This year, Life is Beautiful has partnered with Insomniac, who produces Electric Daisy Carnival. Insomniac will create a stage that incorporates the company's signature over-the-top production, pyrotechnics and creative displays. The stage (one of four at Life is Beautiful) will feature leading DJs and dance music along with amazing laser and light shows.
"We both believe in the power of art, music and community, and creating immersive environments in unique locations," said Pasquale Rotella, CEO and Founder of Insomniac. "Life Is Beautiful will transform Downtown Las Vegas into a magical urban cityscape, and we can't wait to do that together."
Several culinary villages, led by an advisory board of more than a dozen world-class chefs, will be woven into the music experience. Chefs on Stage demonstrations allow foodies to watch chefs' techniques up-close.
The festival also features art programming that includes street art, large-scale murals, fine art displays and performance art. A Learning is Beautiful speaker series is also offered.
