Porter Robinson has always been a standout artist who not only appreciates his craft but he equally loves his fans. He recently joined the recent trend of EDM artists curating their own festivals. He, therefore, announced with a video his new festival that he named Multiverse Festival taking place in Oakland, California. The video brought some great Worlds-like vibes to his fans much to their delight. However, the day following the festival announcement there were multiple discussions online about a controversy surrounding the “Multiverse” festival. On Twitter and Instagram, there were people name calling Porter, calling him a racist, a homophobe, saying he is culturally appropriating the EDM scene. This was due to a similarly named festival taking place in Oakland, California. The “Multiverse is Illuminated” festival is a punk rock festival that highlights the inclusion of diverse communities.
In our opinion a lot of people slinging rocks at Porter have a victim complex, claiming cultural appropriation and Porter using his white privilege to oust their festival. We don’t think Porter Robinson was to blame directly for this controversial decision. It is without a doubt that if the production company (GOLDENVOICE) or his team did a thorough search they would have found a similarly named festival taking place in the same city. Porter Robinson and his production company, therefore, renamed it “Second Sky” . The name may not have the same impact but I am sure Porter’s camp just wanted to move on at this point and leave any controversy behind.
The line-up announced as of today is as follows:
Kero Kero Bonito,
Nina Las Vegas,
Porter Robinson Live, and last but not least none other than
