Watch out EDC Las Vegas. Life is Beautiful is bringing some of the biggest names in dance music to the Nevada desert from September 16 – 18. The three-day festival boasts headliners of Calvin Harris, Lorde, Gorillaz, Kygo, Migos, and Arctic Monkeys. With huge expectations ahead, Life is Beautiful will be the first American music festival to host Calvin Harris since 2016. The long-awaited return will certainly be special after COVID-19 cancelled his headliner billing for 2020’s Coachella.
In addition to headlining acts, Life is Beautiful will feature Alison Wonderland, Gryffin, Said The Sky, Sonny Fodera, Solardo, and more. One particular consideration to note with the dance acts at Life is Beautiful—the artists will likely not play EDC Las Vegas due to a radius clause. While there are some exceptions to be made, all of these artists for now can be considered out for EDC LV.
Far different than its electronic Vegas counterpart, Life is Beautiful takes place in the heart of downtown Las Vegas, and concludes the festivities around 1:00 a.m PT. Typically, the festival leans towards genres like Indie, Pop, and Hip-Hop, but this year’s edition primes up to host at least 24 dance acts. Tickets go on sale March 18 at 7:00 a.m. ET / 10:00 a.m. PT and can be purchased here.
