| April 05, 2017

The Gorge Amphitheater is one of America's premier outdoor venues that should be on every concert-goers bucket list.

Just last week, the good people at The Gorge opened their doors to a new "mini-festival" thrown by none other than Pretty Lights.

This 2-day festival held on August 4th and 5th will also be accompanied by hip-hop legend Atmosphere, electronic jam band STS9, the mind-blowing Tipper, and funk superstars Lettuce.

Pretty Lights, aka Derek Vincent Smith, has hosted other 2-day mini festival events in the past in places like Telluride, CO and Nashville, TN. This event being hosted at one of the top venues in the country will be an extra special edition to his Pretty Lights Live events. 

Pretty Lights Live is a more recent project created in 2016 where producer Derek Vincent Smith joins drummer Alvin Ford Jr., keyboardist Brian Coogan, keyboardist Borahm Lee, and turntablist Chris Karns on stage for a live electronic band performance.

In addition to hosting all the top names such as Coldplay, Dave Matthews Band, Pearl Jam, and Phish, The Gorge is also home for several music festivals including The Area:One, The Sasquatch! Music Festival, Paradiso Festival, Magnifique, and more.

Located 150 miles East of Seattle, The Gorge often offers camping and is known as one of the most scenic concert venues in the world.
