Colour-themed events have been taking our island by storm recently. Life in Color, happening in Privilege every Wednesday from June 17 to September 9, is not just another representative of the popular cohort, but officially the world’s largest paint party that without any doubt had to land in one of the island’s superclubs. The main room of Privilege definitely suits it the best: its generous size accommodates all the numerous fans of the brand, and the huge stage is just spot-on for all kinds of shows and performances there are in store. Besides, from this very stage it’s so convenient to pour the bright paint on the ecstatic crowd!

We visited Life in Color last Tuesday and can confirm that the line-up was built so as to keep things as diverse as possible. First it was David Heartbreak who opened the night, then the blonde duo of Posso picked up the baton – there is hardly anything more eye-catching in party world than two twin-looking beauties spinning and dancing at the same time. At half past one Katia Aveiro appeared on stage and started her live performance with her own cover of ‘I Follow You’ by Lykke Li – the song bound to be one of the eternal anthems of Ibiza. When it seemed that no one ever would be able to surpass the appeal of Katia’s powerful voice and the bursting energy of her gorgeous dancers, Diego Miranda and WAO proved the reverse by grabbing the mic and jumping on the decks. That was the time when the first streams of paint came into play, dispersed from the stage through a hose – just to try and tease, saving the main avalanche for later.

Don’t think there would be a few little drops – clouds of bright multi-coloured paint were enough to fill nearly all the huge space of Privilege! This club has seen it all – large-scale shows, high-tech lasers, amazing video installations, but paint is something seriously next level. As simple, brilliant and genuine as it can be, and highly impressive. The peak time was soundtracked by Carnage and Borgore, and the honour to close the night was given to Jack Eye Jones. The average length of a set was around 50 minutes, which let every artist showcase the best of his or her skills and at the same time keep the audience constantly focused and entertained. Life in Color turned out to be one of those rare parties that takes off pretty early, at around 1am, and stays full and active nearly till the end. Such a treat for the adherents of big room house!

With just three installments of Life in Color left ahead in the calendar, don’t lose any time and make it your choice on Wednesday night. Next week it will be headlined by R3hab and Cedric Gervais with the support of David Heartbreak, WAO and Diego Miranda, on September 2 – by Chuckie and DVBBS, supported by Eyes of Providence and the same team of Cedric Gervais, WAO and Diego Miranda again. The closing on September 9 will of course be the most epic night of the season, but its line-up, as is often the case, is kept secret in order not to ease the tension prematurely. Since the event is highly popular, be ready to arrive a bit in advance so as not to miss anything – and yes, there will be a queue on the entrance, deservedly.
