Skrillex Surprises Crowd as Special Guest for Porter Robinson’s Second Sky Festival

Seeing “Special Guest” listed on a Music Festival Lineup doesn’t always mean that you will get a chance to see a special performance by a huge artist. However, this wasn’t the case at the First Annual Second Sky Festival where Porter Robinson brought out Skrillex to play a set on the second day of the Festival.

Porter began the announcement of the special guest by saying “I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but our secret guest is actually not able to make it today, but we do have a backup. His name is DJ Potato and he is a new DJ, but he is really, really good. Trust me.” at which point someone dressed in a blue mascot costume walked on stage and behind the DJ Booth and Porter commented that “He does need a little help pressing play on the CDJ.” As the music began, the massive blue costume was removed and Skrillex began his set.

The sold-out Two Day festival seemed to be a huge success with an incredible lineup including Virtual Self, Porter Robinson, Madeon and Cashmere Cat. Hopefully, this festival will become an annual event with an increasing lineup of top EDM Artists from around the world.
