Tickets are ON SALE NOW.
“The addition of 100 gecs, slowthai, and FORESTER adds an extra layer of energy to an already jam-packed lineup,” said Craig Asher Nyman, Head of Music & Programming at Life is Beautiful. “We’re excited for these three acts to join the fun and make their Life is Beautiful debuts under the neon glow of Downtown Las Vegas.”
Discover more about these newly added artists below, and make sure to memorize their lyrics before September!
Bombastic and lawless, 100 gecs is the stylistically eruptive project of producers Laura Les and Dylan Brady. The duo both laid roots in St. Louis’ experimental electronic scene, but found their sound while collaborating remotely to produce the genre-defying hyperpop maelstrom of their 2019 album 1000 gecs. Scavenging scraps of musical influences and welding them into dangerous machines, they’ve made a name for themselves in the festival scene with their lethal bangers and army of loyal fans.

Born Tyron Kaymone Frampton, U.K. rapper slowthai delivers raw, emotionally direct lyrics that address the struggles and concerns of British youth. Releasing his debut studio album, Nothing Great About Britain in 2019, the rapper gained popularity for his gritty and rough instrumentals and raw, politically charged lyrics – which he delivers with a brash flow and hyperactive stage persona influenced by grime and punk rock.
