The first annual Sweetlife Festival was a hit this past Saturday at DC’s Merriweather Post Pavilion. Fun opened the main stage with a bang and a slew of top-notch acts followed suit, including The Shins, A$AP Rocky, Fitz and the Tantrums, Explosions in the Sky and Kid Cudi (who closed out the night's festivities). Delta Spirit, Zola Jesus, and Twin Shadow (among others) rocked the treehouse stage, while fans snacked on an endless variety of treats from prime food vendors, like Shake Shack, Luke's Lobsters, Taïm Falafel and Roberta’s. V.I.P. festival-goers feasted on oysters, tacos, and “haute-dogs” from R.J. Cooper, as well as Dolcezza’s salted caramel gelato.
