Since graduating from high school in 2011, Robinson has quickly risen through the ranks of the international electronic music scene. His debut EP “Spitfire,” released on Skrillex’s OWSLA label, reached No. 1 on Beatport’s overall chart and iTunes dance chart. In 2011, he performed on Skrillex’s “OWSLA Summer Tour” and Tiësto’s “College Invasion Tour.” Robinson has also shared the stage with other notable electronic dance music superstars including DeadMau5, Afrojack, A-Trak and David Guetta. This year, Robinson is scheduled to headline numerous shows across North America as well as perform at Coachella and Ultra Music festivals.
“It’s refreshing to hear the new generation’s influence on electronic dance music,” said Sean Christie, co-owner and managing partner of Surrender Nightclub and Encore Beach Club. “Porter Robinson is one of the genre’s breakout stars and we are thrilled that he will be performing at Surrender Nightclub first to kick off his new residency at Wynn Las Vegas.”
“Porter represents the future of electronic dance music,” said Jesse Waits, co-owner and managing partner of XS and Tryst nightclubs. “At just 19 years old, he has created a style that is fresh and unique, earning praise from some of the most respected talent in the business. His music combined with XS’ incomparable energy will offer an extraordinary experience for our guests throughout the year.”
