LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL ROUNDS OUT MUSIC LINEUP WITH 100 GECS, SLOWTHAI, & FORESTER
New lineup additions will join 3-day music festival in Downtown Las Vegas
*Please note, lineup subject to change without notice.
Las Vegas – Promising to deliver more eclectic sounds to the streets of Downtown Las Vegas, Life is Beautiful has announced the addition of three artists to their powerhouse music lineup. Hyperpop heavy-hitters 100 gecs, UK-based rapper slowthai, and indie electronic duo FORESTER join the impressive roster of artists set to bring their talent to the three-day event taking place September 16-18. Tickets for Life is Beautiful are now on sale at www.lifeisbeautiful.com, and can be purchased either in-full or on a convenient layaway plan starting at $69.99 down for 1-day passes and $95 for 3-day passes.
“The addition of 100 gecs, slowthai, and FORESTER adds an extra layer of energy to an already jam-packed lineup,” said Craig Asher Nyman, Head of Music & Programming at Life is Beautiful. “We’re excited for these three acts to join the fun and make their Life is Beautiful debuts under the neon glow of Downtown Las Vegas.”
Bombastic and lawless, 100 gecs is the stylistically eruptive project of producers Laura Les and Dylan Brady. The duo both laid roots in St. Louis’ experimental electronic scene, but found their sound while collaborating remotely to produce the genre-defying hyperpop maelstrom of their 2019 album 1000 gecs. Scavenging scraps of musical influences and welding them into dangerous machines, they’ve made a name for themselves in the festival scene with their lethal bangers and army of loyal fans.
U.K. rapper slowthai delivers raw, emotionally direct lyrics that address the struggles and concerns of British youth. Releasing his debut studio album, Nothing Great About Britain in 2019, the rapper gained popularity for his gritty and rough instrumentals and politically charged lyrics – which he delivers with a brash flow and hyperactive stage persona influenced by grime and punk rock.
Formed in 2019, FORESTER is an indie electronic duo helmed by Xander Carlson and David Parris. Their music blends acoustic instrumentation with ethereal electronics, resulting in a sound that transports the listener to wide open spaces. With millions of streams already under their belt and a vibe that calls for an eyes-closed escape, FORESTER is a perfect fit for the festival’s lineup.
