Juliet Mendoza is an Afro-Latina artist LA native, dancer, DJ and a true heart of the underground House music and dance culture. Juliet’s love for the music takes us back to the mid 90’s, house scene where she became a regular in LA house clubs, such as the Arena and Carnival. By her early 20’s, she became a well-known House Dancer and event promoter for LA’s largest house music festivals. Juliet has a true deeply rooted connection to LA house music culture and there is no doubt that Juliet is a truly driven ambassador to the house music culture.

Patrick Mason is a Berlin based Techno & House DJ who conquers dancefloors around the world with his infectious, highly energizing live hybrid sets, which takes the listener on a journey through sound! Patrick Mason epitomises the energy of Berlin’s New Underground: energised, engaged and unmissable. Born cutting shapes on the dance floor at Berghain, graduating to ripping the roof off Panorama Bar with SRVD, Patrick is now burning up clubs from Kyiv to Paris and Moscow to Copenhagen, leaving clubbers wowed in his wake. Whether tearing up parties at Porzellan Bar, Pornceptual or ADE with his hybrid sets of techno and house (as seen on Hör and U.W.S. over the last lockdown) Patrick Mason has designs on your feet, your nights and the future of clubbing.
Farrago surfaces as a new name on the Belgian techno scene albeit with a familiar face. The Belgian DJ and producer his name is synonymous with fast and trippy sounds from the broader spectrum of electronic music. A mix of trancey melodies and psy-infused techno is to be expected when you are surrounded by other ravers on Sam’s dancefloor. CRSSD Festival unveiled a formidable roster of artists, headlining luminaries such as Amelie Lens, Charlotte de Witte, Underworld, Flume, Basement Jaxx, Boys Noize, and Fatboy Slim. The festival grounds teemed with an enthusiastic, sold-out crowd, all eagerly surrendering to the mesmerizing allure of music and festivity beside the glistening sea.
