Green Day to headline Vegas’ Life Is Beautiful alongside Billie Eilish, Tame Impala

After The Hella Mega Tour, Green Day will hit Las Vegas in September for the Life Is Beautiful festival.

If all goes to plan, Green Day are going to have a suuuuuper busy year on the road in 2021, announcing a new festival headline date in September.

The Oakland trio will be topping the Life Is Beautiful bill alongside Billie Eilish and Tame Impala, following their mammoth stadium run on The Hella Mega Tour with Fall Out Boy and Weezer in June, July and August.

Elsewhere on the Life Is Beautiful line-up are All Time Low, plus the likes of A$AP Rocky, Modest Mouse, Ludacris, St. Vincent, HAIM, Illenium, Young Thug, Glass Animals, Dillon Francis, LANY and more.

Life Is Beautiful takes place from September 1719, with CEO David Oehm enthusing in a statement: After a year away, we’re not only excited to welcome our fans back to downtown Las Vegas, but also our partner artists, chefs, speakers, and creators of all forms. We believe in the power and connection that comes with live experiences and we’re thrilled to reunite and celebrate a collective return to discovery, serendipity, and together!”

We have always put the health, safety, and security of our community first,” says Lauren DelFrago, Festival Director. As we prepare to produce the 2021 festival, we feel a heightened sense of responsibility to our staff, partners, performers, and attendees, and continue to work closely with local and state officials to ensure a safe return to live music.”

Green Day drummer Tré Cool seems particularly excited about it all:
