Five Reasons Why the Life is Beautiful Festival is Awesome

By  | 

In general, Ashley and I are big fans of pretty much anything interesting. Sometimes it’s fashion or art, sometimes it’s food or music. Sometimes it’s travel or books or beauty. If it gives us the this is kinda cool vibes, we’re in.

What happens when you put all of these fab things together into three days of fun? We buy tickets, obvi.

Downtown Las Vegas’ Life is Beautiful festival is doing just that on September 25th-27th. It’s filled its multi-faceted lineup with the best of the best: some we’ve experienced, some we know and love, and some we’ve never freakin’ heard of (shhhh, don’t tell) but are excited to discover.

Before we go any further, guys… watch this:

Pretty good stuff, no? We think so too.

Five reasons why the Life is Beautiful festival is awesome (as if you still need convincing):

  1. It’s a smorgasbord!
    Life is Beautiful is not just a music festival, although it would still be pretty cool if it was. It’s a mélange of life’s best: music, art, learning, eating and exploring with friends and family.
  2. The lineup.
    Yea, you may be sold at Stevie Wonder, Weezer, Duran Duran and Kendrick Lamar… and that’s cool. But then there’s Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Heroes, Atmosphere and Walk the Moon on the lineup too.
  3. The art.
    No, we didn’t make it to Burning Man last week or Art Basel last year. ALL GOOD. From street art to performing art, there’s something for everyone at Life is Beautiful.
  4. The food.
    We ❤ food! Especially delicious food prepared by world renowned chefs. Demonstrations by the likes of Rick Moonen (RM Seafood) Hubert Keller (Burger Bar), and Kim Canteenwalla (Honey Salt) will be available to VIPs. These culinary geniuses will share their best recipes while food trucks, including (our fav) 50 Shades of Green will be there too.
  5. The learning.
    Yes, yes, we love to have fun (we’re blonde) but we like learning a few things, too. Activists, innovators and leaders like Tony Hseieh (Zappos), Bill Nye (the science guy!), IN-Q and Geena Rocero will be sharing their inspirational journeys. Tiffany Shlain, one of Newsweek’s “women shaping the 21st Century” and who NPR claims to have delivered one of the Best Commencement Speeches, ever, will be speaking, too. How can you miss that? We’re not gonna.
