It’s been a busy year for the genre bending producer-extraordinaire Pretty Lights, aka Derek Vincent Smith; he’s carrying out the ambitious goal of releasing three EP’s in 2010, all the while criss-crossing the Atlantic, selling out shows all over the U.S. and Europe.
Pretty Lights will be making his way to the UK for a few more shows at the end of the month, including a stop at the one-and-only Glastonbury. After he returns Stateside for some gigs Camp Bisco, Wanderlust, Outside Lands, and the North Coast Music Festival, as well as a very special show headlining the world-renowned Red Rocks Amphitheater on August 7th, to celebrate the release of the second EP!
Red Rocks will feature 2 sets from Pretty Lights, including an exclusive downtempo set. The show also has several stellar opening acts; MiMOSA, Zion I, and Emancipator! The second installment of the 2010 EP trilogy will see release July 29th (more details to be announced soon!) with the third set for the late fall.
Smith self-releases for free all his music through his website, www.PrettyLightsMusic.com, and with over half a million downloads & counting, and sold-out shows nationwide, be sure to check it out!
