The official lineup of sweetgreen's second annual Sweetlife Festival is out, and the little salad-and-froyo-place that could has definitely outdone itself. The Strokes are headlining the Merriweather Post Pavilion festival on May 1, along with Girl Talk, Lupe Fiasco and more.
Aside from the music, a big part of the Sweetlife Festival is the food. Concessions are expected to be organic and local, including an on-site farmer's market just in case you want to get some grocery shopping done between sets. Of course, all this is a huge change from last year's inaugural festival, which was essentially a block party in Dupont Circle. (And this time around, the sweetgreen folks have a little celeb-chef backing from the Jamie Oliver Food Foundation.)
The festival's full lineup:
Cold War Kids
Ra Ra Riot
Walk the Moon
Tickets are available for pre-sale starting tomorrow and then general admission sales begin Friday. Tickets are $55 for the all-ages event.
