Cirque du Soleil Returns to their Roots at "Life is Beautiful Music & Art Festival"
In a return to their roots, Cirque du Soleil will thrill the streets of Downtown Las Vegas at Life is Beautiful Music & Art Festival, bringing performers from all seven resident shows in Las Vegas to the festival footprint on Friday, Sept. 23. 

Similar to Cirque du Soleil’s humble beginnings in 1984, where artists and fans were face-to-face, the landmark live entertainment creator and Las Vegas Strip staple will dazzle with acrobatics, dance and even more surprises throughout the evening.

Life is Beautiful 2015 Recap

Cirque du Soleil is one of the most iconic elements of Las Vegas and their involvement over the last four years has helped Life is Beautiful become the diverse experience it is today,” said Justin Weniger, CEO of Life is Beautiful. “Not only do we have a multi-generational and multi-genre lineup, but we also offer the unique experience that is Cirque du Soleil, allowing us to blend the gap between music, art and performance, which is exactly what our festival is about.”

Life is Beautiful ticketholders will be treated to 30 minutes of live performances inside the festival grid every hour, occurring at 4:30 p.m., 5:30 p.m., 6:30 p.m., 7:30 p.m., 8:30 p.m. with a special finale at 9 p.m. 35 world-class performers from Michael Jackson ONE at Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino, Mystère at Treasure Island, “O” at Bellagio Resort & Casino, Zumanity at New York-New York Hotel & Casino, KÀ at MGM Grand Hotel & Casino, The Beatles LOVE at The Mirage Hotel & Casino and MINDFREAK LIVE! at Luxor Hotel & Casino will astound fans as they dance, tumble and create memories for inspired crowds with performances rarely experienced at a festival.

Cirque du Soleil has shifted the landscape of what is possible in live entertainment, here in Las Vegas and all over the world, with shows that continue to push the boundaries of human performance and theatrical wonder,” said Pierre Parisien, senior director of show quality. “The story of our success will always start with street performance. The opportunity to engage with fans on an intimate level, just feet in front of our incredible artists, brings an exciting chance to partner with Life is Beautiful again and share the magic of Cirque with our community.”

Life is Beautiful brings Downtown Las Vegas to life for a three-night all-encompassing music, art, culinary and learning experience Sept. 23-25. Three-day and single-day tickets are still available for Life is Beautiful Music & Art Festival here. For more information on Life is Beautiful Music & Arts Festival, please visit
