Written by Kayla Patnode. Published: September 16 2016


Life is Beautiful is a festival that takes place in Downtown Las Vegas that has something to offer for every music lover. Last year was so much fun, and we obviously can’t wait to go back! This year, the festival starts September 23 and goes through September 25 with doors opening at 2:00pm and Closing at 1:00am. To get hyped, here are the 5 things that we are looking forward to this year!


1. The Music

J. Cole AND Jimmy Eat World are both taking the stage, among others, and we are pumped! We’re getting our dancing shoes ready because we know we’ll need them! There are so many good musicians playing this year, we’re already overwhelmed with excitement!


2. The Food

Can you ever go wrong with food? No, the answer is no. The food lineup is enough to make anyone want to attend this festival. We are going to be trying everything and anything.


3. The Art

It will be nice to take a step back from the music for a minute and check out the amazing art that will be featured at the festival this year. This year, we’re excited to check out Mike Ross, whose sculptures are amazing and we can’t wait to get our eyes on them!


4. The Shopping

Good music, good food, and good shopping? Yes, please! There are little shops on Freemont Street that we are dying to go to. We are so looking forward to being able to unwind with a little retail therapy!


5. The Experience

Festivals are all about having a good time and experiencing things with others who feel the same as you. Life is Beautiful is the place to do that. The vibes from the second you get there are energizing and exhilarating and make for an experience of a lifetime!


Take a look at some of the fun from last year, including our chats with Kygo, Imagine Dragons, and Alessia Cara!
