Downtown Las Vegas will be dancing to a different beat next September, when the Life is Beautiful music and art festival returns for the third year. Instead of the feisty performances on Fremont Street, the heart of downtown's attractions, fans will get to see Stevie Wonder, Imagine Dragons and Kendrick Lamar headlining the festival. The eighties super-group Duran Duran are also heading to Vegas.

"Life is Beautiful will return to Downtown Las Vegas to provide festival-goers an exciting experience of world-class cuisine, extraordinary art and some of the world's biggest musicians," the organization said this Tuesday on a press release.

Tickets are now for sale to the three-day fest, scheduled for September 25, 26 and 27, and range from $235 to $595 - unless you want the double down pass, which includes massages and "super VIP" concierge services and will set you back $1,850.


There's also the All In, which allows you to chill at the Artists Lounge and costs a whopping $2,495.

Aside from the headliners, there are other fresh and big names to toss around in this lineup. There's Hozier, Weezer, Brandon Flowers, Kid Cudi, Awolnation, Death Cab For Cutie, Twenty One Pilots, Brits Glass Animals and Royal Blood, Run The Jewels, Clean Bandit, Los Angeles-based Meg Myers, Danish act New Politics, among others already announced and yet to be disclosed.

The festival's partners are Another Planet Entertainment and Insomniac, and the venue will feature four stages. One of them will be dedicated to dance music, curated precisely by Insomniac and including acts like DJ Snake, Thievery Corporation, and Cashmere Cat.

Last year, the festival attracted over 90,000 people, which caused the festival to expand to three days in 2015.

"Now in its third year, the all-ages cultural experience continues to grow with the return of the world's most influential culinary experts, artists and interactive learning sessions," the organization adds.

This is the second major festival happening in Las Vegas this year, after Rock in Rio drew over 172,000 people in its first ever American edition. The Brazilian festival is set to return in 2017.
