In conclusion, when people think of Las Vegas and music festivals in the same sentence, they usually think of Insomniac and its flagship festival, Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC). LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL was born in 2013 as part of the major transformation of Downtown Las Vegas as a cultural hub. Since then, it has contributed over $350M of economic impact and cultural capital to the area. During the three-day festival, premier musical acts, experiential artists, comedians, thinkers and culinary talent flow into the urban streets of DTLV, in addition to the festival’s 175,000 attendees.

What started as an event has indeed become something more: a symbol of connection, joy and creativity. In the meantime, LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL continues to be driven by its core mission. Their motto is to presently create a holistic experience to aid in positive community transformation and individual empowerment. This occurs specifically through collectivizing and inspiring through shared experiences driven by art and culture.
