The fifth annual Sweetlife Festival in Maryland is celebrating good food and good music with a lineup that boasts artists from indie rock, pop and one hip-hop foodie.
Headlining this year’s one-day fest—taking place on May 10 at the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, MD—will be Foster the People, who are gearing up to release their new album Supermodel on March 14, along with Lana Del Rey, who teased that her upcoming album, Ultraviolence, will be out May 1. Sweetlife gets the honor of being the only East Coast festival Lana is playing this summer.
Other bands on the bill include self-proclaimed foodie 2 Chainz, Fitz and The Tantrums, Capital Cities, Chromeo, St. Lucia, Bastille, Hozier, Bombay Bicycle Club, ASTR, Spirit Animal, Nicky Blitz and our recent New Music to Know pick, GEMS.
Tickets go on sale this Friday (Feb. 14) at 10 am EST, but eager festival-goers can get their tickets two days early by looking for a special code via sweetgreen’s Instagram account.
