Life is Beautiful Festival unveils its highly anticipated and specially-curated 2018 music lineup. Now in its sixth year, the three-day immersive experience returns to Downtown Las Vegas on September 21–23, drawing musicians, artists and culinary masterminds from around the world.  

Headlining this year is a group of talented chart-toppers who bring various genres of music together during the closeout of the fall festival season. Most notably, the infectious sounds of R&B and hip-hop are represented by THE WEEKND, N.E.R.D., TYLER THE CREATOR, MIGUEL, as well as Grammy-winning singer T-PAIN, the unforgettable FRENCH MONTANA, A$AP FERG and up-and-comers DANIEL CAESAR, DENZEL CURRY and BLACKBEAR.  And much like in year’s past, the festival balances out the rhythms with indie pop, rock, EDM and trap favorites welcoming FLORENCE + THE MACHINE, CHVRCHES, SOFI TUKKER, ST.

Music and art merge as the signature Life is Beautiful Festival, bright colorways come to life by UK-based artist, Lakwena Maciver, who transforms the traditional lineup poster into a reimagined illustrative masterpiece. Focusing on the concept of eternity, Lakwena gives the poster a powerful makeover by designing it to be two-sided that’s both bold and futuristic. No matter how the posters are placed, there will be continuity.

This collaboration represents what Life is Beautiful means to me – a very powerful message of defiance, and a decision to seek out the glimpses of beauty in the transience of this life – Lakwena Maciver.
