In Living Color

The world's largest paint party stops by The Aragon

Full_paint_2

It’s one thing to rage to EDM amidst hallucinogenic visuals, fire dancers, and aerialists hanging from the stage in neon hula hoops.
 
It’s quite another to do it while being blasted in the face with paint.
 
So goes the show at next month’s Life In Color, as the world’s largest paint party stops by the Aragon on its international tour of insanity.
 
Hitting up 49 cities this fall from Melbourne to San Juan, what began on the college campuses of Florida has turned into the craziest dance party this side of Electric Daisy Carnival.
 

Navigate your way through stilt walkers, contortionists, and 30-foot human butterflies while paint cannons explode from the stage to drench the crowd in neon.
 
The DJs soundtracking this freakshow rotate from city to city, with the Chicago event featuring Serbian/Australian superstar Dirty South and Miami-based up-and-comer Henrix.
 
But none of that really seems to matter that much when massive robots in light-up suits are spraying you down with a massive fire hose of brightly-colored paint.
 
If this is painting, sign us up for art class.
