On Aug. 7, Florian Picasso announced that he would be paying tribute to his grandfather, Pablo Picasso, in an exclusive livestream performance from the Picasso Villa Californie in Cannes on Aug. 11 at 9:30 CEST. Fans can tune-in on Facebook to watch the livestream here.
Previously inhabited by the great Pablo Picasso himself, the magnificent villa is where some of the artist’s great masterpieces were created including “The Bay of Cannes” in 1958. The villa has become an ‘unparalleled place of inspiration’ to Forian Picasso who based his recording studio in the same place his grandfather used to work on his art.
To honor his artistic heritage, Florian Picasso decided to broadcast a special livestream event during the sunset along the French Riviera. The set will close with an exclusive 10 minute soundtrack exclusively produced for the performance. With villa as its backdrop, spectators will take-in breathtaking architectural projections, lighting, and pyrotechnic displays. The set will premiere new records from Florian and will end with a very special announcement that will pay tribute the historical heritage of his family.
Florian Picasso is an electronic music producer and DJ who is the grandson of the great artist, Pablo Picasso. Adopted by the Picasso family after being born in Vietnam, he has collaborated with the likes of Martin Garrix, Nicky Romero, and more.
