Pretty Lights has announced that Island of Light, a destination festival scheduled for December of this year in Puerto Rico, has been canceled. In a statement released earlier today, the festival and Pretty Lights stated that they’ve made the decision to cancel it and full refunds will be issued.
The decision was made after assessing the damage caused by Hurricanes Irma and Maria that recently passed through Puerto Rico. These hurricanes had a devastating effect on the island, and after receiving an official report from the El Conquistador Resort, where the festival was going to be held, it was decided that Island of Light was to be canceled.
Silver Wrapper and Pretty Lights are working on rescheduling the event for next year, but in the meantime they’ve asked their patrons and fans to donate to Puerto Rico. They’re donating to United for Puerto Rico, and will be holding benefit events in both Chicago and Denver. Read the full statement put forth by Island of Light and Pretty Lights here.
