It’s not so much that I need music to live it’s more that I crave music. I crave the feeling of a new artist that sounds different. The feeling of hearing a song that defines how I feel at any particular time makes me excited and music that transports me is always playing in my head. The catchy tune or the popular riff also makes it happen. I don’t need a message in the music but it helps. I don’t need a statement in the music because I have my own. Music in my head is for me. It’s as if a group of musicians (not some guy spinning tunes for people to dance to) decided to capture my thoughts, emotions and atmosphere in a 3 minute track. Some people crawl into a corner with a bottle or a nicotine stick. I’d rather sit with my back up against a wall, feet planted firmly on the ground and my head resting back listening to good music.

Do you crave music? Do you need to listen to the good stuff? You probably think life is beautiful as well.

The Life is Beautiful Music festival takes place October 26-27 in Downtown Las Vegas.

There is a good chance you’ll be standing in the crowd at the Life is Beautiful Festival taking it all in and wondering just how much new music you’ll be able to put on your phone. It might be time to upgrade.

Life is Beautiful Festival
The Life is Beautiful Festival is more than music. It is a confluence of art, food, music and the atmosphere that is Las Vegas. Not the typical Las Vegas that you might imagine but the Las Vegas that suggest that there is a heart to the city that few people get to see. A passion for the arts and a love for entertainment and an opportunity to mesh local and visitor into one big two day celebration of what is good.
