The recipient of Pollstar‘s 2017 “Music Festival of the Year” award returns to Downtown Las Vegas for its fifth year of music, comedy, food and art. Life is Beautiful lands on the third weekend in September and, as always, will bring together an eclectic mix of artists with more than 180,000 people joining in on the fun. Every year they present attendees with a wide array of musical genres and give listeners a plethora of choices to select from, ranging anywhere from Hip Hop and R&B to Electronic and Indie music. For three days, festival goers will be immersed in a world dedicated to the senses.
The headliners listed on 2018’s stacked lineup include artists who have been making a lot of noise this year in their respective genres. Included amongst the list of headliners are The Weeknd, Travis Scott, and Florence + The Machine.
The Weeknd has been making a splash in the music industry for a number of years now, however it can be said that 2018 is definitely a notable year him. It is hard to imagine how he has been able to catch his breathe, what with the announcement and release of his new merchandise line, the release of his comic book, and of course headlining Weekend One of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. What is even more impressive about The Weeknd’s headlining spot this year, is that he also played Life Is Beautiful in 2015 but not as a headliner. With a roster as impressive as his though, it is no wonder why he will be headlining the festival this year.
Travis Scott is another notable name that will be headlining. This year, Life Is Beautiful falls shortly after the release of Travis Scott’s anticipated album ‘Astroworld‘. As they did during his Hard Summer headlining set, there is no doubt that fans will swarm to the stage for his performance in Las Vegas. Florence + The Machine will also be headlining this year, an impressive feat considering it will be their first time ever playing at Life Is Beautiful. This group, which started in 2007, has captured the attention of audiences around the world with their unique sound and the powerful vocals of lead singer Florence Welch. With no shortage of hits, it can be certain that they will captivate their audience in September as well.
With a lineup like the one here, attendees will surely have a hard time deciding who they want to see. Other notable artists this year include, but are not limited to, Odesza, Tyler, The Creator, RL Grime, Sylvan Esso, and many many more. Life Is Beautiful offers every music lover in attendance with a substantial amount of options. And if all the music options weren’t enough, those in attendance can also take a break from the music to enjoy art installations, some comedy, or chow down on a variety of delicious foods.
The variety this festival offers its guests, along with the outstanding amount of talent, makes it no wonder why Life Is Beautiful is now an award winning festival that continues to draw in more and more people every year.
