OMNIA Nightclub Announces Porter Robinson for EDC Week

Today OMNIA Nightclub added to it’s already-stacked lineup for EDC week, commencing May 15. Already featuring Cash Cash, Martin Garrix and Zedd, OMNIA added 25 year old Porter Robinson for Thursday, May 17. Having already played OMNIA San Diego, Hakkasan Nightclub and JEWEL Nightclub, Porter is no stranger to Hakkasan Group, however this will be his debut show at the illustrious OMNIA Nightclub Las Vegas.

In a way, for people to fully understand my music, they need to know the narrative of the last six years of my life,” says Porter Robinson, of the leap hes made from electro-house producer to genre-busting musician.

That music can be heard on his first studio album, Worlds (Astralwerks/Virgin EMI), a journey through textural synth-pop. It has, at turns, been called gorgeous (New York Times), delightful (Rolling Stone), and imaginative (NPR). And with more than 185 million album streams under his belt, 100,000+ in ticket sales for his 2014 Worlds Live tour, plus triumphant headline appearances across the global festival circuit with his groundbreaking live show; Porters fans have stood by him in kind. Some, admittedly, more emphatically than others.

What’s now come full circle began a few years back, when Porter turned down countless DJ offers to devote himself to introspection and reinvention. “I figured that one way to develop a unique identity as an artist would be to combine all my favorite things in music — it would result in a collective expression of my taste and experience. Something nobody else has.”
