Techno or House? Here’s 5 Can’t-Miss Performances at the Fall 2023 Edition of CRSSD

In just a few short days, the lively streets of downtown San Diego will be enveloped by the rhythmic beats of house and techno. Centered around Waterfront Park, a symphony of today's best in both genres will be a part of the fall edition of CRSSD Fest

Curated by FNGRS CRSSD, the festival has become a staple of the bevy of offerings in the SoCal metropolis. The idyllic bayside locale will once again offer three stages with acts from across the electronic music spectrum.

We here at have scoured the roster of artists to highlight must-see performances during the fall edition of CRSSD Fest. From groovy house producers to techno mavens and everything in-between, these are our top performances to catch under the San Diego sky.


The eclectic sounds coming from this Norwegian duo have been bouncing around the ethers of the dance music scene for decades. As a testament to their resilience, the pair have embarked on their True Electric tour, of which CRSSD Fest is a part. Expect a spectacle of classics and newer cuts from their latest, Profound Mysteries II.


It's safe to say that today's electronic music scene wouldn't be where it is without Underworld. Flag-bearers of the newer synth sounds coming out of the 80s, the British electronic band has persisted through the shifting tones of the industry. Expect a stellar show from these true masters of craft.

She may be months away from giving birth, but that's not stopping Amelie Lens from continuing to deliver hard-hitting performances. This very pregnant Belgian powerhouse will be coming to San Diego on the heels of closing out her summer season in Ibiza, where she has reigned over the stage at DC-10. We anticipate being knocked to the floor by her sultry yet elevated techno beats.

Chris Stussy

Having just released his latest album as part of Across Boundaries with Locklead, Chris Stussy is sure to bring the groovy house productions he's known for to the Palms stage.

Aided by his love for house music, this Dutch DJ has emerged as a powerhouse blending minimal, deep cuts with high-energy four-on-the-floor bangers. We can't wait to dance "All Night Long" with the Stuss-master.


The emerging melodic, layered productions that reside within the realms of electronica have been ushered in by artists such as Cassian.

2020's debut album Laps provided fans with a collection of distinct soundscapes that have advanced the current wave of melodic house and techno. Cassian's recent partnership with Anyma on the rework of "My City's On Fire" is one such example of the artistry coming out of this Australian virtuoso.
