Preston Hoffman

Preston began his career as a graphic designer and painter, and he brings that same artistic sensibility to his lighting work. He first made his mark as a Lighting Director on tour with Further, original Grateful Dead members Phil Lesh and Bob Weir. He’s gone onto light shows for John Legend and jam-band stalwarts moe., with whom he’s been touring since 2014. In between tours, Preston has overseen the visuals for Warren Haynes’s Christmas Jam in Asheville, NC, the Electric Daisy Carnival EDM festival, the Boston Calling music festival and the 2012 U.S. Gymnastic Trials.
