Exclusive live stream from the Picasso Villa in Cannes on August 11th
On Tuesday, August 11th, Florian Picasso will perform an exclusive live set at the Villa Californie in Cannes, previously inhabited by the great Pablo himself. Florian’s great grandfather lived and created some of his major masterpieces in the magnificent villa such as ‘The Bay of Cannes’ in 1958.
The villa is an unparalleled place of inspiration for Florian who based his main studio in the same place Pablo used to work on his art. To honor his artistic heritage and highlight the unique character of this place, Florian Picasso decided to broadcast a very special live stream.
The exceptional set will be streamed during the stunning sunset of the French Riviera. To close the show off in style, Florian has produced an exclusive soundtrack for the last 10 minutes of his set, as the facade of the villa will come to life with breath-taking architectural projections, lighting, and pyrotechnics. Florian will premiere new records and will end with a very special announcement that will rightfully pay tribute to the historical heritage of his family.
Watch the live stream here at 9:30 pm CEST on August 11th
About Florian Picasso
‘Picasso’ is no stage name; Florian is the great-grandson of the mighty Pablo, adopted by the Picasso family after being born Vietnam. He’s synonymous with a high-octane style of EDM that focuses on larger-than-life, unrelenting riffs and raw textures and is squarely focused on the dancefloor. But within that he shows an impressive range, from pacey trance bangers to phat trap style beats, rampant electro house, and gentle dancepop. Growing up between Paris, Cannes and Switzerland, Florian founds his first musical love in the form of classic hip-hop, before discovering the likes of Basement Jaxx and Groove Armada and beginning his explorations into electronic music. He began DJing ages 13 on a basic setup, learning basic scratching techniques and honing his skills for a few years before he started messing around with beats.
It’s evident from the very good company he keeps in his release schedule that he’s an artist with high standards, collaborating with artists like Martin Garrix, Nicky Romero, and more recently Gashi & Ally Brooke on ‘Like You Do’, Florian Picasso is most certainly piquing the interest of EDM’s uppermost elite.
