Back in August of last year, electronic icon Derek Vincent Smith of Pretty Lights landed in Colorado’s gorgeous Telluride Town Park for a two-day festival all his own. Fans gathered within the area’s lush valley surrounded by towering mountain ranges for an unforgettable music experience, the first of its kind. He even debuted some new music for the first time after years of silence… enjoy here.
Now, eight months later, the attendees and those of us unable to make it out alike are finally able to relive the festivities. In a Youtube playlist of 13 videos, live recordings taken from the weekend’s proceedings are matched with grainy, ethereal video clips of the crowd, nearby town and performance. The result is a nostalgic and beautiful collection of memories, expertly blended into an immersive and tearful spectacle.
“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 were an awesome and historic opportunity to experience a live Pretty Lights show in what may be the perfect venue.” – Smith
