CRSSD's Fall Lineup is a Game-Changing Mix of Live and Electronic
The Flaming Lips, Ben Klock, TV on the Radio, Maya Jane Coles, Jamie xx, Bonobo. Do we need to keep going?
It would be news enough that newfangled San Diegan festival brand CRSSD is announcing a second festival in 2015 to take place this Fall (October 10-11, to be exact), but the lineup released today pulls off the melding of electronic and indie, mainstream and underground, in a way we've not seen before.
Electronic heavyweights from across the spectrum like Ben Klock, Bonobo, Maya Jane Coles, and Jamie xx sit alongside live acts like The Flaming Lips, TV on the Radio, Todd Terje and Hercules and Love Affair.
On the underground DJ tip: Mano Le Tough, DJ Tennis, Bicep, Justin Jay and Toyboy & Robin will all man the decks.
After CRSSD's wildly successful initial jaunt earlier this year, it looks like they're striding forward with a confident booking identity that will please both chin-strokers and toe-tappers alike.
