The Bay Area is going to pop off this fall. Portola Music Festival, put together by the massive Goldenvoice is set to to take place on September 24th and 25th in San Francisco. The lineup was released earlier this week, and to say it is impressive would be an understatement.
Portola unveiled a unique and tasteful lineup filled with some outstanding performers.
Just taking a look at the day one lineup is instant admiration. Flume headlining is *chefs kiss*. The second line is a thing of beauty too. Kaytranada and Jamie XX are both legendary producers in the electronic scene. Meanwhile, Jungle is one of the most sought after bands in the world, and Charli XCX is sure to bring those electro-pop vibes. The more you read, the more exciting it gets. Fred Again.., who has been on fire and recently teased a new album is sure to be loads of fun. The fourth line features Caribou and a live Bicep performance among others. Day one also includes the rising star in PinkPantheress, the amazing Justin Martin, and one of my personal favorites, Ross from Friends. This is only the tip of the iceberg on what is sure to be an insane first day.
Day two has the tough task of competing with the Saturday lineup. Somehow the Portola organizers were able to pull it off. Led by the Chemical Brothers, day two is plentiful with amazing acts. James Blake, Lane 8, Peggy Gou and Toro y Moi all stand out on the second line. The legendary combo of Four Tet + Floating Points sticks out like a diamond below that. All of this fire without even mentioning Slowthai, Channel Tres and plenty more.
