LIFE IN COLOR (LIC): “The World’s Largest Paint Party,” will be expanding its Miami festival to two days this year.  It will take place on Dec. 26th-27th at Miami’s Sun Life Stadium, and will have a very special national broadcast on Fox Sports and ESPN Sports during the Manchester United and Liverpool halftime show.

LIFE IN COLOR began in 2006 and took place at different college campuses in Florida.  Its founders Sebastian Solano, Paul Campbell, Patryk Tracz and Lukasz Tracz have managed to stage over 200 annual events and have expanded to over 45 different countries.  In the past LIC has hosted huge headliners such as Diplo, A-Trak, NERVO, Sebastian Ingrosso and more.  This year, they want to change things up a little bit by painting each headliner and announcing them one by one.  Tomorrow the first headliner will be announced, none other than KASKADE.

The masterminds behind this massive paint party wanted to create something different than other events, and add art to it.  Fans who attend are not only attendees, but also in a sense, the art.  LIC not only paints its goers as well as its events, but this year will have live artist, David Garibaldi creating live art during the event, but also painting each headliner as they are announced.  First to be painted of course, is one of twleve headliners, KASKADE and in the video above you can watch a short clip of the process.

Starting October 6th David will continue to paint each of the remaining 11 headliners with his own unique short clips. “Life In Color feels like home to me,” said artist David Garibaldi. “It’s a celebration of music and color all in one. It’s why I was so excited for this project. I can’t wait for the LIC Miami festival, and to see headliners like KASKADE perform.”

Once the event is over, there will be a silent auction in which fans can win the portraits that David has painted, and all of the proceeds will go to charity.

Last year LIC Miami held over 25,000 people over one day.  This year is playing host to an expected 60,000 attendees as well as  a new record-breaking amount of paint.
