Life is Beautiful combines the best of music, art, and immersive programming. Here’s how to make the most of your time at the festival!
For more than a decade, Life is Beautiful has brought people together in Downtown Las Vegas for three days over artistic expression, learning, and love of music. This year, the festival returns from September 22-24 with a lineup featuring some of the biggest names in music, including Kendrick Lamar, The 1975, ODESZA, and Flume. Electronic music fans can expect to catch sets from John Summit, Madeon, Snakehips, Ben Böhmer, Anna Lunoe, and many others.
Each year sees Life is Beautiful up the ante, impressing fans with its roster. The magic of the festival extends beyond the incredible music, though. The grounds transform into a larger-than-life art gallery showcasing local Las Vegas artists and festival favorites from around the world. This year, 30 talented artists — even one only six years old — will pay homage to 11 years of Life is Beautiful with colorful murals, mixed-material installations, and digital art pieces. Everywhere you turn, you can take in the captivating sights curated just for the festival.
Things get even more whimsical as attendees escape into Meow Wolf’s Party in The SubOrbs.
Step into this immersive, new experience where the best of Meow Wolf‘s creativity comes to life. Feast your eyes on larger-than-life art in this city-within-the-festival. Each day will feature programming from explosive performance troupe Molodi, the dramatic Majestic Repertory Theatre, the funky vibes of The Great Bingo Revival, and even surprise DJ sets. Meow Wolf has become widely known for their experiences, and we can’t wait to see how The SubOrbs take shape this year!
When hunger hits, turn to your inner foodie and take advantage of the culinary offerings at Life is Beautiful. Las Vegas is a hub for some of the best food and drink, so attendees can expect top-tier options from local restaurants and vendors. Take a slice of some Las Vegas favorites at The Pizzeria, sip on some artisanal cocktails, or explore the countless dining options throughout the festival. You can even elevate your experience with exclusive tasting menus from famed chefs.
You won’t run out of things to explore between sets with all of the art and culinary experiences. If you’re looking to shop and take home a souvenir from this year’s festivities, however, look no further than the Market in the Alley. It featuring local makers, artisans, and creators, so attendees can shop small and peruse unique offerings. Whether you’re into jewelry, clothing, wellness products, or art, the Market has it in store.
Life is Beautiful is less than two weeks away! We were already stoked about the lineup but cannot wait to explore the festival grounds and be surrounded by this gathering’s magic once again. We highly recommend taking the time to engage with the art, dive headfirst into the immersive experiences, and really take in everything Life is Beautiful has to offer. No matter which path you choose for your weekend adventure, you can’t go wrong.
