Over the weekend, Pretty Lights anonymously sent 50 lucky #PLFamily members a FedEx package with a wooden USB drive filled with 20+ unreleased live “flips” and soft announcement materials for Pretty Lights (Live)‘s return to Red Rocks Amphitheater and Huntington Bank Pavilion at Northerly Island in Chicago, IL. Details for Northerly Island’s episodic festival have today been shared by promoters Silver Wrapper, who are also presenting the inaugural Island of Light festival in Puerto Rico.
On August 18th-19th, Pretty Lights (Live) will hit Northerly Island with special guests The Floozies, Big Wild, Soul Rebels, Chali 2na, CloZee, and Maddy O’Neal. General On Sale begins Friday, May 19th at 11am CST right here. Check it out:
In a recent interview with Derek Vincent Smith, he confirms there will be a total of eight of these events, including the recently announced The Gorge Ampthieatre weekend and the returns to Red Rocks Ampitheatre and Northerly Island. Two weeks ago, he hosted a surprise second line parade and pop-up show in New Orleans so demonstrate the direction of Pretty Lights.
The massive production on Sunday doubled as a celebration and a music video shoot for Pretty Lights’ newest single, “The Sun Spreads In Our Minds,” which we can officially expect to hear next month. The song is also the lead track on the upcoming Pretty Lights album—his first official release since 2013’s A Color Map Of The Sun. More information can be found here.
