Life in Color Festival on "Growing From the Bottom Up"

In Life's Little Instruction Book, H. Jackson Brown Jr. famously wrote: "An overnight success takes about 15 years."

If that's the case, Life in Color is way ahead of schedule.

Over the course of just seven years, this crew of Miami-based paint party professionals has fought, struggled, and lost a lot of sleep. But the rewards have been great. So far, founders Paul Campbell, Sebastian Solano, Lukasz Tracz, and Patryk Tracz have brought EDM to the collegiate masses, earned the backing of a powerful millionaire, and took their show to four continents.

Now the LIC guys are celebrating the only way they know how, by pushing even further and giving their hometown the first-ever Life in Color Festival.
