And The Beat Goes On ...

Life is Beautiful isn’t the only annual music festival in Las Vegas. Here’s a look at a couple other can’t-miss music festivals.


IHeartRadio Music Festival

Sept. 18 and 19, 2015

Celebrating its fifth year at MGM Grand, the iHeartRadio Music Festival is one of Las Vegas’ hottest tickets. Featuring a diverse lineup of artists from the worlds of hip-hop, pop, country and EDM, this year’s event will include performances by Kanye West, Janet Jackson, the Who and Coldplay.

Tickets sell out fast, so be sure to listen to your favorite radio station for your chance to score a seat. Even if you can’t get in, you can still watch the event when it streams live on Yahoo or catch select performances when they’re broadcast on the CW at a later date.

Tip: Music fans can catch several up-and-coming and established artists performing at iHeartRadio Music Festival’s Daytime Village on Sept. 19, located at the MGM Resorts Village. A separate ticketed event, artists scheduled to perform this year include Walk the Moon, Nick Jonas, Trey Songz, Echosmith and more. Visit for further details.


Route 91 Harvest Festival

Oct. 2 to 4, 2015

Returning to the MGM Resorts Village for its second year, this three-day country music festival’s all-star lineup features headlining performances by superstars Tim McGraw, Keith Urban and Lady Antebellum. Emerging artists will also be showcased on a second stage, “Next from Nashville.”

Tip: Guests can bring a sealed 16-ounce bottle of water into the festival that they can refill at a complimentary water station.
