As fall descends on San Francisco and the August fog rolls away, the Bay Area temperatures stay warm, allowing for more fun in the sun. Making its debut this year is Goldenvoice’s Portola Festival, which kicks off September 24-25 at Pier 80. The name is an ode to the Portola Festival of 1909, marking the reopening of San Francisco after the 1906 earthquake. These festivities signify the return to events and dancing in 2022.
Attendees can catch some of the biggest names in dance music across four stages, all with spectacular views of downtown or the bay. Artists on the lineup include Flume, Gorgon City, Bob Moses, Justin Martin, Lane 8, Channel Tres, and the newest household name Fred Again... Whether your vibe is more experimental, house, or funk-inspired beats, there will be no shortage of fantastic music and dancing all weekend long.

Unfortunately, many people have reported pickpockets, bag slashings, and theft of wallets, smartphones, purses, and other valuables during this festival season. While this small number of bad apples in the bunch doesn’t define an entire crowd, there are opportunistic people who come to these events to take advantage of unsuspecting partygoers, and it’s important to be mindful of your valuables while at Portola Festival.
