Skrillex Announces His First Festival Performance of 2022 Will Be at Porter Robinson’s Second Sky

When seemingly all hope had been written off for a Skrillex festival set in 2022, he delivered a surprise no one saw coming. 

Skrillex was slated to return to the festival circuit this year with scheduled performances at Tampa's Sunset Music Festival and Detroit's Movement. However, just as we turned the corner into summer, the pioneering electronic music producer announced he simply hadn't had the time to prepare as he'd been preoccupied with finishing work on his upcoming albums.


Skrillex confirmed his first festival set of 2022 at Porter Robinson's Second Sky Festival.

It seemed that was going to be the end of it. Then in late September, Fred again.., who was one of the scheduled artists set to play at Porter Robinson's Second Sky, announced he had to pull out in order to meet the timeline for the release of his upcoming album, Actual Life 3.
