Heading into what would have been the 8th annual Life is Beautiful Music Festival weekend, the Las Vegas event that has become the toast of the town—and one of the most unique offerings on the highly commercialized music festival circuit—just subtly dropped its 2021 dates.
Originally scheduled for September 18 to 20, 2020, the three-day music, art, comedy, culinary and ideas festival will now take place September 17 to 19, 2021. Life is Beautiful was one of the first to officially pull the plug on fall 2020 back in April due to the pandemic. Other Las Vegas festivals like Electric Daisy Carnival optimistically rescheduled for fall and then ended up canceling until 2021.
Life is Beautiful, Still
Along with the dates and the tagline “Life is Back” on the website, they dropped a new video “Life is Beautiful, Still” on Instagram. Life is Beautiful festival launched in 2013 and has since brought some of the biggest names in music and art to Downtown Las Vegas. Kanye West, Post Malone, Billie Eilish and The Weeknd have all performed on its stages. Spread over 18-blocks and four stages, this unique street festival, is built upon the ethos of community transformation and individual empowerment. Life is Beautiful attracts 170,000 attendees and has brought more than $400 million in revenue to Las Vegas.
West coast music festivals have been slowly announcing rescheduled dates. As of now, Coachella weekend one will take place April 9 to 11, 2021 and weekend two will be April 16 to 18, 2021. Stagecoach is set for April 23 – 25, 2021. San Francisco’s Outside Lands will take place August 6 to 8, 2021 and San Diego’s. KAABO says stay tuned for September 2021. The 25th annual Electric Daisy Carnival is already sold out for May 21 to 23, 2021.
Life is Beautiful sources say more announcements will be coming soon.
