LAS VEGAS, NV (CelebrityAccess) — Organizers for the Life is Beautiful Music & Art Festival unveiled the lineup for the 2018 return of the popular music festival, with a hip-hop heavy bill that includes N.E.R.D., Tyler, The Creator, and Miguel.
Also slated to perform are T-Pain, The Weeknd, French Montana, A$AP Ferg and up-and-comers Daniel Caesar, Denzel Curry and Blackbear. Indie pop, rock and EDM are also on offer from the likes of Florence + the Machine, CHVRCHES, SOFI TUKKER, St. Vincent, Bastille, Santigold, Cold War Kids, Foster The People, DJ Snake, Galantis, RL Grime, Odesza, and the musical group Jungle.
The festival is billed as a music and arts festival, so it’s only natural to assume there will be some art on hand and in 2018, it’s being provided in part by UK-based artist, Lakwena Maciver, who reimagined the festival’s lineup poster.
“This collaboration represents what Life is Beautiful means to me – a very powerful message of defiance, and a decision to seek out the glimpses of beauty in the transience of this life,” Maciver said.
Additionally, Life is Beautiful 2018 will see the return of the acrobatic troupe Cirque du Soleil to the event.
“Our focus is to give festival-goers a curated experience that is diverse yet united in our mission to bring people together. We’re fans, not only of the artists but of those who choose to be part of our community,” said Justin Weniger, CEO of Life is Beautiful. “The team is obsessed with creating moments that will be remarkable for both.”
