Fresh coconuts, good weather, and even better company… Life got a little more beautiful in downtown Vegas last weekend when Life is Beautiful came back to town! The line up was pretty similar to Coachella’s with The Weeknd, Miguel, and Daniel Caesar as a few of the headliners, but the artists were just that good that I had to see them again! Plus, it didn’t hurt that LAUV, T-Pain, Florence + The Machine, Bastille, Arcade Fire and N.E.R.D. were there.
Here’s a recap of the weekend!
DAY 1 | Park on Fremont, The Weeknd & Daniel Caesar
My cousins and I arrived downtown and had a few drinks at the Park on Fremont—a super cozy bar with the nicest ambience and the cutest patio—before heading to the festival. We hung out at Container Park for a few hours and watched local performers beatbox and breakdance, before getting serenaded by Daniel Caesar and ending our night dancing to The Weeknd.
DAY 2 | Exploring the festival grounds, N.E.R.D., Miguel, and Florence + The Machine
We arrived a couple of hours before our first set to explore the festival grounds and there was a lot to see! We visited the “Crime on Canvas” art gallery, admired a lot of the street art, and spent the rest of our night sipping on fresh coconuts while dancing to Miguel and Florence!
DAY 3 | LAUV, T-Pain, Bastille, ODESZA, Blackbear, and Arcade Fire
This was our longest day, but it was also our best! We saw so many performances from Bastille to Blackbear, and we briefly saw ODESZA and Arcade Fire, although we were so sad we didn’t get to see their whole set! My favorites of the day though, (or maybe even the whole weekend 🤫) was T-Pain and LAUV! I knew LAUV would be amazing, but he was even way better than I anticipated! And T-Pain’s set was so. much. FUN. I felt like I was in middle school again, hearing him perform so many of his old songs. The whole crowd was singing loud and dancing hard, and it really made the weekend that much more memorable to me!
Life is Beautiful really can’t be compared to other music festivals. It’s got its own charm. Located at the heart of downtown Las Vegas, it’s giving a new name to our budding downtown community. Vegas is becoming more than just The Strip, and Life is Beautiful is one of the reasons why. I loved getting to enjoy my city like this! And I know you guys will too.
