Life is Shit Festival

Life is Shit Festival is an annual, single-day DIY punk/rock music festival held at Las Vegas music venue The Dive, founded in 2013 by members of the Las Vegas music community. Life is Shit was created as an alternative festival to the massive, pop culture-oriented Life is Beautiful Festival, which occurs in downtown Las Vegas the same fall weekend.

Life is Shit mainly features talented acts from the thriving Las Vegas music scene. However, as the festival has grown, it has made an effort to bring in national acts, and has booked notable bands such as Detroit’s Timmy’s Organism, which signed to Jack White’s Third Man Records shortly after its Life is Shit appearance, and also Chicago’s White Mystery, which filmed part of its feature-length dark comedy “That Was Awesome” at Life is Shit.

The festival also serves as a fundraiser each year for local and international charities. Past charities have included Girls Rock Vegas, a summer camp and after-school program which teaches young, underprivileged girls in Las Vegas how to develop a positive self image by playing rock music, and Ndoto Afrika, an Australian non-profit which works to build toilets in rural Africa. Fundraising is achieved through a raffle, with prizes donated by the festival performers and many Las Vegas businesses, including recording studios, record stores, and tattoo shops.

Food trucks, artist booths and contests for prizes, such as the “My Car is Shit” shitty car show, have also been a part of Life is Shit. And in 2015, the “Farts and Craps” table made its debut for a shitty candle painting contest, with the winner receiving a gift certificate to a local tattoo shop.

Despite competing with a multi-day, corporate music festival, Life is Shit has received overwhelming community support, as well as media coverage from nearly all the major Las Vegas media outlets, as well as the Washington Post.
