    Coachella is just about a month behind us now, but Goldenvoice continues to drop massive, uniquely curated lineups that make us want to continue traveling to shows all year long. The latest is a new venture called Portola, set at Pier 80 in San Francisco, and the artist selection is simply dazzling.

    Headlining the two-day festival will be Flume and The Chemical Brothers, with appearances from Kaytranada, Jamie xx, Fred Again.., James Blake, M.I.A., Lane 8, Four Tet + Floating Points, Caroline Polachek, Bicep (Live), Ben Böhmer, Fatboy Slim, DJ Shadow, and more over the September 24-25 weekend.

    Presented by Goldenvoice and the brainchild of Goldenvoice VP Talent Buyer Danny Bell, Portola aims to incorporate all different corners of the dance/indie/hip-hop/progressive pop realm. Bell notes, “This is the festival I’ve wanted to produce for the past decade. San Francisco is the perfect city for it and now is the perfect time! Let’s dance and have a great time this September!”

    The festival’s namesake is an ode to the Portola Festival of 1909, which was a celebration of the re-opening of San Francisco, three years after the earthquake of 1906 decimated the city. It was set up to publicize to the world that San Francisco was back open and ready to host tourists. This new festival feels very in line with that ethos, inviting music fans of many genres to come and explore.
