Over the past five years, Downtown Las Vegas has undergone a major transformation thanks to the revitalization of the second most famous street in town – Fremont. Bars, restaurants, coffeehouses and stores have flooded into the area, capturing the soul and spirit of the new Las Vegas. During this movement, Life is Beautiful was born. Debuting in 2013, the three-day event broke into the festival scene, combining top-tier musical artists, ideas from highly respected speakers, art including murals created by renowned street artists and, in true Vegas form, an incredible food and drink selection. In the years that followed, more of the hottest acts, artists, influencers and culinary talent flowed into the streets of Downtown Las Vegas. And what started as a festival, became something more: a symbol of unity, optimism and creativity. A refreshing reprieve from our complicated lives and our complicated world, now more than 137,000 individuals converge across 18 blocks in the cultural hub of the city to be part of in this beautiful social and cultural takeover.
From the moment the gates open until the last stream of confetti rains down, the Life is Beautiful festival is a celebration, uniting people who love music, art, food and ideas. And when you put that many like-minded individuals together in the streets of Downtown Las Vegas, there’s a surge of electricity that courses through the city: positivity prevails, culture and creativity thrive, and transformation occurs. Experience the stages, dance to the music, hear stories, try the food, hug a new friend, explore the art and meet people who will change your life. These are the best days of our lives.
