Disclosure, Gesaffelstein, Four Tet & more set to perform at the San Diego electronic fest’s September edition

Time to bust out those HOUSE X TECHNO jackets! To the delight of EDM fans everywhere, San Diego’s spectacular bi-annual electronic music festival CRSSD returns to Waterfront Park on Sept. 28-29 with a killer lineup that includes the likes of Disclosure, Gesaffelstein, Four Tet, and many more.

The lineup features a wide and diverse swath of international touring acts that further underscores CRSSD’s forward-thinking knack for electronic taste-making, spread across three stages: the house-minded Palms stage, techno-leaning City Steps stage, and the picturesque Ocean View live stage.

The Ocean View main stage will feature superstar headliners like English garage-house brothers Disclosure and French dark techno titan Gesaffelstein, in addition to a potent bill of supporting acts like Australian synthpop duo Confidence Man, Belgian dance-punk vets Soulwax, “special guests” Bicep performing their eye-popping CHROMA A/V-DJ set, and more.

Additionally, the house-oriented Palms stage features heavy hitting headliners like Four Tet, who is fresh off the release of his latest album Three, as well as Canadian DJ-producer Blond:ish, German minimal techno maestro Boris Brejcha, and UK garage duo Gorgon City.

Meanwhile, the City Steps stage will receive a sharp dose of hard techno in the form of Italy’s 999999999 and France’s I Hate Models, whose dark, throttling soundscapes will surely galvanize fans of heavier, faster BPMs. Other big names on the City Steps include Swedish trance legend Adam Beyer and high octane Polish DJ-producer-singer-songwriter VTSS.

Overall, the lineup includes a well-balanced mix of legends, scene staples, and up-and-comers. As always, CRSSD transforms Waterfront Park into a vibrant club environment, offering a more intimate and picturesque setting to take in an electronic music festival. A typically diverse and friendly crowd is the cherry on top of it all. If you reside in San Diego, or live somewhere else and love house and techno, this festival is simply a can’t-miss event.
