Pretty Lights Announces Two-Night Stint at Red Rocks on August 7-8
Back in February, Pretty Lights announced that he will be hosting a two-night camping festival in Telluride, Colorado on August 28 and 29. Due to its seclusion from city life and picturesque mountain scenery, Telluride Town Park is certainly a proper setting for this event.
Now, he's showing Colorado even more love by announcing a two-night stint at the famous Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison, CO. Having sold out the venue five years in a row, you can expect a similar result this time around. His 2014 performance at Red Rocks marked a special one for Derek Vincent Smith (aka Pretty Lights), as he was joined by members of the Colorado Symphony Orchestra on stage, which you can see in the recap video above. This second night of his Red Rocks performances was hailed by Hey Reverb as “exactly the kind of visual and aural spectacle that sets Pretty Lights apart in the live music milieu… a milestone show.”
Pretty Lights, in a note to the fans on his Facebook page, says, "Pretty Lights x Red Rocks 2015 will truly be the first PL concert that it will be possible to show to the family I love, the world through my lens and convey why this music was ever connected to the idea of 'pretty lights' in the first place." Certainly, Pretty Lights has some tricks up his sleeve for this one. This is a must-attend for fans in the Colorado area.
