Held annually on the downtown streets of Las Vegas, the Life is Beautiful Music & Art Festival will return for its fifth year September 22-24, 2017. Organizers officially revealed their star-studded lineup on April 25, making the case for the Life is Beautiful as one of the year’s most anticipated, multi-faceted fall events.
Headliners include Chance The Rapper, Muse, Gorillaz, Lorde, The XX, Kaskade, Wiz Khalifa, and Pretty Lights. The musical portion of the festival also features over 60 acts of incredible talent stretching across all genres of music. Other notable dance music acts include Tycho, Tchami, Deorro, RAC, Tokimonsta, Zeds Dead, Big Gigantic, Troy Boi, Big Wild, and Ekali.
The fun doesn’t stop at the eclectic musical line-up, either — given how festival organizers imagined Life is Beautiful as a multi-faceted event featuring live culinary, art, comedy, and learning demonstrations. Bill Nye “the Science Guy” returns after his wildly popular 2015 “Ideas Series.” The comedy showcase features performances by top comedians, including Matthew Broussard, Mike Lawrence, and Ryan O’Flanagan.
The festival also brings back the Art Motel installation, which will be re-imagined by Santa Fe’s immersive art collective, Meow Wolf. Returning for the second year is “Crime on Canvas,” an exhibition of original artwork by prominent local, national and international artists, including Matt Skiba, Mark Ryden, Tara McPherson, Brandon Boyd and many more.
A limited amount of advance three-day passes will be on sale beginning this Thursday, April 27.
