Pretty Lights tickets - Pretty Lights Tour

Tour/Concert Schedule

Get into the funky grooves courtesy of Pretty Lights when this popular electronic artist comes to a city near you. Look forward to electro, organic and cutting-edge party beats that flow through venues across the nation with energy and emotion. This talented artist has become popular in several musical genres, and is always there to give audiences an unforgettable entertainment experience.

Pretty Lights is heading out on tour and you'll want to see this electronic artist produce amazing beats live. He has been on the scene since 2006 and has amassed a large following of fans around the world. They have played everything from the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival to the Ultra Music Festival in Miami to the Evolve Festival in Nova Scotia to the Outsidelands Festival in San Francisco. He'll be making stops in Portland, Reno, San Francisco and Denver.


Trivia

Pretty Lights knew that music would be a part of his life. He began creating samples when he was just a high school student, and over the next several years, developed his own unique style. His music contains a lot of digital sampling and includes music from a variety of musical genres. He combines hip hop beats that tend to be considered "glitchy"—because they start and stop throughout the track—with synthesizers and organic music that he plays through a Novation X-Station and an Akai MPD32. He uses computer programs to create his multi-faceted shows, relying on the Ableton Live 8 software during his live performances. He considers his style to be that of "Electro Hip-Hop Soul," that mixes elements of electronic music and hard-rocking beats from hip-hop and soul music.


About the Artist

When Derek Vincent Smith is up on stage he is known as Pretty Lights. He is an electronic music artist, who also owns Pretty Lights Music record label. Smith got his start when he began penning and producing his own hip hop music while attending high school in Fort Collins, Colorado. After high school, he went onto the University of Colorado at Boulder but decided to suspend his academic career to pursue his passion for music.

In 2007 and 2008, Cory Eberhard and Smith burned the midnight oil playing nights for The Disco Biscuits, Widespread Panic and STS9. In the summer of 2009, with the new moniker Pretty Lights, Smith and Eberhard participated in major festivals, including Bonnaroo, Rothbury, the Electric Daisy Carnival, Camp Bisco, Wakarusa and 10KLF. The following fall they kicked off a multi-city tour of the U.S. They've since been a top-billed act at festivals like Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival and the Ultra Music Festival in Miami. Pretty Lights put his name on the map in 2011 when he performed a remix of "Take Me Home, Country Roads" by legendary singer and performer John Denver. He called it a "once in a lifetime" track, and the crowd went wild. The one-of-a-kind remix earned the artist national exposure and more notoriety. He was featured in a documentary in 2012 that included other big-name artists like LeAnn Rimes and Ralph Stanley. Collaborating with these artists was another new direction for the electronic musician that made him stand out from the crowd.

Today, Smith continues to take Pretty Lights globally, and is now accompanied in the live setting by drummer, Adam Deitch. Together, the duo creates a raw energy rarely reached in the electronic music arena. Pretty Lights is traveling the world, performing music from his latest album, A Color Map of the Sun—that was released in July of 2013—and giving his fans what they really want—to see him live. His latest tracks included music he recorded in Brooklyn, New Orleans and Denver. They are amazing to listen to on vinyl, but they are even better in person.


Breakthrough Performance

Since 2007, Pretty Lights has been creating and performing his one-of-a-kind music. While the artist had acquired a large following of fans early in his career, it wasn't until he began performing solo at music festivals that the world began to take notice. In 2009 and 2010, Pretty Lights made appearances at the Bonnaroo, Rothbury, Camp Bisco and 10KLF music festival, introducing the world to his signature sound. Then, in 2011, he became a national sensation when he performed a "once in a lifetime" remix of John Denver's "Take Me Home, Country Roads," for a delighted crowd at the All Good Music Festival in Masontown, West Virginia. Since then, the artist has come to be known internationally and is one of the hottest, young performers in the electronic music world.


Fan Experience

There's never a dull moment when pretty lights takes the stage. With a full band, backup singers and the addition of rapper Talib Kweli, his live shows are nothing short of amazing. The talented electronic musician creates remixes on the spot, playing his Novation X-Station and Akai MPD32 like an instrument. The combination of mediums and genres makes for a multi-faceted concert experience that will have you begging for more. You will be waving your hands in the air and dancing along to the killer beats and full-bodied sound.
