Produced by Goldenvoice, Portola is again happening at Pier 80, a million square foot maritime shipping pier owned by the Port of San Francisco. Tickets for Portola 2023 go on sale Monday, May 22.
The festival was conceived and is produced by Goldenvoice’s Senior vp/talent buyer Danny Bell, who was recently featured in Billboard‘s 40 Under 40 list and who last year told Billboard that “one of the things I learned from from [Goldenvoice CEO and Coachella Co-Founder] Paul [Tollett], just how personal you can make these lineups and see how people are more interested in a festival with a personality and a concept behind it instead of just a collection of artists that on paper seem as if they could sell a certain amount of tickets at a certain ticket price.”
