Party Into the AfterLife This Weekend

Life Is Beautiful isn’t just a festival, it’s a marathon. If you haven’t been training this past month, you’re going to need a lot of Red Bull when the weekend hits. The festival begins at 2 p.m. and ends at 1 a.m. each day—and that doesn’t account for pre-games and after-parties.

If you can muster up the strength and endurance, you can start your day with an O Face Doughnut brunch party and ride the festival wave through the early morning when Downtown funk institution the Get Back and festival DJs such as Major Lazer’s Jillionaire take over Fremont Street for AfterLife. Expect a few surprise guests to pop up, too. In most cases, a Life Is Beautiful wristband will get you free entry and additional perks.

Here’s a list of events taking place Downtown around the festival this weekend (in chronological order). Rage on, young (wo)man:
