Life Is Beautiful 2017 has come and gone and sadly now it's another year until we get to be back in Downtown Las Vegas celebrating LIB. That said, it's never too early to start planning for Life Is Beautiful 2018. This article will go over everything you need to know to get ready for Life Is Beautiful 2018: when tickets go on sale, when the lineup comes out, presale dates, and more. LIB 2017 was the first time it sold out (and fast) so let's make sure you are there in 2018.

Useful Life Is Beautiful Guides

These are our most popular Life Is Beautiful guides; these are great sources of info if you are trying to plan for 2018:

Life Is Beautiful 2018 Dates

Life Is Beautiful hasn't officially announced dates yet for 2018, but typically the festival is held the third weekend of September. This would put Life Is Beautiful 2018 at September 21-23, 2018. When dates are officially announced we will update this, but for now I would feel safe in assuming it will be 9/21-9/23.

Life Is Beautiful 2018 Presale

Life Is Beautiful usually has a presale immediately after the festival wraps up. For example, after Life Is Beautiful 2016 the festival held a presale on September 29th, a week or so after the festival ended. Thus your first chance to purchase passes is roughly a year in advance. During the LIB presale both GA and VIP passes were on sale. General admission passes were $225 and VIP passes were $575, not including the fees. Look for Life Is Beautiful to have a presale for 2018 soon.

Life Is Beautiful Lineup


Day of Lineup Announcement


June 2nd    


May 19th   


May 20th  


April 26th

Above you can see the dates for when Life Is Beautiful has announced their lineup each year. Generally you can see the lineup announcement date has been creeping up from early June to late April. I woild look for this trend to continue in 2018 so the Life Is Beautiful 2018 lineup will likely be here in the Spring.

Life Is Beautiful Tickets

If you want all the information on Life Is Beautiful tickets I suggest you check out our Life Is Beautiful Tickets Guide. Life Is Beautiful released their lineup on April 26th and then on April 27th at 10:00 a.m. tickets went on sale. Life Is Beautiful had never sold out before 2017 but last year it sold out extremely quickly. Obviously it will be linked to how good the LIB 2018 lineup is, but I would definitely be concerned about the festival selling out in the future.

Life Is Beautiful Ticket Cost

Life Is Beautiful does a tiered system of passes: once a certain tier sells out the price goes up. The first batch of passes for 2017 were $275 for general admission and $615 for VIP. Once the first tier sold out the GA passes increased to $295 and VIP passes will go to $655. Keep in mind that Life Is Beautiful also has significant fees: service fees, shipping fees and a Live Entertainment Tax (applicable to anything based in Vegas) that adds an additional 9%. Expect roughly $75 in fees on the general admission passes.

What about Life Is Beautiful Hotels?

If you check out our Life Is Beautiful Hotels Page you can see the average hotel price for every day last year. For LIB 2017 the cheapest time to book a hotel was in the summer (June to August), so if you can wait that long to book it's when prices were lowest. If you register at Event Track you can set the price you want to pay and see only the hotels meeting your price in your Profile Page - it's an easy way to find your LIB hotel for next year.
