Stevie Wonder and Kendrick Lamar will headline the 2015 Life Is Beautiful Music & Art Festival this September in downtown Las Vegas. Now in its third year, the three-day event will transform 15 city blocks to focus on music, art, food and learning. The festival boasts four music stages, one of which will be curated by Insomniac, the world’s leading producer of dance music experiences. Festival goers can also expect art exhibitions, unique culinary experiences with celebrity chefs and engaging talks by notable speakers.
Vegas natives Imagine Dragons (remember their amazing “Radioactive” remix/collab with Kendrick?) will round out the triumvirate of headliners for the ambitious event. In addition to rock acts like Duran Duran, Hozier and AWOLNATION, the lineup also includes Ghostface Killah, BADBADNOTGOOD, Kid Cudi, SZA and Andra Day. Check out the creative lineup announcement video below for a full list of musical acts.
The Life Is Beautiful Music & Art Festival will take place September 25th-27th and tickets are already a hot commodity. Unfortunately, discounted Early Bird pricing is no longer available, but you can still purchase Advance 3-Day General Admission tickets before prices go up once more. If you’re hoping for more budget-friendly one-day passes, event organizers have stated that IF they decide to sell single tickets, they won’t be available until much closer to the event date. Visit the website to learn more about the event and stay tuned to Facebook and Twitter for updates.
In other interesting Stevie news, you can hear the legendary Master Blaster jammin’ on Jason Derulo‘s latest single, “Broke.” The song, from his forthcoming album Everything is 4, also features country music star Keith Urban and is currently available on iTunes.
