After taking college campuses by storm, DAYGLOW: Escape Reality Tour, the world’s largest paint party came to Philadelphia for two nights.

The show took place in the Philadelphia naval yard from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m.  Ticket prices ranged from $20-$60 and all attendees were required to be 18 or older.

DAYGLOW combines techno music, dancing, art , black lights and paint into a one of a kind show.

The line to enter the show wrapped around the building and down the block.  It was estimated that over 500 people attended the highly anticipated show.

DAYGLOW also featured aerial acts, stilt walkers, contortion acts and fire shows.

All participants were encouraged to wear clothing they did not care about due to the paint that is dropped on the crowd throughout the show.

Paint guns were stationed all over the room to shoot neon body paint at participants wherever they were standing or dancing.

The hosts of the show keep the crowd energized with techno music throughout the four hours.

According to creators, DAYGLOW is consistently breaking boundaries and rising to a new level of technology in the entertainment world.

The finale consisted with paint being dumped, lights flashing, music blaring and the crowd going wild.

It is expected that DAYGLOW will host 3D show in the future.
