We had the privilege of covering the 2018 Life is Beautiful Music & Art Festival, and immersive 3-day festival that showcases the best in music, art, taste in the streets of Downtown Las Vegas, September 21 – 23.
This year’s headliners include Florence + the Machine, CHVRCHES, SOFI TUKKER, St. Vincent, Bastille, Santigold, Cold War Kids, Foster The People, DJ Snake, Galantis, RL Grime, Odesza, musical group Jungle and more to the Life is Beautiful stages.
Life is Beautiful is rooted in positivity, unity, inspiration and empowerment. Every September, thousands of inspired “creators” from all over the world come together for the three-day festival centered in music, art, taste and ideas. Eighteen blocks in Downtown Las Vegas are transformed into an open-air art gallery and a place of discovery, cementing imagination and initiative into our DNA. That gathering, by its very nature, becomes a platform in which positivity prevails, culture and creativity thrive and transformation occurs. Now in its sixth year, Life is Beautiful Music & Art Festival (September 21-23, 2018) features marquee musicians, chefs, artists and speakers. Named “Music Festival of the Year” by Pollstar in 2017, Life is Beautiful attracted more than 175,000 attendees at last year’s sold out event. Past performers include Kanye West, Muse, J. Cole, Stevie Wonder, Foo Fighters, Major Lazer, Lionel Richie, Chance the Rapper, Gorillaz, Lorde, Blink-182 and many more, along with inspiring talks from powerful thought leaders such as Bill Nye, RuPaul and Pussy Riot. Globally recognized artists including Shepard Fairey, Banksy, Fafi and D*Face, to name a few, have permanently revolutionized the streets of Downtown Las Vegas.
