Pretty Lights—The Illumination Tour 2012


The Illumination Tour marks Pretty Lights’ first North America tour for 2012 and we can’t wait to hear the new music. Also can’t wait to see what Derek Vincent Smith (Pretty Lights) and his crew of visual artists, designers, videographers and editors have lined up for the new stage production. There’s over 50 dates from coast to coast so chances are The Illumination Tour will land somewhere near you.

There will be a limited number of pre sale tickets for fans beginning Wednesday, June 27th at 10 am here.  For the rest of the public tickets will go on sale June 29th at 10 am here.

There’s an exclusive limited edition PL Illumination Tour tee and women's tank top designed by renowned artist ISO50 (aka Tycho, aka Scott Hansen) that will only be available with an advanced ticket purchase.

Good music is good music. It doesnt matter if its a bangin dirty beat or an ambient beautiful interlude. Ive been hard at work on a new album for more than a year.  Ive completely switched up my process of producing and composing.  It is being created from all originally composed samples off of self made vinyl and all analog modular synthesis. It is and has truly been a massive undertaking, and there are many more surprises in store besides what Ive mentioned, including a mini documentary about the making of the album.  Soon people will see why Ive put so much time into this collection of music. Im bringing the true album back. Prolific, conceptual, consistent, yet extremely diverse, and a real substantial piece of music you can sink your teeth into, not a flimsy EP or an album filled with remixes.  Im talking about the real shit. Im talking about taking it to the next level and really pushing the evolution of not only electronic music but musical expression in general. The 2012 Illumination Tour will be the place to hear (and SEE) a lot of what this upcoming PL release has in store. -Derek Vincent Smith aka Pretty Lights
