The predictably stacked lineup for the 2018 edition of Life Is Beautiful has been unveiled.
Tuesday, festival organizers hit Facebook Live to please me and everyone I know with the news that Tyler, the Creator will lead the extensive list of artists hitting Las Vegas in September for the unparalleled three-day experience. The Weeknd, Travis Scott, Arcade Fire, Chvrches, N*E*R*D, ASAP Ferg, T-Pain, Santigold, St. Vincent, French Montana, Miguel, Amy Shark, Justice, Harry Hudson, and more also on this year's lineup.
I was handsome and/or fortunate enough to be on the ground for last year's Life Is Beautiful, which set a crowd record with a projected three-day attendance of nearly 140,000 fans. In addition to a damn near overwhelming assortment of artists from every imaginable genre and scene, festival attendees have the chance to check out some of Vegas' finest food and libations, as well as enjoy exclusive street art and pop-up events from a multitude of brands. Last year, for example, the festival set up an art gallery featuring several pieces from Blink-182's Matt Skiba, also on the lineup.
Life Is Beautiful 2018 runs Sept. 21-23 in downtown Las Vegas. Ticket sales begin this Thursday at 10 a.m. PST, so do the wise thing and set a reminder on your phone. You can also opt to get a reminder directly from the Life Is Beautiful team by giving them a small amount of contact info right here.
