CRSSD announces first arm of fall lineup: Portugal. The Man, Fisher, Amelie Lens, + moreCRSSD

San Diego’s biannual bedrock electronic music destination, CRSSD, has announced the first lineup phase of its fall run for 2019. At the top of the Sep 28-29 ticket sits indie sensations, Portugal. The Man, feverish house frenzy, Fisher, preeminent techno talent, Richie Hawtin, and more.

In just a handful of years since its harbor-side genesis along Waterfront Park, CRSSD has become a mainstay within Southern California’s festival front. Riddled with the niche, underground sounds that make dance music so beautifully beguiling, CRSSD’s curation has flourished in immaculately kept time with dance and indie culture.

Typical for each installment, CRSSD organizers will speckle its artistry across three stylized stages, as view of the picturesque Pacific glistens in their wakes. House heads would do well to flock to the The Palms, where Shiba San and Walker & Royce will hop on a back-to-back display. Techno is ever in the air at the City Steps, where Amelie Lens, Richie Hawtin, and more mavens of the moment will find their low-lit dwelling place. Finally, the Ocean View will house an amalgamation of experimental sounds from a-CRSSD the board, like Hot Chip, KAYTRANADA, and Portugal. The Man.

Ultra Music Festival is going to be hard pressed to top last year’s Miami edition, but with the delivery of 2019’s first phase lineup it looks like the festival is aiming to do just that. This year’s event of course included Swedish House Mafia‘s not-so-secret headlining reunion and it was the last edition to be held at the festival’s longtime home at Bayfront Park. Now, with the move to Virginia Key, Ultra is pulling out all the stops, starting with a top-notch lineup that’s teeming with talent.

The first headliners announced include Martin Garrix, David Guetta, Tiësto, ZEDD, and Marshmello among others, and live sets are expected from deadmau5, who will be officially debuting the Cube 3.0 ODESZA, Louis the Child, and more. The first phase lineup includes a massive supporting cast as well, from Whethan to Jai Wolf, Kayzo to Phantoms with droves of acts in between. Shasha and John Digweed will share the stage, Richie Hawtin, Maceo Plex, and Carl Cox are slated to bring the underground flavor, and deadmau5 will pull double duty as Testpilot at Virginia Key Beach & Miami Marine Stadium over the weekend of March 29 – 31. See Ultra’s full phase one lineup below.
