Life is Beautiful Official Daytime Pool Party Series

Life is Beautiful festival weekend just got more beautiful. This year, you can
enjoy more than 39 hours of festival fun. Before festival doors open, attendees
can start the party early at the Official Daytime Pool Parties at Citrus Grand
Pool Deck Friday – Sunday. Take a look into each of the Daytime Pool Party
artists below.

Cold War Kids

You’ll recognize them by their hits “First” and “So Tied Up” (featuring Bishop
Briggs). Cold War Kids began in 2004 with four guys jamming out to classics
by Bob Dylan, Billie Holiday and The Velvet Underground. Within a year of its
founding, the band put together their debut EP Mulperry Street, which
garnered a lot of buzz among music bloggers.

The band landed its first record deal in 2006 with the album Robbers &
Cowards, peaking U.S. charts at a mere 173. Just two years later, their
second album Loyalty to Loyalty made the band a household name by
peaking the U.S. charts at 21. Since then, Cold War Kids has released four
additional albums and the song “First” landed the number one spot on the
Billboard Hot 100.

Take a listen to their biggest hit off their 2017 album L.A. Divine.

Sir Sly

Formed by vocalist Landon Jacobs with instrumentalists Jason Suwito and
Hayden Coplen accompanying him, Sir Sly is an Indie Rock band out of So. Cal.
The musical group worked hard to build a following online and shortly after
forming topped the Hype Machine chart. Their second single “Gold”, released in
May 2013, made it on both Billboard Alternative Songs Chart and the Rock
Airplay Chart, and was even featured on a Cadillac commercial.

It wasn’t until their second album Don’t You Worry, Honey was released in June
2017 that the band begin getting momentum in the music industry. Songs “High”
and “&Run” off the album peaked at number three on the Billboard Hot 100. The
single “High” was also featured on an episode of 13 Reasons Why and used
during the closing credits for Happy Death Day.

British musician Alexander Kotz first entered the music scene as solo artist
Elderbrook just three years ago. Before branching out on his own, Kotz was a
member of an Indie Rock Band as both guitarist and singer/songwriter. He left
the Indie band to explore hip-hop music, then finally discovered his niche as an
Electronic Producer. Elderbrook’s first EP How Many Times was released in mid-
2015; MixMag, a British electronic and clubbing magazine, named How Many
Times as one of the Top Tracks of 2015. He blew up in the British music scene in 2017 after
collaboration with CamelPhat. Their collaboration entitled Cola went on to become one of the
biggest selling songs of 2017.

Elderbrook is recognized as a multi-instrumentalist. The artist is trained in classical piano and
guitar, allowing him to stand out among other Electronic Producers. When creating a song,
Elderbrook takes influences from every genre of music – from country to gospel and everything
in between.
