Porter Robinson thrilled fans with his announcement of a debut music festival this June, co-presented by Goldenvoice. Second Sky Music Festival will be held June 15 and 16 in Oakland, California. The inaugural line-up features Porter himself playing two Worlds (Live) sets, plus a handful of other very unique artists.
The line-up for each day is identical save for G Jones, who will only be playing June 15. His replacement has not yet been announced, though there is speculation it could be Mat Zo, who co-released “Easy” with Porter in 2013.
Unless you have the broadest taste in music on the planet, some of the faces on this line-up might be a bit unfamiliar. Known for his expansive music knowledge, Porter curated this roster of musicians to showcase lesser-known talents, along with some friends (i.e. Madeon and G Jones).
Clearly, the goal of this music festival was not to just slap some huge headlining names on the bill. Second Sky, which sold out within minutes, will give a huge spotlight to some insanely creative and diverse artists. Luckily for festival goers and fans, Porter created a playlist of some of his favorite tunes from each member of the line-up, available on Spotify.
Whether you’re going to the festival or not, give this playlist a listen and maybe you’ll find something new that you love! The festival is completely sold out, but you can still stay up to date with Second Sky news here.
