Porter Robinson’s Set Shut Down By Police

Porter Robinson took the stage for his headlining slot at Matador Music Festival in Santa Barbara, California last night at 9:30 and was scheduled to play through until 11:30. The set was laced with heavy electro and many of Porter’s original productions, but at 11 o’clock he came on the microphone saying “I usually never get on the microphone since I like to let the music speak for itself, but I was just told that the cops are going to shut this down in 5 minutes even though I was going to play for another 30. I’ve had such an awesome time and I love all of you for coming out tonight. Before I go, I want to play you guys probably the most important piece of music I’ve ever written. Stay positive”. He proceeded to press play on his world famous track ‘Language’ and the crowd, despite being disappointed by the party getting shut down, was full of good vibes and pure bliss while listening to the song. The song was building to the second drop after Heather Bright’s emotional vocals when all of the sudden pure silence took over. Porter tried to grab the microphone to ask what happened, but that was off too. Everything had been unplugged. EVERYTHING. Porter took to twitter to explain what happened from his point of view after the fact. All I can say is, having been in the crowd myself, we were absolutely not rioting. Not a chance.

The police originally showed up because of multiple sound complaints.

There's no such thing as bad music. I've been told my drunk dance moves are top tier.
