The Life is Beautiful Festival in Downtown Las Vegas

Life is Beautiful is a multiday, multi-genre festival of live music, comedy, and other performances as well as art and cuisine, all threaded through with a strong spirit of community togetherness and connection.

It began in 2013, and the participation at that first Life is Beautiful run-through of such top-draw performers as Childish Gambino, Beck, and Kings of Leon established a high standard for shows the event has certainly managed to maintain in subsequent years. The 2019 headliners, for example, include Chance the Rapper, Post Malone, Billie Eilish, the Black Keys, Lil Wayne, and Vampire Weekend.

Meanwhile there’ll be live comedy courtesy of Jonathan Van Ness and Desus and Mero as well as an appearance by the hosts of Pod Save America, a smash-hit political podcast.

Throw in 70-plus local eateries, bars, food trucks, and culinary artisans supplying the grub and a plethora of inspiring art, and you’ve got a tremendously good time on tap for the weekend of September 20th.

During each of the festival’s three days, the grounds are open from 2 PM to 1 AM, with entrances at Fremont and 7th and Fremont and 11th.
