Sweetlife Festival 2014 Logo

Billed as 'a music and food festival', Sweetlife 2014 is set to offer the best of both with their single day event this weekend (May 10th 2014) at the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Maryland.

With the grand setting of masses of surrounding forestland, Sweetlife has developed into a much-loved annual party since its inception in 2010 when it was simply a small event held outside the Sweetgreen food destination in Dupont, Washington DC. And yet, it has maintained its solid ethics of green living and healthy eating, enforcing this with offers of local produce and green set-ups such as solar powered stages, composting waste disposal and recycling units. To make it even better, all proceeds from the event go to a very worthy charitable cause!

It's this year's line-up, though, that's getting us most excited for the weekend. Headliners are Lana Del Rey and Foster The People; the latter of whom have been topping the bills at several US festivals this year. Other artists that caught our eye include LA collective Fitz and The Tantrums who have been causing a lot of excitement since the release of their sophomore album 'More Than Just a Dream', UK chart toppers Bombay Bicycle Club and Bastille, LA pop duo Capital Cities and Brooklyn producer St. Lucia.

It's not just about pop though - Sweetlife always has something a little bit different for music lovers. This year we'll see performances from 'electrofunk' partnership Chromeo, Georgia rapper 2 Chainz, dreamwave band Gems and - another one from over the pond - Irish soul singer Hozier. Plus, it's a chance to experience some talented emerging artists such as newcomer That Work, indie pop artist Nicky Blitz, New York duo Astr and Washington rock 'n' rollers Spirit Animal.
