The fourth annual music + food festival will be held at Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, MD, on Saturday, May 11.
Much more than a festival, sweetlife reflects a way of approaching life; a way of living where passion and purpose intersect. These principles are what steer sweetgreen, a network of sustainable eateries originated in Washington, DC, and now with locations throughout the Northeast, founded by Georgetown graduates Nicolas Jammet, Jonathan Neman and Nathaniel Ru in 2007. sweetgreen is a place that unites ideas and concepts commonly thought to be mutually exclusive not only in business, but also in life. In light of this, sweetgreen believes that food can be both healthy and delicious, high-quality and affordable; that experiences can be both meaningful and fun, hip and wholesome; and that business practices can combine style and substance while being mutually beneficial to the company and community they serve.
sweetgreen also believes in the power of great music and its ability to unite a tribe. Music has always been a part of sweetgreen’s culture. Not only are the stores an oasis of delicious and healthy food, but they are also places where you can hear the latest and greatest tracks. What started out as a fun little idea of bringing a bunch of like-minded bands to a parking lot in DuPont Circle, has now blossomed into a massive multi-stage event with 18,000 attendees that takes place in one of the most famous amphitheaters in the country, creating, in effect, a platform from which to promote healthy living while celebrating with a wonderfully eclectic lineup of some of today’s most cutting edge artists.
sweetlife festival was created to encourage a holistic lifestyle where each experience is the intersection point that results in a sum greater than the individual parts. With aligned partners like Honest Tea and Keany Produce, the amenities at the festival are plentiful and complementary and have been organized into one Experience Zone, where the body and mind are fed the best of everything.
