Pre-Festival Beautiful Happenings

Life is Beautiful Festival Weekend is a time where Downtown Las Vegas
transforms into a beautiful, chaotic masterpiece of music, art, food and fun.
Hotels are packed to the brim, locals and tourists are buzzing around a 2-mile
radius, and everyone is here to have a beautiful time.

The festival officially takes places Friday – Sunday from 2pm – 1am, so you
may be wondering what to do prior to the festival doors opening. Here’s a few
exciting happenings to get the party started early each day of festival
weekend.

Third Thursday on 3rd

Third Thursday Event Downtown Las Vegas

It’s no surprise that attendees get so pumped for the festival that they arrive to
Vegas a day early. Third Thursday on 3rd gives you the ultimate pre-party
experience the day before the festival begins. If you haven’t experienced it
before, Third Thursday on 3rd is a food truck and live art experience with
delicious food from 6 food trucks, a live art battle between 4 local artists, great
music from DJ Edoc and street games. It’s a family friendly event and free to
the public.

Bonus: for locals that haven’t purchased a ticket to the festival, we’ll be giving
away a pair of Life is Beautiful Festival tickets during the event.

Life is Beautiful Pool Party Series

If you’re anxious to start rockin’ out to your favorite bands early, you can join
us at the three Official Life is Beautiful Daytime Pool Parties at Citrus Grand Pool Deck. The schedule is as follows:

  • Friday, September 21st @ 10am Elderbrook
  • Saturday, September 22nd @ 10am Sir Sly
  • Sunday, September 23rd @ 10am Cold War Kids

RSVPs for the pool parties are now closed, but you still have a few options.
First, you can purchase a cabana for the pool parties to guarantee your
entrance into the show and give you a comfortable place to hang. Second, the
shows are free and open to the public. Those with RSVPs will take
preference, but there will be a second line open to non-ticketed guests. These
will be let in on a first come – first serve basis.

*entrance will not be guaranteed in the non-ticketed line.

Freedom 2 Brunch

Shrimp Avocado Egg Toast

If you can’t get into the pool party, you can still have fun before festival doors
open. Experience the Freedom 2 Brunch at Freedom Beat on Saturday and
Sunday from 10am to 2pm. There will be live music from local musicians Dan
Fester and Mahi Crabbe, $20 all you can eat small plates and $10 bottomless
