The Pier’s Weekend Show Locator!

We have another jammed packed three days ahead with this installment of The Pier’s Weekend Show Locator. Hawaii gets a special treat this weekend with the first-time visit of Stick Figure kicking off their Hawaii Tour with Collie Buddz and Kolohe Kai while the rest of the country can catch SOJA, Passafire, Ziggy Marley, Dirty Heads, and Matisyahu.

Life Is Beautiful Single Day LineupThe 2nd annual Life Is Beautiful Festival takes place in Downtown Las Vegas this weekend with three days of live music, delicious cuisine, international artists, and inspirational speakers. This is much more than a music festival; Life Is Beautiful is “dedicated to helping people conquer their fears and chase their dreams…[it] is meant to guide people to the place where they can embrace life and find happiness.”

This year’s music lineup is massive! Check the website closely or download the custom mobile app so you don’t miss Nahko and Medicine for the People and Rusty Maples on Friday, The Roots and Outkast on Saturday, or Foo Fighters and Arctic Monkeys on Sunday. And don’t worry, even if you missed last night’s Grills and Guitars Kick-Off Party you can still catch all the after-parties taking place throughout weekend after each day’s festivities.

If for some crazy reason you need a break from the music, there is plenty more to do in Vegas this weekend. Life Is Beautiful also brings together some of the best cuisine in the region. Vendors spread throughout the festival grounds will be keeping stomach’s full while world-class chefs take the stage for culinary demonstrations. Make sure to track down Jose Andres for some unique street tacos made each day using solar power without any wood or gas.

In addition to four music stages and four culinary villages, attendees will also find inspiration throughout the festival grounds with international street art, conceptual art galleries, and iconic speakers. Some murals can still be found in the streets of downtown as proof of last year’s successful event and this year will be even better!

Remember to come by here every single Friday to see what shows are going on for the entire weekend. You may also view our built-in Show Locator, where you can search by artist & view all of their upcoming shows, with options to purchase tickets for select shows!
