Summer may be over, but that’s no reason to end the festivities! Just ask British DJ and EDM pioneer Fatboy Slim from Brighton, who was in San Diego last month to headline the iconic CRSSD Festival.
Although hipper and less rave-y than EDC Las Vegas, CRSSD is still an amazing bacchanalia of heart-pounding house and techno music. If you can’t grind your shoes to dust at the end of the day, never fear, there are a wide variety of irresistible “after dark” sets available for a complete solution.
On the downtown San Diego waterfront, the combination of an extravagant light show and salty mist in the air makes it quite a rare spot. Filled with gallons of San Diego’s infamous craft beer, great food, and music, it’s no surprise that it’s nearly impossible to find a parking space within a few miles of the stage. While the vibe offers a more polished and mature festival experience, make no mistake, this is a party to rock some of the most talented artists in the industry.
This year’s lineup blended a mix of electronic legends, up-and-coming talent, and genre leaders such as Dom Dolla, Joesph Capriati, Richie Hawtin, ARTBAT, Jamie xx, Sonny Fodera, and more. One of our favourites, legendary emcee Fatboy Slim, graciously gave us an exclusive insight into the festival through his photo diary. Check it out below (captions from the artist himself)!

Awesome studio on site at CRSSD, they had some crazy material in there… I was lucky enough to be interviewed about my musical inspirations by the lovely folks at Synth History.
Made myself a new companion on this summer’s travels… great DJ @mochakk
My longtime tour manager Al fell ill this week, so thanks @Alex_jones26 for stepping in. We did it!
“Ain’t No Love in the Jungle” Fred remixed at CRSSD yet again, and seemed appropriate for their Palms scene
