The Las Vegas festival beat out Reading & Leeds, Fuji Rock, TRNSMT and more nominees to the win.

After a year off due to the coronavirus pandemic, Life Is Beautiful returned last year with headliners Tame Impala, Green Day and Billie Eilish.

During the festival, Eilish used her time on stage to debut three tracks from her album ‘Happier Than Ever’ for the first time, and told the crowd it felt like “a dream I’ve had many, many times in the last year… I can’t tell you how excited I am to be with you guys and to see all of your beautiful faces.”

Other winning fests at the BandLab NME Awards 2022 include Reading & Leeds Festival, which picked up Best Festival In The UK Supported by White Claw, and Wide Awake, which snagged Best Small Festival.
