When seemingly all hope had been written off for a Skrillex festival set in 2022, he delivered a surprise no one saw coming. 

Skrillex was slated to return to the festival circuit this year with scheduled performances at Tampa's Sunset Music Festival and Detroit's Movement. However, just as we turned the corner into summer, the pioneering electronic music producer announced he simply hadn't had the time to prepare as he'd been preoccupied with finishing work on his upcoming albums.


Skrillex confirmed his first festival set of 2022 at Porter Robinson's Second Sky Festival.

This week, Second Sky's organizers accomplished the improbable when they announced Skrillex would be holding down the open slot. In a way, it's especially fitting considering Skrillex was a surprise guest at the Bay Area music festival at its debut edition in 2019.

Second Sky returns on October 29th. Tickets are on sale now.
