We exist to build a more beautiful world.

A name like ‘Life is Beautiful’ comes with great responsibility. Because Life is Beautiful is more than just a festival, it’s a way of moving through the world.

But what is beautiful, anyway?

It is a world that defaults to optimism. It is a world where potential meets possibility. It is a world with equity in opportunity. It’s a world that offers exposure to new experiences, outside of our comfort zones.

A community
development project
disguised as a
music festival

Founded in 2013, our three-day music, arts, and culture festival was born as part of a major transformation of Downtown Las Vegas, a historically underserved neighborhood. In the years since our founding, over $350M+ in economic impact and cultural capital have flooded into DTLV and the surrounding area.

This great impact is fueled by a simple belief: art can change the world. Every year, the festival works to bring more musicians, artists, creators into the sun. To-date that’s meant over 570 musical acts, 113 unique large scale public art installations, 124 comics and key notes, and 36 philanthropic partners have been ushered into Downtown Las Vegas to celebrate community.
