Porter Robinson and Crunchyroll are teaming up for a bespoke “animated music experience” at Second Sky, the electronic music star’s Bay Area music festival.
According to a press release shared with EDM.comthe “Anime Shelter” experience will feature DJs from Tokyo’s iconic Akihabara anime nightclub, MOGRA, set to return to the United States for the first time since 2019. Ravagers will also be able to gulp down anime-inspired drinks at the pop-up, which takes its name from Robinson’s 2016 hit, “Shelter.”
“MOGRA is one of my favorite places in the world – all night anisongs and amazing live VJing is an experience that has become justly famous around the world and it’s a place I go to every time that I’m in Japan,” Robinson said. “Crunchyroll (who helped found Shelter) is bringing MOGRA to the US with Second Sky. If you’re coming to the festival, don’t miss it!”

Robinson has long championed anime culture. He teamed up with Crunchyroll in 2016 to produce an anime music video for “Shelter” before the song became one of the most popular songs of his career. The short tells the story of Rin, a young girl “living her life inside a futuristic simulation completely by herself in infinite, beautiful solitude.”
Second Sky 2022 is scheduled for October 29 in Oakland. The festival will feature performances by RL Grime, Hudson Mohawke and a rare collaborative performance by G Jones and Robinson’s Grammy-nominated Virtual Self alias, among others.
