Pretty Lights Announces 2011 Spring Tour

Pretty Lights, never one to stay quiet for too long, is following up a massively successful year- he fulfilled the promise he made to his fans at the beginning of 2010 by delivering three new EP's, and followed that up by touring the world over, and launching Pretty Lights Music, his digital record label at the beginning of 2011.

Now he’d like to share the news of a Spring tour, taking place from late March through April, and he’s taking his production to the next level. The tour sees him taking his visually stunning live show all over the East Coast and Midwest (all dates below), and they’re going to be bigger and brighter than ever. If you haven’t caught his live show yet, don’t miss out!

On top of all this, he also found time to launch a new YouTube channel last week, featuring unreleased Pretty Lights tracks, remixes and mashups that he debuted live over the course of the past year. Head over there to check out new remixes of Pink Floyd, Jay Z, Steve Miller Band and more!

If you missed the news last week, Pretty Lights Music released two new EP’s for free downloads; Break Science’s Further Than Our Eyes Can See, and Paper Diamond’s debut EP, Levitate. The purpose of the label and its innovative model is to supply his fans, and fans of electronic music at large, with the freshest music from the hottest new underground artists.
