“This year’s schedule is a fun one and offers fans the chance to see all their favorites on the lineup while also discovering some of today’s emerging artists,” said Craig Asher Nyman, Head of Music & programming at Life is Beautiful in the festival’s press release. “Between the four stages and all the ancillary musical programming, fans are going to have three action packed days of music and entertainment.”

If you’re an out-of-towner coming to the festival for the weekend then be sure to take breaks throughout the shows. It’s easy to feel perfectly fine one minute and then be unsuspectedly hit with a dehydration headache due to the covert nature of dry heat. So stay hydrated! sunscreen

    The peak entry times for the festival are between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. Avoiding entering the festival during these times will also help you avoid long lines!

  • Bring A Refillable Water Bottle!

    Let us iterate this again, bring a refillable water bottle to avoid dehydration! Standing for hours, listening to loud music in a crowd of people and walking to different stages can work up a sweat!

  • You Must Activate Your Wristbands

    You must register your wristbands on the Life Is Beautiful app to access festival entry, updates, activations and more.

  • Service Can Get Dodgy

    Since so many people will be crammed throughout downtown, service can get pretty poor due to the influx of people clogging network bandwidth. With this being said, always have a plan with your group. Have a certain meetup times and meetup spots, so no one gets completely lost or separated.
