The Life in Color Festival, billed as “the world’s largest paint party,” returns to its roots here in Florida after touring the world in such exotic locales as Rotterdam, Jakarta, and Lima (and that’s just in the past month alone!).
The event, which started on Florida college campuses as DAYGLOW back in 2006, has grown into a worldwide event with parties in dozens of cities on four continents. Miami’s Life in Color Festival will be held across two days: Friday, December 26 and Saturday, December 27. This is the first Life in Color event in history to last two separate days. 60,000 people are ready to party the weekend away at Sun Life Stadium (347 Don Shula Dr., Miami Gardens).
Life in Color is a festival that brings people who love hi-NRG dance music together in the spirit of fun, creativity, and paint. The headliners this year are Kaskade, Diplo, and Juicy J. Kaskade (Ryan Raddon) is a DJ and producer, and one of the most respected names in electronic music today. He has won the “America’s Best DJ” award by DJ Times twice. His two most recent albums went to #1 on the Billboard dance charts and made it into the top 20 on the Billboard 200 as well. Diplo (Thomas Wesley Pentz) is a Miami native and a graduate of the University of Central Florida. He is a DJ and record producer, who manages the label Mad Decent Records. His rise to fame coincided with his work with musician M.I.A. and their work on the Jamaican dancehall music project “Major Lazer.” Recently he has worked with Madonna on a few tracks from her upcoming album. Juicy J is a rapper who is well-known for being a part of the group Three 6 Mafia. With Wiz Khalifa, he part-owns the label Taylor Gang Records and also works with Columbia Records. He was prominently featured in Katy Perry’s 2013 single “Dark Horse.”
Other DJs and performing artists who will be part of the Life in Color Festival include Borgore, Nervo, Chainsmokers, Madeon, Tur, Carnage, Bingo Players, Adventure Club, Borgeous, Dvbbs, Head Hunterz, Deorro, and many more.
