2 Chainz Announced as "Final Headliner" for Life in Color Festival in Miami

As a certain world-class party boy might ask: "Where U Been?"

For the last two weeks, Life in Color, AKA "The World's Biggest Paint Party!," has been teasing beat freaks and goop junkies with a sloooooow reveal of the 15-act lineup for its first-ever festival at Sun Life Stadium in Miami.

Calvin Harris! Steve Aoki! Major Lazer! Eleven other ragers! And now the "final headliner"!

"We are so excited," cofounder Lukasz Tracz says in today's official announcement, "to bring an artist like 2 Chainz to our Life in Color Festival."

Now obviously, since we're talking about Life in Color, there will be paint! And paint! And paint! And moar paint!

But festival reps are also planning "an electronic dance playground featuring an impressive light show, eccentric aerial acts, pyrotechnics and multiple stages."

It's going to be, according to cofounder Tracz, "the WILDEST, CAKE-THROWING, BUBBLE BUTT-TWERKING end-of-the-year party."

Oh, and if the Life in Color fest's latest flyer is any kind of special clue, watch for neon-splattered downtown Miami buildings to be wearing giant replicas of this final headliner's signature, namesake neckwear.

To paraphrase Mr. Chainz: Truuu! Gooop!
