Summer is coming and this indicates the perfect season for a music festival. However, one particular event, Life is Beautiful, decided their dates would be set in the beginning of the school year. This means people have more to look forward to than to stress about back to school. Life is Beautiful is a music festival which will take place in Downtown Las Vegas, and this year people can attend the festival on September 22 to 24. This will be the fifth year of Life is Beautiful being around and so far those past years have been quite successful. Here, visitors are able to explore the amazing artists, performers, influencers, and culinary offerings that will make the 2017 Life is Beautiful experience unforgettable (

The lineup was announced on Tuesday, April 25 and from the looks of it, the featured bands and solo artists are interesting. The single day lineups were recently announced and even social media accounts have had lots to say about it. For Friday, the headliners are Chance the Rapper, Lorde, and Blink-182 along with other acts such as Two Door Cinema Club, 2 Chainz, Zeds Dead, Capital Cities, RAC, Sean Paul, Russ, Circa Waves, and a few others. On Saturday, the headliners are Muse, Kaskade, and Wiz Khalifa plus Cage the Elephant, Schoolboy Q, Milky Chance, Local Natives, Kiesza, Broods, COIN, and other smaller artists. Lastly, Sunday will include the headliners Gorillaz, The xx, Pretty Lights and other artists such as MGMT, HAIM, Pusha T, Vince Staples, PVRIS, Kali Uchis, Mura Masa, Hippo Campus and various, talented, but smaller acts. The entire event is compelling and the headliners are great choices. Ava Malakooti (10) admits that “I would be most excited to see Chance if I were able to go, his music is amazing and the rest of the lineup is pretty good, too.”

Tickets are on sale, however, most of the good tickets have been taken already. For example, all three-day general admission tickets are sold out, including the three day VIPs. In fact, both Friday and Saturday of the one-day general admission tickets are sold out as well, leaving Sunday the only one available for purchase along with all one-day VIP tickets. People should not freak out though, as one can still score tickets on other trusted websites like ticketmaster. Always beware of suspicious websites that sell tickets!

Life is Beautiful is especially exceptional compared to other music festivals because they offer all visitors a “multisensory experience.” The feelings of having fun and exploring foods and places in Vegas are mixed with the enjoyment of being at a music festival. That is what makes Life is Beautiful so special. It is a diverse event which not only includes one genre of music, but instead multiple genres such as hip hop, rock, pop, electronic, reggae, and soul. Thus, Life is Beautiful is a breathtaking occasion that all people should be able to experience at least once in their lifetime.
