After releasing a cryptic video with dates and vague locations last week, Pretty Lights continues to roll out tour date announcements for what is being dubbed the PL Festival. This week, we’ve been treated with new pieces to the puzzle, with Monday releasing early August dates at the Bank Of New Hampshire Pavilion, Tuesday detailing mid-August plans at Red Rocks Amphitheatre, and today confirming a third weekend in Telluride, CO.Set to take place August 26 & 27 at the beloved Telluride Town Park, the weekend is specified to only contain Pretty Lights, with special guests “The Pretty Lights Family.” Unlike the previously announced weekends, this one has no support listed at this time. In any event, we look forward to an intimate weekend, or “evenings with,” Pretty Lights and the band he’s organized for the tour, featuring Alvin Ford Jr., Brian Coogan, Chris Karns, and Borahm Lee. Check out what happened last time they were all together in Telluride in this video of “Only Yesterday.”Watch the third out of five announcement videos below:Tickets currently on-sale now.
