With the impending change of seasons looming in the air, it’s hard not to think about the summer months that will soon be upon us. With summer comes warmer weather, and, of course, an all-new array of artists and bands making their way to Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Md.
Kicking off the Merriweather summer concert series is the third annual Sweetlife Food and Music Festival, taking place this Saturday, April 28th.
Sweetlife is sponsored by Sweetgreen, a Washington, DC-based restaurant chain that uses healthy, organic foods from local farms in its restaurants. The festival, a celebration of music, food, and eco-consciousness, will feature a wide variety of artists performing on two stages. Among the musicians set to perform are The Shins, fun., Kid Cudi, Avicii, Fitz and the Tanstrums, The Delta Spirit, Explosions in the Sky, and A$AP Rocky.
While the line-up is impressive, Sweetlife isn’t solely about the music; in addition to taking in great live performances, concertgoers will also have the opportunity to sample a wide variety of healthy and delicious organic foods provided by local eco-friendly eateries and restaurants. This year, Sweetlife has partnered with DC Central Kitchen and will raise money to support their charitable mission to use food as a tool to strengthen bodies, empower minds, and build communities.
We here at TVD want to make your life a whole lot sweeter. For your chance to win a pair of tickets to Sweetlife, comment below and tell us your favorite summer concert experience.
