Skrillex and Diplo perform as Jack U during Hangout Music Festival 2015 on May 15, 2015 in Gulf Shores, Alabama. 

The show will be the super-duo's exclusive South Florida festival engagement.

Billboard can exclusively announce that Skrillex and Diplo's Jack Ü supergroup will headline Life in Color Festival 2016 as a Southern Florida exclusive.

The exclusive nature of the performance means the duo will not reprise their star-studded headline performance at Ultra Music Festival next spring.

"We're so pumped to be bringing Jack Ü down to Miami for Life In Color Festival," says Sebastian Solano, Life in Color founder. "Every year we put in so much energy to bring what we believe is the best headliner for our Miami festival and our Miami fans, from Calvin Harris to Kaskade and now Jack Ü. We expect this one to be our best yet."

The announcement follows Life in Color's continued expansion from a Florida college paint party into an international event that stages more than 200 concerts annually.

"We are the only North American brand to have a weekly Ibiza residency, we're doing Life In Color in 40 countries this year, and on every continent," says Solano. "We're trying to break new ground in developing markets for dance music. But while all the international growth is amazing, there is nothing like being able to produce a festival for our fans in South Florida where it all started for us."

Life in Color Festival 2016 will take place January 16, 2016 at Miami's Sun Life Stadium. Tickets are on-sale here now.
