Kanye West, OutKast, more: Life is Beautiful

The 2nd annual Life Is Beautiful Festival is set to hit downtown Las Vegas this October and the lineup is as premiere as any festival this summer. As the headline reads, Kanye West and OutKast are in, and amongst the headliners that also feature Foo Fighters, Arctic Monkeys, and Skrillex. More hip hop and R&B are represented by Lionel Richie, The Weeknd, The Roots, G-Eazy, DJ Mustard, and Dizzy Wright.

Last year’s festival brought 60,000 attendees to a part of downtown Las Vegas that many tourists are likely unfamiliar with. It’s near the Strip and Old Strip, but nothing like it as you can sense from the sweet recap video below. The festival also features many learning talks and celebrity guest chefs for further mental enrichment and tasty nourishment. Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh, and one of the co-founders of Downtown Project, is expecting over 100,000 people this coming Fall, as stated in a talk of his I attended last week at the AIA Convention (more on that soon…) Get a sense of what to expect this year with the video once again beneath… it’s only going to get bigger in 2014 as late October is now the go-to travel weekend to Vegas this Fall.
