Derek Vincent Smith's Pretty Lights project will hit the road this summer in the company of plenty of friends. His collaborators come in two groups. First, a band: Brian Coogan, Borahm Lee, Alvin Ford Jr. and Chris Karns will join Smith onstage to help bring Pretty Lights' songs to life. Second, the shows are slated to feature a number of special guests, including Atmosphere, Maddy O'Neal, Emancipator and more. Each installment of An Episodic Festival will feature two days of performances at a single location.

The last Pretty Lights' full-length, A Color Map of the Sun, came out in 2013. But Smith's project unveiled a new single earlier this year. Listen to "Only Yesterday" below.
