In the last year, the Dayglow paint party concept has grown from a staple student party to the international phenomenon we now know as Life in Color. Since its humble inception in 2006 at colleges around Florida, Life in Color has experienced exponential market dominance as the paint party took its talents to global metropolises such as Cancun, Melbourne and London. But the folks at host company Committee Entertainment will never forget their roots, as evidenced by Life in Color’s triumphant return to its hometown of Miami last Friday.

Marquee Nightclub New Year’s Eve Weekend
Last month, we told our readers about the EDM revolution starting to take place thanks to music mogul Robert Sillerman and his big-picture thinking. The astute businessman, who made his millions by merging regional concert promoters to create Live Nation, has taken his talents to the electronic music realm and is
using the same successful model. His early August acquisition of “Life in Color” (formerly known as Dayglow) has helped steer the world’s largest paint party into the fast lane towards an incredibly bright future.
Once a standard college soiree with basic paint splatters and decent musical talent put on by Committee Entertainment, Dayglow served its purpose of entertaining attendees for a night of color-splashing on the dance-floor. But six years later and a new monkier, the event has grown into a world-wide phenomenon that attracts more than 500,000 people per year. With the most sought after DJs in the industry behind the decks and intensely high theatrical production, Life in Color has transformed into a highly in demand electronic event and, with the help of Sillerman, will only continue to flourish.

Governor’s Island, a short ferry ride off the tip of New York City, has only recently turned into one of the biggest EDM hotspots of the Northeast. This summer’s lineup has dramatically increased and improved upon last year's. There were bigger names, a stronger setup, and even more shows. Governor's Island has already seen such stars as Benny Benassi, Laidback Luke, Dash Berlin, and Alesso this summer. Additionally, Thomas Gold and Gareth Emrey will be also be headed to the once abandoned island in the coming months.
Robbie Rivera needs no introduction. With more than 25 years of electronic production and an extensive roster of hits in his arsenal, the Puerto Rican DJ has won the adoration of fans across the globe. Fusing Latin underbellies with old school beats, Rivera has cultivated a uniquely powerful sound that melts hearts and explodes dance floors.
The Miami-based producer is known for his iconic, all-day concert “Juicy Beach” that takes place annually at Nikki Beach. This July, Rivera will take his notorious party to Governors Island with “Juicy New York,” bringing South Beach’s sunshine, wild vibe all the way to the big apple. Rivera will be joined on stage by openers EDX, Manuel De La Mare, Paige, Stefano Noferini and Sultan + Ned Shepard.
The world’s largest paint party is back and better than ever! Dayglow will return to the big apple July 15 for another night of glow-in-the-dark musical mayhem.
After Benny Benassi and Alesso tore the stage apart at Pier 94 on New Years Day, Dayglow has built a strong following of New York fans who are sure to rage until the sun comes up for this summer session.
This time, Brooklyn will welcome in the painted partiers to the BK Festival Grounds on Stillwell Avenue. Dayglow hasn’t announced its headliners yet, but Chuckie has been tweeting a few hints about the show - “Dayglow party in NYC?! Count me in…” With or without the dirty dutch DJ, Committee Entertainment is sure to bring out a star-studded lineup for this always stellar concert.
Ten miles of darkness and 2000 cars separated us from the festival we had only dreamt about. As we stared forward, excited and anxious, there was a faint flicker towards the sky and then the familiar explosion of fireworks in the distance. A roar ripped through the desert from the cars around us. Indian chiefs and their topless girlfriends yelled and cheered out their windows, as packs of neon spattered fur boots ran by on foot. This was the scene I had heard so much about. The one that would save dance music events
Insomniac’s Electric Daisy Carnival has consistently been remarked as the premier Electronic Music festival in the country. With steady competition from Ultra Music Festival , and the multitude of other events that have developed in the past few years, claiming that title is quite a feat. Insomniac’s founder, Pasquale Rotella, has rose through the ranks of California promoters to a point of utmost success. He has absolutely earned his stripes, with the immense scale of his events and consequences this sometimes brings. The risk involved with such massive gatherings as these has made it necessary for Pasquale to impose a new standard for safety at these events, both at the gates and in the festival. In both appearance and functionality, EDC proved to be nothing less than the world-class event that was beckoned for.
Benny Benassi, Italian DJ/producer of legend, penned what must be the most recognizable dance track of the past ten years. Don't believe me? Here:
See? Anyway, y'all probably knew that already. Since then, Benassi has been hard at work, delivering club anthems for more than a decade. Winning a Grammy for his remix of Public Enemy's "Bring The Noise," Benassi has enjoyed critical success as well as the utter and unflinching devotion of his fans. He is constantly touring the world, playing the biggest festivals and most popular clubs in cities from NY to Milan, Tokyo to Moscow.
