It's not all that often that an artist plays the opening time slot at their own curated festival - but then again, Porter Robinson is not your average artist. He will deliver a set as Virtual Set at his very own Second Sky Festival shortly after doors open.

Robinson's reasoning for the unconventional programming is commendable. By drawing his fans to the festival grounds early on, he hopes to maximize the number of attendees who will watch the other artists billed for the festival.

Second Sky Festival was originally a single-day event - but after tickets sold out in a matter of minutes Robinson and Goldenvoice added a second day, which also sold outNina Las Vegas, AnamanaguchiKero Kero Bonito, G Jones and Madeon are the artists on the bill.

Second Sky Festival will take place on June 15th and 16th at Middle Harbor Shoreline Park in Oakland, California.
