    Default Life is Beautiful 2016

    They just announced their dates via a live stream for September 23-25. Bummed they didn't decide to go back to October like the first two years, September it's pretty damn hot.

    I was worried the fest wasn't returning when there was no update on this year's festival. Over its first three years it has become one of my favorites. Awesome laid-back vibe to it, the added awesomeness of experiencing Vegas after the fest closes down each night. It's really unique. I thought booking Stevie Wonder and Duran Duran was a huge win for the festival last year (though the Imagine Dragons booking left something to be desired, but made sense given its their hometown).

    Hoping this year the lineup improves from last. 2014 was the best. I plan on going as long as the lineup isn't a total stinker after having attended each of the first three years.

    I think I might try and get back this year. Last year was rough with only two of us going and booking late.

    I'll be there. I've gone the last two years and really really enjoyed it. Being in Downtown Vegas is super fun too. Just booked at El Cortez Hotel - you can't get any more convenient to the festival. Prices definitely went up for hotels from last year though.

    Presale tickets just opened up. $225 + $20.25 live entertainment tax + $33.50 service fee. $285.70 total. Those fees are ridiculous.

    When do they usually release the lineup for this thing? Any early predictions / bands likely to be there?

    I can't see them pulling a Radiohead or Arcade Fire but a few random guesses

    Muse
    Strokes
    Drake
    Chili Peppers
    Tame Impala (can they headline?)
    and maybe ACDC which I base on Another Planet setting up their SF/LA concerts last year. They had a perfect gap to play last year and didn't.

    Last year they dropped the lineup in May -- I'd expect similar this year.

    Muse and ACDC already played Vegas arena dates this year and Tame Impala played the Brooklyn Bowl recently, doubt they'd headline.

    I'm going to make a totally insane and unfounded prediction...

    Radiohead / ELO / Drake

    So, there a few artists that I'm going to miss at other festivals this year but I'm keeping my fingers crossed that they could pop up on this lineup.

    What do you guys think about Ryan Adams? His tour ends at Red Rocks in the middle of August, so maybe not. But maybe so?

    Also, Chance the Rapper. Not really doing much this year. I was surprised to see him on the OSL poster. Any chance for Vegas?

    And lastly, Miguel. He's already playing Roo, OSL and GovBall. I think he would be a great fit for this festival.

    Another Planet Entertainment (APE) which runs OSL along with Superfly, also runs Life is Beautiful along with a local Vegas promoter. So any bands that are on the OSL lineup should be in play for LiB. Although I would eliminate Radiohead and Lionel since he just played.

    And also, any thoughts on LCD? They are playing Red Rocks, OSL and FYF in August. And they should be coming back at the end of September for ACL. I think they make sense here.

    Really doubt LCD will be allowed to play a second festival just four hours away considering FYF has a hard time selling out every year.

    They are going to announce that they will be announcing the line up soon and tickets are back on sale Monday with a special increase in price to pay for the Insomniac production costs.

    But really, any ideas on who is rumored to be there or any confirmations? Curious who they pull this year for headliners, as they don't seem to follow the other festivals that much on those bookings.

    Going off the hints on their twitter feed the last week or two...some of the bands likely to be on the card include RHCP, Young the Giant, The 1975, Smallpools, and Grizfolk.

    don't know Smallpools or Grizfolk, RHCP is a "meh" headliner and young the giant does nothing for me. The 1975... still waiting to see what the deal with them is... I'm sure I will get it one day.

    I'm on the exact same page, but after seeing the 1975 last weekend I'm sticking them in the "does nothing for me" category. Hoping they pull some better stuff together than this.

    Yikes. Hope they pull better stuff than that. I'm hoping to go back this year, but might only hit one day like I did for the OutKast year if those acts are an early indication.
