Beck, the Killers, Kings of Leon, Danny Brown, and Charli XCX will play the first annual Life Is Beautiful Festival, which takes place in downtown Las Vegas on October 26 and 27. The two-day event is being produced by Another Planet, the promoter behind the well-established Outside Lands and Treasure Island festivals, in collaboration with marketing group MAKTUB and the Aurelian Marketing Group's Rehan Choudhry.
