After selling out their festival for the first time last year, the Life is Beautiful 2018 lineup is here!
The staple of downtown Las Vegas that has taken place every year since 2013, the sixth-year’s festival is headlined by The Weeknd, Arcade Fire, and Florence + The Machine. This year’s festival will take place Friday, September 21 until Sunday, September 23.
Other standout names on this year’s bill include ODESZA, Justice, Travis Scott, DJ Snake, N.E.R.D., Death Cab for Cutie, Tyler the Creator, Jungle, CHVRCHES, St. Vincent, Foster the People, Galantis, Miguel, BASTILLE, Cold War Kids, Santigold, Sylvan Esso, A$AP Ferg, The Neighbourhood, GoldLink, Alison Wonderland, Daniel Caesar, SOFI TUKKER, Blood Orange, Wolfmother, Cashmere Cat and RL Grime.
There’s also a ton of depth to this lineup in the smaller print. Elohim, Amy Shark, HINDS, Mt. Joy, Morgan Saint, Superorganism, and Sir Sly are just few of many favorite acts of ours. View the full lineup at the bottom of this post.
I’ve attended Life is Beautiful every year except 2016 when the festival seemed to scale back their spending on the lineup. They rebounded by selling out the festival in 2017 on the backs of a great lineup headlined by Chance the Rapper, Muse, and the Gorillaz. It’s one of my favorite music festivals in the country and it has built its reputation as a chill, laid-back festival compared to some of their other west coast counterparts.
