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 new direction of Pretty Lights. The parade ended beneath a highway overpass, setting up those in attendance for an intimate, once-in-a-lifetime performance by the pioneering DJ/producer, a brigade of brass blowers, and the many musical friends who joined in along the way.

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.
