UPDATE (Sept. 13) -- Life is Beautiful announced that it will use the CLEAR app to allow for attendees to upload their COVID-19 vaccine card ahead of this weekend's festival in downtown Las Vegas.

According to the festival, upon entry, all Life is Beautiful attendees will be required to show proof of a COVID-19 vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test result within 72 hours of each day of the festival.

Life is Beautiful will also have an on-site rapid testing center available to festival attendees by appointment only.

According to organizers, in order to be considered fully vaccinated, guests must complete the entire recommended series of vaccination two full weeks prior to the first day Life is Beautiful (Sept. 17). Any vaccine authorized to prevent COVID-19 by the FDA, including by way of an Emergency Use Authorization, or by the World Health Organization will be accepted. EUA-authorized and recommended COVID-19 vaccines include those produced by Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson/Janssen, the release notes.

The fastest way for guests to show proof of their vaccination status is to utilize Health Pass within the free CLEAR app. Attendees are able to create a profile and scan a picture of their vaccination card in the CLEAR app ahead of time, so they do not need to bring a physical copy of their card to the festival.

  • Government-issued Photo ID
  • AND one of the following:

For those not vaccinated against COVID-19, proof of a negative test for entry, tests must be administered within 72 hours of each day they are attending.

Three-day ticket holders may be tested on or after Thursday, Sept. 16 for their negative result to be honored on all three festival days.

At-home tests will not be accepted, according to Life is Beautiful.

The following lab-administered tests will be accepted:
