There is a new LiB on the festival scene. Life is Beautiful will make its debut in Las Vegas, NV October 26-27. With a lineup boasting powerful rock and hip-hop names, Pretty Lights, STS9, Empire of the Sun and Big Gigantic hold their own on the festie-favorites, EDM side of the spectrum. The newest festival on the scene is slated for a downtown location, and when we say "downtown," we don't mean the Vegas strip, we mean Fremont Street, which has revitalized itself with a slew of restaurants, boutiques, and high-tech operations flooding into Sin City. The festival has an interesting angle to set itself apart from the crowd. Much of the event's lineup unveiling video focuses on star-studded roster of chefs. Yum!
Life is Beautiful rounds out its electronic lineup with wunderkind Robert DeLong, indie sensation Wallpaper, and a couple more niche DJs. That being said, if the nascent festival really wants to capitalize on the growing festival scene, there will undoubtedly be several more EDM names attached to the lineup in the coming months.
