This past weekend, my husband and I went to the Life is Beautiful Festival in downtown Las Vegas. It was so incredibly fun!! It was totally different from a typical vegas trip...... we didn't even go to the strip at all. The festival was all in downtown, which is being totally revamped. It was a really fun and interesting festival cause it had the music (awesome line-up!), but it also had a whole section that was about food, and other parts with art/learning.

Some of the bands that we saw were The Killers, Kings of Leon, Allen Stone, Passion Pit, Beck, Vampire Weekend, Alabama Shakes, Imagine Dragons, Capital Cities, Youngblood Hawke, and so many more. All were amazing but I especially loved Imagine Dragons, The Killers, and Allen Stone. Imagine Dragons had an incredible finale with their song Radioactive complete with cirque de sole style dancers/performers! It was beyond fun getting to see all the different bands!

For the food, they had a whole culinary village set up with tons for different restaurants that had booths featuring some of their food and drinks. They were smaller portions and nothing over $10 so you were able to try a bunch for different foods and places. They also had several chefs that came and spoke. They also had a beer garden with a zillion different beers and also a whole wine section too. In addition to the culinary village, there was a food truck alley with a handful of food trucks offering delicious bites.

All around the festival there were different art installations as well.... very cool to walk around and look at in between bands. 

Over all, it was a fantastic weekend.... who knew downtown vegas would be so awesome!? I can't wait to go back next year and see what other improvements they have made by then! One thing that we learned was regarding where to stay.... we didn't book hotel until last minute so all the hotels in downtown were either booked or crazy expensive. So we ended up staying at the LVH, Las Vegas Hilton near the Stratosphere. Next year, we will be booking much earlier and staying downtown somewhere.... that way its easier to go back to the hotel for a mid day break and change your clothes in the evening if the temps drop. Our hotel was about 2 miles away from the venue so it was just too far to walk (trust me, we made the walk on night bueno for our feet!) leaving us to get a cab if we needed to get back to the hotel, not so convenient. But now we know and can make the adjustment to make next even better! :)
