Stevie Wonder, Imagine Dragons & Kendrick Lamar To Headline 2015 Life Is Beautiful Sept. 25-27:

Stevie Wonder, Imagine Dragons, and Kendrick Lamar will headline the third annual Life is Beautiful Festival next month, Sept. 25-27 in Downtown Las Vegas.

They are among more than 70 established and emerging artists to hit the four outdoor stages throughout the weekend.

In collaboration with Insomniac, Life is Beautiful will host an entire Insomniac curated music area, taking over one of the four stages on the festival grounds.

World leading and fresh faced dance music artists on this year’s lineup include Thievery Corporation, Porter Robinson, Major Lazer, DJ Snake, TCHAMI, Cashmere Cat and many more.

In 2014, more than 90,000 fans came together for Life is Beautiful, which expanded to a three-day festival following its amazing success. The all-ages cultural experience continues to grow with the return of the world’s most influential culinary experts, artists and interactive learning sessions.

The 2015 Learning Series will feature thought-provoking, global leaders in pop culture, science, sports, art, leadership and more from diverse backgrounds who have individually impacted the growth of their respective fields.

The series, which is focused on providing festival-goers with an authentic, inspirational and passionate experience, will offer live discussions, learning panels and interactive Q&A sessions as part of the three-day festival.

This year’s learning program, curated by CatalystCreativ, will feature three different daily themes in a way that has never been done before: “A Force for Good” highlighting new approaches to giving back to the community, “Shaping The Future” surrounding topics on technology and new media, and “Challenging the Game” with subjects such as overcoming defeat, facing adversity and more.

“We really focused on creating a program this year that will bring together a group of speakers from all walks of life that millennials trust and look up to,” said Amanda Slavin, CEO and Founder of CatalystCreativ. “The timely topics that will be discussed will hopefully inspire festival attendees and expose them to a whole new way of learning.”
