"Two Nights Under The Starlit Skies In The Majestic Colorado Mountains"
Pretty Lights, one of the most influential faces in live electronic music, and Colorado's hero, always continues to keep his fans guessing with unexpected twists every single year. Last year he managed to work with the Colorado Symphony to have them play with him for his last two nights at the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre.. a venue he's been selling out for over 4 years now. He has headlined festivals all across the world and played in the smallest and biggest of cities. This week he has revealed some very exciting, and long awaited news, the first ever true Pretty Lights camping event. The guy has been dominating the camping festival circuit for years now, so it only made sense.
He has chosen the gorgeous location of Telluride, Colorado, and specifically the Telluride Town Park, out in the open right next to the gorgeous Rocky Mountains as close as you can get to the stars. He is set takeover the amazing outdoor location over August 28th and 29th this summer where he will be making history.
This is what Derek Vincent Smith aka Pretty Lights has to say about the special 2 day gathering:
"I've thought a lot about what a perfect place to throw a Pretty Lights concert might be, and what that actually means. I think that Telluride Town Park might be a place like that. The energy that resonates there is beyond the cusp of my own understanding but it is powerful and undeniable. I think that the seclusion of Telluride creates a real opening to focus on getting in touch.. with each other, ourselves, and the vibrations we experience as music, light, and life. PLUS the stars shine incredibly bright and the mountains are jaw dropping. These two nights in Telluride will be an awesome and historic opportunity to experience a live Pretty Lights show in what may be the perfect venue,"
You can purchase tickets to this special, extremely unique event through here on Feb 27th.

The great people of Insomniac, who are responsible for bringing us Electric Daisy Carnival, which is now one of the biggest electronic music festivals worldwide have announced some exciting plans to throw a new festival at the festival grounds where the iconic Woodstock Music Festival went down (for it’s 1994 tribute edition). The anticipated capacity will be 75,000 people throughout the multi-day projected festival.
This would be extremely appropriate venue for Insomniac to take their theatric carnival inspired antics to heights completely taking over a field rather then just a race track or arena.
This is what Simon Lamb, chief operating officer of Insomniac had to say:
What makes our events special relative to other music festivals and other concerts, you know, (is) we create an environment that’s filled with installation art, fireworks, costumed performers,” Lamb said. “It’s much more of a combination of a carnival, theater, music, art and special effects. We encourage the audience to participate in the event.” He said Insomniac has been producing dance music events for nearly 20 years, including the Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas, Nev.”
We will keep you updated on more info as it rolls in.

One of the pioneer touring electronic festivals GlowFest who has had acts such as Pretty Lights, Deadmau5, Hardwell, Porter Robinson, Big Gigantic, and countless other top acts have gone under some serious changes and grown as a company. They are now called RECESS and are in their terms a “Music & Ideas Festival”. The second edition of the new event will be taking place at Michigan State University in East Lansing, Michigan on Friday April 19th, 2013. Featuring musical guests Kaskade and Project 46.
During the day RECESS is a speker series featuring an out-of-the-box progressive speaker panel during the day from 3pm – 4pm “Study Hall” (held in Business School Room N130 on Campus). Then there is “The Playground”, which is an interactive career fair at the venue from 4:30 – 6:00pm (AG Expo Field) prior to doors opening featuring 16-20 disruptive startup companies. (Video explaining Recess more below)
To end the day is the word class electronic concert they are known for at Michigan State University, where they have brought out electronic icon Kaskade and rising Canadian duo Project 46. The festival is going to be the first outdoor music festival that the campus has seen, so should get extra crazy.
It’s amazing to see electronic music spawn such a potentially impactful event, reminding me of 3LAU’s Pencils for Promise campaign.
