PRETTY LIGHTS (US)
Saturday 07.07.12 - 02:30 - Apollo
We have a treat for fans of brostep, mashup, glitchhop – or the musical language-impaired who simply needs a ride in the genre carousel where the mirror ball is always spinning and the seasick hip hop beats just continue.
Pretty Lights make the dance floor sizzle with his visuals-marinated shows where Derek Vincent Smith from his laptop creates a psychedelic party full of 2012 sensation, acidy cut-ups, recycled chorus fragments, mutated dubstep and lazer-cut beats.
Following the tradition of DJ Shadow, Pretty Lights shows how to steal left, right and centre while still mixing his own, radioactively luminous brew.

Band schedule is ready in May
Roskilde Festival releases the time schedule in May, if everything works out at least somewhat according to plan.
We don’t do it until then to make the best schedule possible for our audience. When we, for various reasons, are forced to make changes late in the process, we have a better chance at putting together a programme that considers both the spreading of genres, the performer's touring plans and safety at the festival.
