The world's largest paint party is coming to Johannesburg!

Cape Town - Life In Colour is the world's largest paint party and it’s coming to Johannesburg in September 2015.

Life In Colour infuses electronic music's top DJs, world class production, unique and stunning character performers, and a custom built paint delivery system. A countdown to the paint blast creates one of the most high energy and unforgettable experiences in the entertainment industry.


In 2013, the tour reached over 25 countries, with a plan to expand the following year. At that point, headlining DJs had included Afrojack, Axwell. Alleso, Benny Benassi, Chuckie, R3hab, etc.

Regular features in shows beyond paint blasts included aerial acts, stilt walkers, contortionists, and fire shows. In 2013, Life in Colour began to hold larger music festival events, featuring multiple stages and a larger line-up.

In 2014, Life In Colour festival was expanded to two days and received a total attendance of 60 000.

The event was headlined by Adventure Club, Borgore, The Chainsmokers, Diplo, Kaskade, Nervo and Madeon, among others, and also featured an attempt to set a Guinness World Record for the 'Most people covered in paint at one time'.

On Saturday 5 September the JHB Expo Centre, Nasrec, will be transformed into a paint and musical paradise.
