This is why, with only four months to go until the end of the year, FNGRS CRRSD has announced the lineup for PROPER NEW/NEW event to try and give us all something special to look forward to.
This announcement comes on the heels of a successful debut sell-out last year, and a sold-out fall edition of CRSSD festival this September. Returning to PetCo Park in San Diego, CA, PROPER has swiftly become a destination festival in Southern California.
While the final lineup will host over 50 unique and talented artists, phase one definitely sets things off on the right foot.
