2014 Sweetlife Festival feat. Lana Del Rey, Foster the People and Fitz and the Tantrums
Merriweather Post Pavilion - Columbia, MD
Billed as "a party with a purpose," the annual Sweetlife Festival has evolved into one of the country's premier music and food celebrations – an angle that has helped set it apart from the rest of the pack. The event was founded in 2010 by Sweetgreen, which to those unfamiliar, is a popular "fast food" chain intent on bucking tradition by instead putting an emphasis on locally grown, organically produced menu options in keeping with its designation as a "farm-to-table salad restaurant." As a result, the Maryland-based Sweetlife Festival not only offers up an array of healthy food items throughout the single-day spring event, but also brings in a sampling of top-tier musical talent to perform against a picturesque backdrop at Columbia's Merriweather Post Pavilion.
