Every year Life in Color starts in Miami and then travels around the world to different countries and venues.

 

There are no other concerts like this after all it is known as “The World’s Largest Paint Party”.

 

There are two types of people at the end of the concert, those who say they are going again next year and those who say it was fun but they are never going again.

 

The reason for this is that by the end of the night you are drowned in paint and since it also rained you are left soaking wet.

 

Your hair, clothes, shoes, legs, arms basically everything is completely drenched in paint and the rain did not help wash it off. It left you freezing and soaked. That does not mean it wasn’t one of the best concerts to go to.

 

If you have never gone it is definitely something to go to, it is a fun experience and the artists performing are always really good.

 

Most of the performers are DJ’s and EDC music producers but the special guest this year was Big Sean, who is a rapper who provided a break from all the “rave music” and made the concert that much more enjoyable.

 

Big Sean sang his songs from his latest album as well as the songs he sang while on tour with J.Cole earlier in the year.

 

Big Sean was one of the favorites and best of the night. He brought a change of music, instead of listening to constant DJ music he actually sang, which everyone loved.

 

Jack Ü performed and they were also really good. They seemed to have thousands of fans and the crowd went crazy during their performance.

 

There were three different stages, Raging Kingdom, Underwater Kingdom, and Sphere Kingdom. The venue also has a ferris wheel and zip lining area.

 

Raging Kingdom is where the best and more popular artists perform, the open stage has a giant lion on it which is the centerpiece for the event. This stage is where the paint is blasted more and where most people stay.

 

Underwater Kingdom is full of performers who are less popular but mixed with artists people do know, the venue is covered and it is supposed to feel like you are in an underwater cave, paint was also blasted at that stage.

 

The Sphere Kingdom has less known performers and mostly people just playing music not talking and interacting with the crowd. It is a more zen and relaxing area where there are fires and carpets.

 

People can change stages as much as they want, since it rained at one point many people went to the Underwater Kingdom being that it was the only covered area.

 

The last act of the night at the Raging Kingdom was Steve Aoki, who is one of the best music producers and DJ.

 

Every concert Steve Aoki cakes someone which is his “trademark”. People had light up posters saying “Cake Me” and such because being caked by him is a “big deal”. He literally takes a giant cake and point to someone in the crowd and throws it at them.

 

There are professional photographers who take pictures of the crowd all night and close ups of people.

 

Pictures from the photographers are supposed to be uploaded to their website the Tuesday or Wednesday after the concert. They also uploaded every single photo to Facebook.

 

A video comes out almost a month after the concert. This video contains the best moments of the concert and the people in the crowd getting blasted with paint and cake.
Overall the concert was extremely fun, it was a great experience, but sitting in a car for two hours soaking wet, drenched in paint, and freezing at twelve in the morning was definitely not fun.
