With Porter Robinson about to embark on his debut festival held in Oakland, California – he is pulling out all the stops when it comes to creating a one of a kind experience. Held on June 15th & 16th, the festival will feature 10 featured musicians, a variety of vendors and a wide array of food and drink at Middle Harbor Shoreline Park. The artists include: Chrome Sparks, Cashmere Cat, Anamanaguchi, Kero Kero Bonito, Madeon, G Jones, Wednesday Campanella, and Nina Las Vegas. However, the most surprising element is that Porter will be both opening and closing his own festival.

According to his post on Twitter, he plans to open up the festival as Virtual Self to get people to arrive early and see all of the other artists. It’s an unheard of move that is sure to help spread the love to his carefully curated cohorts and it is a shining example of his genuine nature. By closing out the festival as Porter Robinson it will likely ensure peak attendance through the duration of the event. Will this be a trend we see replicated in the future?
