Proving once again that indeed, Life Is Beautiful, the Las Vegas-based festival released its music lineup this morning for the fifth annual music and arts festival. The festival, which was recently awarded Pollstar's Festival of the Year award for 2016, has one of the most impressive lineups to date.
Life is Beautiful has always had an eclectic feel to it. There truly is something here for fans of all different walks of life and styles of music. The fact that people rarely fall into one single genre of music is what makes this festival so exciting and interesting year after year. Fans don't have to choose between EDM, Rock, Alternative or Rap. All of these styles (and more!) are on display in this year's lineup.
On the heels of their soon-to-be-released album, Humanz (out 4/28), Gorillaz will take to the LIB festival stage and remind everyone why they are one of the hottest acts around. It's been seven years since their last tour in N. America, so expectations are running high for what surely will be a command performance.
Joining them at the festival will be Muse, one of the greatest live bands to play in this generation. For fans who haven't caught them live yet, the LIB venue makes for the perfect opportunity. The city streets of downtown Las Vegas are transformed into the festival grounds and make for one of the most comfortable festival experiences across N. America.
Other artists on the lineup include Lorde, whose recently announced album Melodrama will release just ahead of the festival in the fall. For EDM fans, Whethan is on board, who, if his recent set at Day Club was any indication, is surely going to blow things up in downtown Vegas. And for the old school lovers, a particular delight: De La Soul will be there to bring the feels and the love to all in attendance.
This really is just the tip of the iceberg for the Life is Beautiful lineup. Bands such as Blink-182, DREAMCAR, The xx, Cage The Elephant will join performers like Chance The Rapper, Kaskade, Wiz Khalifa and more. Take a look at the full list of performers below and make sure to grab your tickets this coming Thursday.
Tickets go on sale here this Thursday, April 27 at 10 a.m. If the presale sell-outs are any indication, fans will want to act fast because these tickets will not be around for very long.
