Pretty Lights and Bassnectar Confirm New Year’s Shows, Joint Show at Hampton
Pretty Lights will close 2012 with a two-night run at New York’s Roseland Ballroom. The electronic star will perform at the venue—which has hosted numerous classic New Year’s Eve shows over the years—on December 30 and 31. Founders Entertainment, the people behind Governors Ball, will promote these shows. Of the shows Pretty Lights says, “Both nights will feature extended PL sets, so you’ll get hours of classics, bangers and new, unreleased tracks in a more intimate setting in one of the world’s most amazing cities. It’s going to be two extraordinarily exciting evenings of beautifully bangin’ futuristic yet retro electro hip-hop and funky ass soul music…with Pretty Lights!”
For this part, Bassnectar will celebrate New Year’s Eve at Nashville, TN’s Bridgestone Arena. The event will be a fully circular 360 event featuring Bassnectar in the center of the arena. This is the second year in a row that Bassnectar has performed in Nashville on New Year’s Eve.
In addition, on December 27 and 28 Pretty Lights and Bassnectar partner for shows at Hampton, VA’s Hampton Coliseum. Billed as BassLights, the two-night event will feature rotating headlining sets between the two electronic musicians.
