There will be "more paint!"
Just 12 days ago, Life in Color announced its first-ever music festival at Miami's Sun Life Stadium with an all-out (though curiously paint-free) volley of rave robots, party lazers, and DJ R3hab during the Guinness International Champions Cup final between Chelsea and Real Madrid.
"In 2007, a phenomenon was born," the LIC narrator told soccer (and dance?) fans. And now it's morphed into an stadium-sized explosion of EDM-themed liquid fun.
Starting today, all 16-and-up beat freaks with a penchant for getting splattered with paint in public can finally purchase early-bird tickets for just $54.99.
And yes, this is a deal. Because as Life in Color exclaims: "Miami, prepare for the largest show in LIC history with multiple stages, larger production, and more paint than ever!"
Plus, LIC fest tix will soon leap to $79.99 before spiking into the three-figure range.
But while you're contemplating whether "VIP Exclusive Balcony" access, a "VIP bag," and "VIP Express Entry" is worth $199 plus fees and taxes ... Just imagine the epicness of Life in Color 3D technology under an open sky in an NFL football field!
Oh, and let's not forget all the party pros who've previously headlined LIC, like R3hab, Diplo, Benny Benassi, Laidback Luke, A-Trak, Porter Robinson, Roger Sanchez, Robbie Rivera, Funkagenda, Joachim Garraud, Feed Me, Alex Gaudino, Funkerman, Starkillers, Austin Leeds, Oscar G, resident David Solano, and lots of other neon-soaked dance megastars.
So don't wonder whether this mass EDM gathering, long billed as "The World's Biggest Paint Party," can possibly get any sloppier, wetter, wilder, because the answer is a ecstatic yessssss.
