Kendrick Lamar, Imagine Dragons, Duran Duran, and Stevie Wonder have been named as headliners for the Life Is Beautiful festival, which will take place on September 25th through the 27th in Las Vegas (NV). The festival organizers have partnered with Insomniac in order to enhance the audience’s overall experience at Life Is Beautiful. “Having Insomniac on board as a partner and curating an entire stage is going to enhance the DJ programming at Life Is Beautiful and add to the overall experience at the festival,” Craig Nyman, the festival’s head of music, told Billboard magazine.
Some of the other artists on the lineup include Hozier, Kid Cudi, Major Lazer, DJ Snake, Death Cab For Cutie, Weezer, Run The Jewels, RL Grime, Walk The Moon, AWOLNATION, and Ghostface Killah. “This year’s Life Is Beautiful music lineup is our best yet. We have legends next to today’s superstars, next to some of the best emerging talent in the country,” Co-producer Allen Scott told Billboard. He continued,”It is a celebration of Las Vegas from a local’s viewpoint, and that is how we curate the lineup. It truly is locally grown and nationally known.”
The entire artist lineup can be viewed on the Life Is Beautiful website. “We still have four stages of music, just one that will be dedicated to EDM. Collectively, we are excited about the lineup and the seventy-plus artists who will be performing in Las Vegas this September,” Nyman added. Tickets for the event can also be purchased on the festival’s website.
