We’ve waited long enough—a year, in fact—and at long last, the lineup for the 2021 Life is Beautiful Festival in Downtown Las Vegas has been revealed. 

Topping the list is global pop music obsession Billie Eilish, making her second consecutive appearance at the festival. She’s joined by Rock and Roll Hall of Fame trio Green Day, A$AP Rocky, Tame Impala, Ludacris (Luda!), Haim, Illenium, Young Thug, Modest Mouse, Dillon Francis and dozens more from across the musical spectrum.

A total of 63 artists have been announced for the Sept. 17-19 event, though the lineup is often in flux, and a few surprises could be in store before gates open on Sept. 17. Additionally, Life is Beautiful will roll out the personalities and brands taking part in other aspects of the festival—culinary, comedy, arts and ideas—over the next several months. 

But the biggest get is undoubtedly Eilish. The singer last appeared at Life is Beautiful in 2019 on the heels of her debut album “When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go.” She’s since racked up more than 50 industry awards, and Eilish—still just 19 years old—is due to collect more trophies at the upcoming Grammy Awards, where her single “Everything I Wanted” is nominated for Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance. Her “No Time to Die,” the titular track for the upcoming James Bond film, is also nominated for a Grammy.

If history is any guide, Eilish will grace the Downtown Stage as the last performer of the evening—although we don’t know which evening yet. The daily lineups for Life is Beautiful are likely to be announced over the summer.

The Las Vegas-born Life is Beautiful will return for an eighth year in 2021, but it won’t be the eighth in a row. The 2020 event, like the rest of Las Vegas’ entertainment industry, was shut down prior to any artist announcements. The 2019 festival featured, among others, Chance the Rapper, The Black Keys, Post Malone, Vampire Weekend, Lil Wayne and the aforementioned Eilish. 

Tickets to the festival go on sale Friday, March 12, at 10 a.m. PST at the Life is Beautiful website and will be available in four tiers—General Admission, VIP, VIP+ and All-In.
