The annual music and arts festival Life is Beautiful is back in Vegas in September with a diverse lineup packed with rappers (Nelly and Kendrick Lamar), rockers (The Killers and The Yeah Yeah Yeahs), and electronic faves (Flume and Odesza). And that’s just a few of the headliners on the 80+ lineup. Also on the bill are the moody trio Cigarettes After Sex, who play perfect music for gazing out a window overlooking a cityscape in a smoky room, and the culty house music of DJ Claptone, who’s known for wearing a bird mask while performing.
Something that makes this festival stand out: it’s the only place in the United States where JammJamm — usually an invite-only, exclusive collaborative jam session — is open to the public (or, to festival-goers, rather.) JammJamm is a fully spontaneous performance that has, in the past, included Anderson .Paak, Tank and the Bangas, T Pain and Ice Cube.
The festival also has a very cool art lineup, with immersive visual experiences led by Meow Wolf, a famous art collective known for curating psychedelic environments that encourage audience participation. The Las Vegas performance community is known to make appearances, as well. This year, you can expect to see shows from Cirque Du Soleil and the Blue Man Group.
