Pretty Lights to stream NYE weekend shows in support of hurricane relief in Puerto Rico
Back in April, Pretty Lights announced an immersive offshore festival by the name of Island of Light. Come October, however, the event was cancelled due to the destruction caused by Hurricane Maria that devastated the island in September.
In an effort of goodwill, Pretty Lights — aka Derek Vincent Smith — will be streaming his sets for free on December 28-29 at The Fillmore in Detroit, MI (10:15pm ET) and on December 31 at The Fillmore in Philadelphia, PA (10:05pm ET) on the Pretty Lights Facebook page and the Pretty Lights YouTube Channel. A donate option will be available on both streams, with proceeds going to United for Puerto Rico.
Earlier this fall, Pretty Lights Live ran a similar campaign for their Whitewater Amphitheater performance in New Braunfels, TX (September 29–30). That campaign generated an estimated $55,238 from donors.
