While San Francisco and the Bay Area have long been a hotbed of electronic music culture, the city has few large-scale festivals dedicated entirely to the genre, with Insomniac occasionally producing festivals in nearby Mountain View, Calif. and Porter Robinson’s Second Sky festival happening in the Bay Area in 2019 and 2021. Portola will happen the month before Outside Lands, San Francisco’s flagship music festivals which includes electronic artists but focuses on acts from across genres.

The debut of Portola is being produced by San Francisco venue operator and event producer Non Plus Ultra and Goldenvoice. The 21+ festival will happen at San Francisco’s Pier 80. Tickets go on sale Friday, May 20 and both single and two-day passes will be available.
