The DJ and producer Pretty Lights (Derek Vincent Smith) has been dropping new announcements left and right this year, with the biggest one yet coming yesterday. Earlier in April, Pretty Lights dropped that a destination event was in the works for December of this year dubbed Island of Light, with more information coming soon. Well, now the wait is over—the Colorado producer has big plans for Island of Light, and he just announced where its going down and who’s coming along with him for the ride.
The four-day destination event will go down at El Conquistador – A Waldorf Astoria Resort in Fajardo, Puerto Rico. Island of Light is scheduled to run from December 7th through 10th this winter, and in addition to performances by Pretty Lights, will also see sets by Thievery Corporation, Atmosphere, Gramatik, Break Science, Cut/Copy, Tycho, French Kiwi Juice, Lettuce, Emancipator Ensemble, The Floozies, Manic Focus, Ganja White Night, Michael Menert, Thriftworks, Late Night Radio, and Maddy O’Neal and more, in addition to the bountiful collaborations that can only go down at these special destination events.
Island of Light is set to be a decadent affair, and music will be going all day long with a main stage on a private island that attendees boat to and from (!!!), daytime poolside sets, and late-night ballroom sets. The Island of Light experience is all-inclusive, with concert tickets, buffet food offerings, drinks, lodging, and transportation to and from the airport included with the event, in addition to discounted rates on local excursions, resort amenities, and even swankier restaurants on site.
Information about pricing is released this Wednesday, and tickets for Island Of Light on sale on the event’s website here on Friday, May 10th, at 12 p.m. EST / 9 a.m. PST; this is going to be an event you don’t want to miss, so snag your tickets fast once they’re up!
