The Weeknd, Arcade Fire, Florence + The Machine lead Life Is Beautiful’s 2018 lineup

If you already purchased your tickets to this year’s Life Is Gorgeous, you’ll more than happy you did. The Weeknd, Arcade Fire and Florence + the Machine will headline the sixth installation of the Downtown music and arts festival, which returns September 21-23.

The lineup likewise includes Pharell-led hip-hop group N.E.R.D., diverse indie rocker St. Vincent and rapper Travis Scott. DJ Snake, Odesza, Death Taxi for Cutie, Tyler the Creator, Miguel, Blood Orange, Justice, Chvrches, Santigold, Sylvan Esso and others round out the undercard.

“If you look back at the last few lineups, we really aim to cover all categories,” says Craig Nyman, LIB’s head of music and live efficiencies. This year suggested doubling down on that objective and scheduling a few of the greatest artists across the musical spectrum. “We attempt to offer people something for everybody,” adds Nyman. “We acknowledge that fans do like all sorts of music.”

These days, it’s possible to discover somebody who likes the incandescent pop-rock of Florence + the Device– the fest’s very first female-led headliner– but also likes the howling, classic rock tones of Wolfmother and the synthy hooks of Superorganism, both also on this year’s roster. “Music tastes differ and alter,” states Nyman. “When you come to LIB, [our objective is to] make people have that moment where they resemble, ‘Who do I go see next?'”

And while online outlets like Consequence of Noise and UpRoxx have announced that rock is dead following this month’s Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, which supposedly drew little crowds for its guitar-forward acts, Nyman states that’s not part of his state of mind. “We have actually always had a rock part to our festival, starting with The Killers and Kings of Leon. Rock is a leader for us, and it’s not something we’re going to sway from.”

That stated, the lineup is stacked with a few of the very best in hip-hop (Lizzo, anyone?), EDM (RL Grime), indie-folk (Emergency treatment Set) and more– not to point out N.E.R.D.’s first Vegas show considering that the group opened for Kanye West at Red Rock Resort in 2008. And as soon as again, this year’s Life Is Stunning lineup features a local element, with blues-rock trio The Dirty Hooks– who played 2013’s inaugural edition and have been touring with Stone Temple Pilots– rapper Mike Xavier and pop-rock band O Hugely set to representative Las Vegas.

“We have to do with being inclusive, welcoming everybody and encouraging everyone to chase their dreams,” says Nyman. “We desire individuals to come to Downtown Las Vegas and revel and commemorate, but likewise leave sensation motivated and empowered and inspired.”

Beginning Lineup: Sophie Cortes

The women’s soccer standout might forget her cleats when she goes on the roadway, however she would not be captured without Netflix access to watch “Peaky Blinders.”

Athletics| Oct 24, 2017|By Jason Scavone Sophie Cortes during the Aug. 27 match with Southern Utah University in Cedar City, Utah.(R. Marsh Starks/UNLV Creative Solutions )Sophie Cortes cracked the women’s soccer beginning lineup as

a freshman– which simply does not normally occur– in 2014. Now the midfielder is one of the team’s top offensive threats. She also has a thing for otters. You got the very first goal of your college career last year as a junior.

What took place on the play? It was off of a free kick. The ball got played brief to me. I had a girl pulling on my jersey. As I was falling, due to the fact that she was pulling on me, I chipped the ball and it sunk far left corner. The keeper could not even reach. It was terrific. When you’re bearing down on a goalie, when do you understand you have them beat? There’s a quote by Abby Wambach that I’ve seen holds true with me. She states she has never ever seen the ball hit

the back of the web. She’ll strike it, she understands it enters and she’ll just run away. That’s nearly the sensation I get whenever I beat a keeper. You’ll see that slot. You’ll see her angle shift. There’s kind of this little opening of the paradises that happens. For me, I literally know if I hit it best and I run off since I know it went in. It’s a very calm feeling. You’re thinking a lot during the game, however right when you understand I’m going to score, right here you simply slow down. How did you feel before your very first start as a Rebel? I was just sick. As a freshman you don’t

necessarily ever see the field. My coach was like ‘make certain you’re ready. ‘I was like,’Exactly what? OK, sounds excellent. ‘I seemed like I was amongst giants. If you weren’t playing soccer, what would you be doing? I would most likely simply be

in school trying to figure out my life. Soccer has provided me many

chances. I cannot even imagine my life without it. I ran track, however I disliked running. Exactly what’s the very first thing you load for a roadway video game? I want to say my mascara
. The last thing I pack is my cleats. I forget them in some cases. I’m that woman who will bring whatever she needs like my toiletries and my PJs, however I won’t bring my requirements like my cleats, my travel equipment. One journey I brought one shoe. I didn’t inform anybody. My mama was like,’I’m bringing you your cleats. ‘If you could live inside any movie or TV show, exactly what would it be? The Note pad. I’m obsessed with Ryan Gosling, and I love Rachel McAdams. And there’s this program on Netflix and the BBC; it’s called Peaky Blinders. That’s my preferred time: Flapper ladies, that whole dark and dismal age. What animal would you keep as a pet if
you could have it at pet dog or feline size? I like polar bears, or an otter. An

otter is my favorite animal. I would need to tame that thing. Or a lion– a full-grown lion in, like, cub size.

Emerge adds more regional artists to the lineup

In this weekly series, we highlight the entertainers and other individuals who will combine for the Emerge Music + Effect Conference on the Las Vegas Strip November 16-18. Tickets are available now at emergelv.com.

Last week, the Emerge Effect + Music Conference– set to make its very first impact in November in Las Vegas– revealed the addition of more than 50 acts to its currently excellent lineup of up-and-coming artists. The conference’s curation committee didn’t have to look far to spot a few of its fresh talent; a handful of the freshly added acts come from here in Las Vegas.

Brittany Rose is a soulful R&B singer whose profile is increasing quickly thanks to just recently launched EP Homegirl. With her personal lyrics and hip-hop edge, think of B. Rose as Vegas’ own Mary J. Blige. “I attempt to stay as honest and raw and emotional as I can be as an entertainer,” she told Las Vegas Weekly in July.

Psychological lyrics provided strongly over elaborate production are the aspects that specify 28-year-old Ekoh, an MC who has actually performed with Kottonmouth Kings, Dilated Peoples, Immortal Method, Tech N9ne and many more.

Sabriel, a neo-soul singer and songwriter inspired by Prince, Stevie Wonder, D’Angelo and Erykah Badu has also joined the Emerge bill, as has Dark Black, a contagious, guitar-driven post-punk quartet featuring three-fifths the lineup of previous Las Vegas hardcore favorite Caravels.

Rose, Ekoh, Sabriel and Dark Black join formerly revealed local acts The Lique and Mercy Music, including much more distinct Vegas taste to the first-year fest’s amazing offerings.

Fleury headlines new Golden Knights lineup, thoroughly crafted by McPhee


John Locher/ AP Vegas Golden Knights’ Marc-Andre Fleury, Deryk Engelland and Brayden McNabb, from left, sit on stage throughout an occasion following the NHL expansion draft, Wednesday, June 21, 2017, in Las Vegas. The gamers were chosen by the Golden Knights in the NHL growth draft.

NHL’s biggest super stars took the stage Wednesday night at the NHL Awards Show.

Current gamers Sidney Crosby and Connor McDavid accepted awards while legends such as Wayne Gretzky and Mario Lemieux presented them.

But no one took the stage to a louder ovation than former Pittsburgh Penguins goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury.

The three-time Stanley Cup champ brought T-Mobile Arena to its feet as he was announced as one of the last choices in the Golden Knights growth draft.

“I wasn’t anticipating that at all,” Fleury stated. “I’m excited to be with a brand-new team and a new company. By the way the crowd was this evening and the method the team is looking, I am delighted.”

Fleury is one of the most reputable players in the league and will certainly be the face of the franchise early on. However the same features that make him that person won’t permit him to admit it.

“I’m not looking to be the face of much– I simply wish to come in and play hockey,” Fleury stated. “I will offer whatever I have actually got to win some games in addition to entering the community to fulfill people and spread the word about the Vegas Golden Knights.”

Fleury silenced the questions of the permanency of his time as a Golden Knight, stating he and his spouse will be house shopping in Las Vegas over the next couple of days.

One expansion selection who will not have to go home shopping is former Calgary Flames defenseman Deryk Engelland. The 35-year-old has resided in Las Vegas for more than a years and had fun with the Las Vegas Wranglers at one point.

“I began here as a Wrangler,” Engelland stated. “To be here and put this jersey on is an honor.”

Fleury headlined a strong group of players picked by General Manager George McPhee, including Predators’ winger James Neal and Panthers center Jonathan Marchessault.

Neal has 238 profession objectives and Marchessault completed this season tied for 8th in the NHL with 30 goals.

The group also accumulated on the blue line, taking defenseman Brayden McNabb from the Kings, Marc Methot from the Senators and Nate Schmidt from the Capitals. And behind Fleury in objective will be two young goaltenders with potential in Calvin Pickard from the Avalanche and Jean-Francois Berube from the Islanders.

More important for the long-term success of the Golden Knights franchise, McPhee had the ability to acquire 11 future draft choices including multiple first-rounders.

“We had two objectives,” McPhee said. “One was to put an amusing group on the ice that the NHL and Las Vegas can be proud of. The second was to obtain potential customers and draft choices that can help us build our group in the future.”

The year of preparation by McPhee and his team appear to have actually settled, as they made out of the growth draft like outlaws. However, all those draft picks suggest nothing unless McPhee can turn them into terrific gamers.

That process starts almost right away. McPhee and his group fly to Chicago Wednesday night for the entry draft where they hold 12 picks, consisting of 3 first-rounders.

They presently choose 6th however there have actually been talks of them potentially moving into the leading two for a possibility at Nolan Patrick, who assistant general manager Kelly McCrimmon worked with at the Canadian junior ice hockey group Brandon Wheat Kings.

Exactly what the future holds for the Golden Knights is anyone’s guess, however tonight was a win for McPhee.
