It’s almost been three years since the release of Pretty Lights‘ last album, ‘A Color Map of the Sun‘ and the withdrawal has been serious. With rumors of Basslights 2016 not happening, along with Pretty Lights being absent from this year’s Camp Bisco lineup, fans everywhere were concerned with when they’d be able to see their favorite artist again. However, after the release of his latest single, “Only Yesterday,” and some cryptic messages on social media, our prayers are finally being answered!
Our lord and savior, Derek Vincent Smith, officially announced that he’ll finally be hitting the road again this summer and he’s bringing some serious heat along with him! Watch the official announcement video below and catch the full press release for more details and links to purchase your tickets!
Inspired by 2015’s landmark two-day festival in Telluride, CO – Pretty Lights will host “An Episodic Festival” – a series of multi-day events this summer and fall, complete with a live band featuring Derek Vincent Smith, Brian Coogan, Borahm Lee, Alvin Ford Jr. and Chris Karns. Each stop will host a variety of special guests, curated by Derek Vincent Smith. Please find lineups for each event listed below.
The upcoming events continue the vision of the two-day gatherings, visiting Gilford (New Hampshire), Chicago, Nashville and also include two Colorado weekends, at Red Rocks Amphitheatre and Telluride Town Park. Both series of Colorado appearances will feature two sets per night from Pretty Lights.
