With Life Is Beautiful and the Electric Daisy Carnival both slated for fall 2021, the future of live music in Las Vegas is getting a lot more interesting. 

Life Is Beautiful will be returning to Downtown Las Vegas on Sept 17-19 with headliners Billie Eilish, Tame Impala, Megan Thee Stallion and Greenday. The entire list of performers and the daily lineups for 2021 have already been posted to the official LIB website

Despite the 2021 festival dates selling out immediately after release, there are some tickets for sale through the Life is Beautiful Ticket Exchange on Lyte. Three-day general tickets are retailing for $608 and three-day VIP tickets are retailing for $1059 after fees.

The resale prices are inflated, but LIB will be the first major festival returning to Las Vegas after 2020 because of COVID-19.

EDC would have been the first major festival to return in May 2021, but it was rescheduled for Oct 22-24 to ensure the event wouldn’t clash with the local reopening plan. 

In a statement from Pasquale Rotella, the founder and CEO of EDC developer Insomniac, he explained that the lifting of restrictions on large public gatherings would be based on a 60% vaccination rate in residents and Insomniac could not take that risk with their May date. 

The Insomniac announcement came only one day before the 2021 lineup was supposed to be released. Due to the last-minute adjustment, EDC will resume accepting refund requests and 2022 ticket transfers until May 5. 

Both LIB and EDC are sold-out festivals returning to Las Vegas in Fall 2021 after a long year of anticipation. Even though they are being hosted only a month apart, both festivals will have their impact on the revival of large-scale music events.
