Life Is Beautiful, the music and arts festival that takes over Downtown Las Vegas Sept. 20-22, released its list of 80-plus restaurants feeding the masses as headliners Chance the Rapper, Black Keys, Post Malone, Billie Eilish, and more perform.

Restaurants on the Strip such as Eataly, Gordon Ramsay Steak, Jaleo by José Andrés, Momofuku, and NoMad’s restaurants join Roy Choi’s Kogi BBQ and Mabel’s BBQ on the roster of food experiences festival goers can eat.

New for the seventh iteration of the festival, an omakase experience that features two chefs every night. Roy Ellamar of Harvest at the Bellagio, Jennifer Murphy of Gordon Ramsay Hell’s Kitchen at Caesars Palace, and Josh Smith of Bardot Brasserie at Aria are among the chefs who plan prep meals for 12 diners at three seatings nightly.

Vegan diners can head to the Farm Stand with dishes from chefs who are collaborating with local farms, while campfire food comes at the Cookout. Cocktail School brings a roster of interactive seminars and tastings covering cocktail trends hosted by local mixologists.

Honey Salt and DW Bistro host multi-course brunches with cocktails held before the festival gates open. Those with VIP+ tickets can find happy hour popups from Eataly, Gordon Ramsay Steak, and Caviar Connection, while Sake Rok provides the food including sushi made to order inside the Artist Hospitality Lounge.

And for those who don’t want to dine at the festival, Postmates Pickup windows offer fare pickup.
