Here’s what I ended up with, and it seems to work.
$upcoming_query = new WP_Query(array( 'post_type' => 'my_event', 'numberposts' => -1, 'posts_per_page' => 1000000, 'meta_query' => array( 'relation' => 'AND', 'start_date_clause' => array( 'key' => 'start_date', 'value' => Carbon::now()->format("Ymd"), 'compare' => '>=', ), 'same_date_sort_clause' => array( 'key' => 'same_date_sort', // higher number is earlier 'compare' => 'EXISTS', ), ), 'orderby' => array( 'start_date_clause' => "DESC", 'same_date_sort_clause' => "ASC" ) ));
The same_date_sort/EXISTS clause doesn’t do anything (they all have that field), but it lets me use same_date_sort_clause/ASC for sorting below.
