On the second and final day of Porter Robinson's very own Second Sky Music Festival, he shocked fans by announcing a surprise set from a new artist named "DJ Potaro." After a few laughs and cheers, DJ Potaro took off his costume and revealed himself to be none other than Skrillex

Although rumors of his inclusion were circulating throughout the festival grounds, fans were still blown away by the appearance of the eight-time Grammy-winning producer. In order to quell the rumors and make the surprise even more exciting, Skrillex had tried to mislead fans into thinking he was unable to attend Second Sky.

In typical Skrillex (real name Sonny Moore) fashion, he played a diverse mix of tracks from his expansive library as well as two tracks fans believe to be never-before-heard IDs.
