In and Out Policy

It is our top priority for everyone to have a safe, fun and beautiful time. And this festival is such a beautiful experience that you won’t want to miss a minute of the action. However, we also understand the desire to take a break, to freshen up and to explore Downtown Las Vegas. To offer the best experience possible for attendees, General Admission guests will be permitted three exits and three reentries per day. If you exit and reenter, you must be back inside by 9 p.m. This policy helps us eliminate wait times and lines at the entrance and to ensure the safety and security of the festival and all festival goers. Remember, if you are leaving, to always get scanned out by a security supervisor BEFORE you exit. You will not be allowed to return to the festival grounds otherwise. We are here to help. Ask any uniformed personnel at the festival gates for assistance with on-site questions.


Life is Beautiful is an all-ages festival. Everyone 2 and over will need a festival wristband. Passes are available for purchase via eventbrite.com or via the mobile app. A wristband will take the place of a paper ticket. Wristbands will ship in advance. No tickets will be printed or shipped.

A high-security wristband with an embedded RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) chip will be mailed to you before the festival. The wristband is like cash—it cannot be replaced if lost or stolen. Please do not put on your wristband before the Festival weekend. The wristband will be scanned as you enter the festival site. It should remain on your wrist throughout the festival.

Wristbands will be shipped to customers in the U.S. and Canada starting September 1. You will be notified when your order is shipped. Your order will be shipped via regular mail, and you should expect your wristband(s) to arrive seven to 10 business days from the shipping confirmation email date. If you are purchasing from outside the U.S. or Canada, wristbands will be held at Will Call at the Festival Box Office. Wristbands are non-transferable and non-refundable.
