    I don't care who organizes it; a festival in downtown Vegas will be awful.

    It's Another Planet Entertainment, not Superfly. While APE is involved with Outside Lands, it's my understanding that it's Superfly's baby, not APE's. So who knows how this fest will turn out.

    It got shitty turnout which is crazy with the line-up it had. That fest was so much fun. It was during Halloween so everyone was dressed up. Plus being in Vegas during football season was another bonus. Although I remember it being crazy hot early in the day.

    On the plus side you might be able to bet on how many people will die at the festival.

    Downtown Las Vegas? Not a great place for a festival at all. I wonder exactly how they are going to pull it off there.

    Vegoose was the shit, my friends and I walked up to the barricade 15 minutes before Daft Punk, that will never happen again. But, was that venue considered downtown Las Vegas? I feel like it was pretty far from the strip.

    "Life Is Beautiful will run two days at multiple indoor and outdoor spaces, Choudhry says, though the specific dates and venues are still being finalized. “It will be a very large-scale event,” he says, utilizing “venues that we build from scratch and the historic venues that are already Downtown. It will be spread out, but there’s also gotta be a sense of intimacy and energy.”"

    The dates for the festival are October 26th and 27th. There's going to be four outdoor stages and seven indoor ones spread throughout ten blocks in and around East Fremont.

    I hang out in down town. Last fall they did a mini festival that connected the Beauty Bar, the griffin ( I think) and the bunker house in which the ally's were open and people ran from venue to venue watching bands play. I'm kinda excited about this. Being Halloween weekend and all. I know of some empty, gated up lots behind the Ogden building that could be stages.

    I'm excited for the venue. And I hope they give local discounts like Coachella does to locals of Indio.

    I prefer downtown to the strip these days. Especially the location of this festival. Fremont East with Instert Cons, The Griffin and Beauty Bar in the area is fantastic. To me the strip has been overrun with obnoxious frat types for far too long, running around with oversized drinks strapped to their back and flooded with porn clickers. Fremont Experience is a bit of a carnival experience, cheaper gambling and the nice escape to the bars I mentioned above that have zero gambling inside.

    I'm very intersted to see what acts they pull especially considering they will have some smaller indoor venues. I also heard once a month the El Cortez is hosing local indie bands performing on their roof top. Very cool. First Friday is also in downtown Vegas. More art and things to do other than gambling. I still have fun on the strip but I definitely like downtown better these days.

    Fax is absolutely correct. Freemont is a way better place to chill than anywhere else. You're not going to have to worry about dress codes or standing in line for an hour to get in a club. Freemont Street is perfectly capable of hosting a music fest with the infrastructure already in place. The stages are big and able to support line array speaker systems. The only problem is the slapback acoustics you get off the buildings if yr standing in the wrong spot. Freemont usually hosts alot of free shows especially when the Rodeo and the Country Music Awards are in town. The only problem is its a public place and charging admission for outdoor shows will not hapapen. The collective groups of casino's on Freemont pay for the acts or they play for free. Check out the relatively new Backstage Bar and grill across from Commonwealth. Nice billard tables and inexpensive drinks.

    Man seeing this fest just makes me miss Vegoose even more. The final year was the best fest lineup ever for one that ended up going bankrupt.

    Yeah, I had a blast at that Vegoose. It was so much fun with Halloween and football season.

    This line-up is questionable for the music but really top notch for the chefs.
