In the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, Life Is Beautiful has announced that they’ll be taking the year off and focusing on a return in 2021.
Since its inception, Life Is Beautiful has grown to become one of the most diverse festivals in North America. Known for its jampacked lineup, stunning art installations, and easily accessible location in Downtown Las Vegas, it has proved to be an amazing experience for all who choose to attend.
But this year’s edition of Life Is Beautiful will not take place as Las Vegas and the rest of the world continues to grapple with the coronavirus pandemic. The latest festival to announce they’re postponement until 2021, they join Mysteryland, Electric Forest, and Shambhala who also broke the news just hours ago that they’d be looking towards the new year as well.

Instead, this moment has given us the opportunity to pause and assess what is truly important. It has given us the space to reflect and to grow, to refocus on our work, and to find new ways to give back to our community beyond the three days of the festival. Our hearts are heavy, but our resilience is unstoppable.”
