Nothing Says ‘Merry Christmas’ Like 7,000 Lights, Sync’d To Dubstep

The Johnson Light Show is a dubstep-themed Christmas light show, created by Matt Johnson of San Antonio, TX.

Here’s what they have to say about it:

Started in 2013, our show is not your traditional light show! There are no inflatables, characters, blow molds, or other “traditional” elements.

Even the music is not traditional Christmas music; it is a custom sound track composed of Dubstep, EDM, hip hop, movie clips and even our children! The result is an exciting show that feels like a dance party!

Even the lights are not traditional, we use Pixels which are similar to what you would see in a stadium Jumbotron. Each pixel can be controlled individually and set to any color and intensity. This means many more effects than what can be done with Christmas lights!

The show embodies the spirit of DIY and cutting edge technology with all custom built elements, kit based controllers, and both custom and open source software.

  1. I hate to be “that guy,” but…. do we know for sure this wasn’t faked? I didn’t see any trees sway in the wind, the camera was rock-solid, no cars or people going by. The lights were a little too perfect for me to take it at face value.
