CRSSD FEST at San Diego

Even though it’s been a while since I attended the CRSSD Fest at San Diego, I wanted to share my experience and some of the pictures I took on the trip. So one of the main reasons I decided to go to this festival was to finally see Pleasure State, which is of my favorite groups right now. Also, the lineup itself was incredible, many great artists played that weekend, such as: Maceo Plex, Bixel Boys, Jamie Jones, Hot Natured and Seth Troxler. IMG_9964 One of the best highlights of the festival was that it wasn’t very big, so it was very easy to walk to different stages and see all of the artists you wanted to see without choosing one over the other. That’s one of the downfalls of attending music festivals, when they schedule two of your favorite artists to play at the same time and on opposite sides, which sucks. Yet, CRSSD Fest was very different from previous festivals I’ve attended. It was a lot more chill and soothing because even though there was a lot of people,IMG_0001 there wasn’t as many where you felt like you were suffocating. Plus, the view was beautiful specially in the afternoons with California’s incredible sunsets. Even though it was a very hot weekend it was a very magical one as well. Coming from a girl who has lived in Texas all of her life, I was excited for that Cali weather, which wasn’t what I was expecting. The weather was very VERY hot. Good thing the festival was at the Waterfront Park, which has several fountains where people would go get wet. I never actually did it, but was very tempted to. IMG_9978 So now to the good stuff. The music was amazing! My favorite set was probably the Bixel Boys B2B Viceroy. It was the first time I saw all of them live and it was definitely the best out of all of the others I saw. They had such a good vibe going on and everybody was having such a good time, including myself.

Pleasure State played right after their set and they were awesome! This stage –The Palms– was actually my favorite of all; it’s where I had the most fun! Jamie Jones B2B IMG_0170Seth Troxler was right after Pleasure State, so that basically says it all. This stage had all the good stuff going on and being a small stage makes it even better. I love being close to artists when playing and having that personal interaction with them, even though they’re doing their own thing. Plus, I got to meet Anabel Englund right after her Pleasure State set and she’s very cool with an awesome personality.

I’ll finish up telling you about Maceo Plex B2B Shall Ocin set. People were in a different dimension thrown in their own world of underground music. I’ve always had a thing for individuals who are completely devoted to focusing on the music –the sound, the bass, the melody. It’s something that inspires me when listening to music or attending music festivals. IMG_0264Music is such a powerful thing and can transform individuals or change their state of mind for at least a couple of hours. This set had all of these things. People were dancing,  feeling the beat every single second.
