Phase one of the Life In Color world tour was recently announced and it’s shaping up to be a massive hit. Various dates will feature various artists with the first date in East Lansing, Michigan being headlined by producer/DJ/performer, Diplo. Dillon Francis, Bingo Players, Party Favor, Flosstradamus, David Solano and DVBBS are also expected to perform at shows during various stages of the tour.
The tour has been dubbed Big Bang: The Creation Of Color and will officially kick off in just a few days on the 17th of January 2015. Dates as far as May 2015 have been announced and more will be announced later on. More than 130 cities in 50 countries are expected to be covered in the course of this year’s tour. The USA, Brazil, Argentina, Chile and Puerto Rico are among the countries which have been announced thus far with more to be announced over the course of time. Europe and Asia are also on the itinerary but countries from within those regions are yet to be named. Australia will also host the event.
The groundbreaking “Paint Factory” stage structure will also be showcased during the tour, and this in particular has been a talking point for a lot of fans who are anticipating seeing the structure in the flesh. Sebastian Solano, the founder of Life In Color, is ambitious about the project and mentioned that he’d like to see the event sell a million tickets by 2016 according to an interview with BillBoard. Last year’s edition sold more than 600,000 tickets.
When asked why the tour has gone global Solano replied “I think after we conquered the college market, we realized we could create a lot more with this concept. We knew LIC was bigger than just a college event and our team was capable of taking this brand worldwide. We decided to scale down on the amount of college events and focus more on the bigger shows. We switched our focus from doing college shows to doing both college markets and all the major cities in America. We grew our events not only in attendance but also in production quality and talent booked. We also invested over seven figures in R&D to develop new paint shooting technology and grow our show from a paint party to a full-scale spectacle that is now talked about in the same sentence as the biggest EDM brands in the world.”
The show is often produced in various cities concurrently, that’s how the LIC team manages to play so many shows each year.
