Last week, Porter Robinson announced his plan to curate a festival thrown in partnership with Coachella organizers Goldenvoice, and now, we know most of the lineup. Robinson revealed an artist a day via Twitter, breaking down his reasons for booking each. The bill includes some of Robinson's favorite modern acts, including Madeon, Cashmere Cat, G Jones, Nina Las Vegas, Anamanaguchi, Kero Kero Bonito and Wednesday Campanella. It will also be the only place Robinson performs his famous Worlds album performance in 2019.

The festival, coming to Oakland in June, is now called Second Sky, though it was originally announced as Multiverse. Organizers of an annual volunteer-run, donation-based music festival called The Multivrs Is Illuminated wrote an open letter to Porter and Goldenvoice. Their event, centered around LGBTQ artists of color, had debuted in Oakland in 2017, and they didn't take kindly to another "Multiverse" music festival in their neighborhood. Robinson acknowledged their letter and changed the name to Second Sky. The open letter post was deleted.

Second Sky comes to Oakland's Middle Harbor Shoreline Park Saturday, June 15. Presale tickets go on sale Wednesday at 10 a.m., at first-come first-serve tiers ranging from $75 to $95.
