Matt Garrett, a 22-year-old apparel design major is huge fan of the festival. He has been to both Spring and Fall 2015 festivals and has his ticket for next weekend.

“I’m a CRSSD fest lifer, between the fantastic venue, the subtle Coachella vibes and the 21 and up crowd, it’s difficult to not like the festival,” said Garrett. The balance between mainstream and underground music keeps him coming back each time.

Ali Griner, 23-year-old Psychology major purely likes that this festival sets a specific tone with their age requirement being 21 years old. “It really gives the festival a different feel. My favorite part of the festival was watching the sun set over the water,” said Griner.

The CRSSD After Dark Party series will be returning for the March festival. The after parties are scheduled for Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Locations include Bang Bang, SPIN Nightclub, Music Box San Diego, and the Andaz Hotel.
