With CRSSD Festival only a few weeks away, the excitement in the air is palpable! CRSSD 2023 is gearing up to be one of the most exciting festivals of the season with a stacked lineup, great San Diego weather, and good vibes!
Since 2015, CRSSD has changed the urban festival experience, attracting artists from the underground scene all the way to grammy nominated talent. CRSSD holds a special place for artists and festival attendees alike.
In preparation for this year’s festival, we have compiled 5 artists you have to put at the top of your list of “must-see” and a great playlist to go along with it. Whether it’s a main stage headliner or someone you might discover for the first time, we have you covered. So dive into 5 artists you do not want to miss out on, and give the playlist a listen.
Roaring into 2023 with their 4th album on the docket, Odesza’s The Last Goodbye leans into house elements that have influenced them for the last few years. With Bettye LaVette lending her vocals to ODESZA’s album title song, the duo crafted a tune that highlights their next-level production ability. It is no wonder that they will be headlining this year’s CRSSD!
Lane 8 has been a staple in crafting some of the most iconic blended houses in the modern era. His ability to create lengthy tracks that suck the listener in, and leave them in a trance is laudable. Lane 8 always knows how to control the energy on stage, and CRSSD will be no exception.
Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs
British producer, Orlando Tobias Edward Higginbottom, better known by his stage name, Totally enormous extinct dinosaurs is a true artist. His song, Household Goods has synths that are unmatched, despite the fact that the song is over 10 years old! More recently, he worked with Porter Robinson on the track Unfold which highlights his versatility.
Just over 13 years ago, Yelle came out with a music video for their song A Cause Des Garcons. At the time, a dance called Tecktonik existed in the same era as jumpstyle and shuffling. Yelle’s music video is identifiably the most recognizable Tecktonik dance. While the dance fell out of popularity, Yelle continues to deliver fun hypnotic beats with female vocals driving their tracks.
Polo & Pan
French music duo Alexandre Grynszpan & Paul Armand- Delille have incredibly versatile musical abilities. That versatility is immediately apparent in their song Nana, which uses Portuguese along with vocal chops, and vibrant instrumentation. Polo & Pan is going to be one of the best acts to see at CRSSD.
Whether the tickets are in hand or secured the day of, gearing up with a festival playlist is necessary. Thankfully, we have curated a playlist for this year’s stacked CRSSD lineup which includes ODESZA, Polo & Pan, Lane 8, and more!
