“Are you kidding me?!? You’ve never seen Porter?!? YOU. WILL. CRY.” If you, like me, were late to the PR phenomena, I imagine you’ve probably heard a similar refrain from one of Porter Robinson’s many hardcore fans. From his groundbreaking debut Worlds to his ‘Shelter’ collaboration with Madeon and his early 2000s love letter as Virtual Self (complete with laser show that almost melted my brain at HARD Summer), Porter Robinson has proven himself to be one of the most dynamic artists in the electronic genre right now. On Saturday, June 15, he will unveil his next endeavor – Porter Robinson’s Multiverse Festival, a one-of-a-kind unique event for his fans, set to take place at Middle Harbor Shoreline Park (MHSP) in the Bay Area in Oakland, California.
The lineup, handpicked by Robinson himself (fingers crossed for another Madeon collab), will be released throughout the week this week, so make sure to stay tuned for updates! I really, really hope there’s an appearance by Virtual Self scheduled. I appreciate the softer side of Porter, but I, like he, grew up during the dawn of the internet and I fucking LOVE lasers!
