Behold: The Ultimate Makeup Fest For Fyre Fest? Thanks Pretty Lights


Derek Vincent Smith (aka Pretty Lights) has been up to something. Although, it’s safe to ask the question,

When is he not?

Between the cryptic release of short snippet videos on the artist’s Instagram and the subsequent release of Pretty Lights Live Flips earlier this year, here’s something even bigger…

A mother. fucking. festival.

Curated entirely by the man behind Pretty Lights himself. You better believe he’ll be performing live too. Expect nothing but a beautiful time at the inaugural Island of Light Festival at the Waldorf Astoria Resort, located in Fajardo, Puerto Rico, December 7-10, 2017.

Between the sandy beaches of Puerto Rico, a private island that’ll boat you to and from (this ain’t no Fyre Festival), to daytime poolside sets, and a late night ballroom experience, the Inaugural Island of Light Festival has the potential to be the new electronic music lover paradise.

Additional world-class art installations, award-winning pools, high-end on site restaurants, and of course a gorgeous Atlantic Ocean engulfed beach on the island can also be expected.

Guests at the festival will receive an all-inclusive resort experience upon ticket purchase, set to include lodging, a ticket, buffet style meal options, unlimited drinks, and ground transportation between the San Juan airport and El Conquistador. As if things couldn’t get any easier, guests will also receive discounted rates on adventure excursions, resort amenity access and easy access to the high end sit down restaurants on site.

Sound familiar?

With festival producer Silver Wrapper (who also puts on the successful North Coast Music Festival and Suwannee Halloween) handling the logistics, we’re confident this one won’t crash and burn..


Is Pretty Lights’ New “Island of Light” festival the luxury redemption destination for Fyre Fest or nah?
