You know it’s a DJ world, and we’re just living in it. So of course electronic music will have a significant presence at Life Is Beautiful.

The electronic act garnering the most buzz is Swedish production duo Galantis. Comprised of Linus Eklöw (a.k.a. Style of Eye) and Christian Karlsson of Miike Snow, the pair made their live debut in April at Coachella. Already, their music has gotten the attention of such big names as Kaskade and Steve Angello, who’ve been incorporating Galantis’ anthemic pop bangers into their own festival sets.

Brooklyn-based two-piece Holy Ghost! combines leather jacket rock-and-roll swagger with disco rhythm, employing guitars, drums and heavy synth in their live shows. Expect them to transform the stage into the best basement dance party you never attended.
Australian rising star M4sonic is trained in classical piano, but his claim to fame is remixing and creating dance hits on a launchpad. Yes, he’s pushing buttons onstage, but his agility and creativity are a sight to see, as is the pulsating visual display behind him.

Lastly, even though Skrillex is no stranger to Las Vegas, the audio and visual production value he’ll bring to the festival is far beyond anything he can cram into a nightclub. This is the first time his famous spaceship set will land in Las Vegas.
