“Life is Beautiful is about inspiring people,” Founder Rehan Choudhry said. “It’s about offering messages of hope and encouragement through a unique experience. “We’ve been so fortunate to work with the world’s most talented and authentic set of musicians, chefs, artists and speakers, who will once again join us in Downtown Las Vegas for an unforgettable weekend, and we are thrilled to finally let the world know who we’re showcasing in 2014.”

Several culinary villages, led by an advisory board of more than a dozen world-class chefs, will be woven into the music experience. This year, festivalgoers will be able to visit one of the many culinary villages without straying too far from the stages.

The advisory board co-chairs are Bruce Bromberg and Eric Bromberg of the Blue Ribbon restaurants at Brooklyn Bowl.

Chefs on Stage demonstrations allow foodies to watch chefs’ techniques up-close. Culinary stars participating in this year’s festival are a veritable who’s who of the food world, including Hubert Keller, Giada De Laurentiis, Cat Cora and Rick Moonen.

The festival’s official kick-off party, Grills & Guitars, is scheduled to start at 7 p.m. Oct. 23 at Gold Spike. The VIP party is ticketed separately from the festival. Cost is $175.

The festival also includes art programming that includes street art, large-scale murals, fine art displays and performance art. A Learning is Beautiful speaker series is also planned. That lineup has yet to be announced.
