Life is Beautiful Festival is making its way to Downtown Las Vegas for its fourth edition, and as the years have gone on the lineup has become one of the most musically diverse ones of the festival season. With headliners such as Flume, G-Eazy, J. Cole, Mumford & Sons, and Empire of the Sun Life is Beautiful is over flowing with amazing music, and here are five that have us really excited to spend September 23rd-25th in Las Vegas.
Autograf is comprised of three talented guys from Chicago and their brand of Future/Tropical House has quickly made them a must see at any festival line up; so it’s no wonder they make this list. With plenty of originals like “Don’t Worry” and remixes of Odesza, Stevie Wonder, and Marvin Gaye, Autograf turns any crowd into a hyped dance party faster than you can say “this is lit fam”
UK producer and Coachella legend Duke Dumont burst onto the scene with his number 1 hit in 2013 “Need U (100%)” and then never looked back with successful hit after hit including the tropical house anthem “I Got U” and the epic “Ocean Drive”. With the release of the Blasé Boys Club in 2015 Duke Dumont has established himself as a mainstay in the world of house music.
There is absolutely nothing on this earth…correction nothing in the universe like the music of Gramatik. Slovenian born multitalented producer Gramatik combines elements of hip hop, jazz, and electronic music for a passionate in your face blend of live instruments with an electronic fusion that can only be explained by just taking a listen. With the latest release of his new album Epigram, Gramatik is definitely my choice for can’t miss artist of the weekend, and you never know which one of his saxophone wielding friends might show up to play along.
Following the theme of combining electronic and live music is the Canadian duo of Bob Moses. After forming in 2012 Bob Moses has been fast at work establishing themselves and their music as one of the most progressive and interesting music acts out there. By taking house and spinning on its head Bob Moses has quickly gathered many followers and has been coined by few as the future of music. And while the future may be a ways away we are lucky enough to have the sultry sounds of Bob Moses now.
One of the most unique acts in electronic music has to be Kaytranada. By combining electronic music with R&B and Hip Hop Kaytranada brings huge amount of energy not only to his music but his live sets as well. With intense dance beats and powerful lyrics Kaytranada leaves his crowds out of breathe as he pulls them through his personal musical adventure. With such a diverse style of music, there is no way to tell which way a Kaytranada set will go, but it’s guaranteed to be a great time.
