5 Dance-Provoking Sets We Cant Wait To Experience At Day.MVS XL

This weekend, FNGRS CRSSD, the San Diego mastermind behind CRSSD Festival, will open its doors to an unforgettable weekend at DayMVS.XL.

On August 6-7, the city’s house and techno communities will come together to dance at an urban oasis called Waterfront Park––a seaside venue filled with water fountains, clear walking paths, and lush green grass.

There’s no denying the revitalized energy this party brings to town. Having said that, this is not your usual night-outing in the city’s infamous Gaslamp Club District. This is a unique 21+ weekender under the San Diego skyline.

During the day, prime acts like Eric Prydz, Duke Dumont, and Miss Monique will take over the Northside of the festival grounds. As the sun goes down, talents like ANNA, Overmono, Pig&Dan, and DJ Minx will fill the night sky with four-on-the-floor beats on the Southside. Once the fun is tucked away for the evening, event-goers will have a plethora of FNGRS CRSSD curated after parties to attend.

Now, here are five dance-provoking sets you won’t want to miss along with a playlist for the thrilling weekend ahead:
