Second Sky is set to make its return this year with a stacked lineup. Stay in the know before you go with the set times and essential info!


After two years, Porter Robinson’s Second Sky Festival returns to the Bay Area this weekend. The two-day event will take place on September 18-19 at the Oakland Arena Grounds, and features a diverse lineup including KNOWER, Wavedash, Jacob Collier, Jon Hopkins, Jai Wolf, and Madeon. Additionally, Porter will be opening each day with his brand new Air to Earth project and closing with the debut of his Nurture Live Set.

Fans will enter the world of Second Sky with immersive experiences, and as incredible as 2019’s inaugural festival was, this year is sure to level up and exceed expectations. Lockers and various food options will be available throughout the venue. Additionally, the Robinson Malawi Fund will be onsite accepting donations.

To ensure the safety of all attending, proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test within 72 hours of the event are required. Attendees are also asked to keep their masks on despite vaccination status, except when eating and drinking. The venue is outdoors but safety should still be the number one priority.

Her world opened up after attending Beyond Wonderland Bay Area in 2014, and she hasn't looked back since. Her love for electronic music has brought her across the globe from The Gorge to Amsterdam Dance Event and the Armada Studio for A State of Trance Live, but as a Denver-native Red Rocks will always have a special place in her heart. Boasting an annual high of 50 shows and festivals, Ashley lives for thrill and energy of electronic sets. She loves all things uplifting trance, progressive house, and melodic bass. Her favorite artists include Above & Beyond, Illenium, Odesza, Said the Sky, Ilan Bluestone, Arty, and Andrew Bayer. Catch her on dance floors across the SF Bay Area!
