UPDATE: Sweetlife Festival 2013 Lineup
Sweetgreen’s third-annual music & food festival has announced its 2013 lineup, and it’s a fitting followup to last year’s event. Check out the huge indie acts, and the smaller indie outfits, who will perform on both the Merriweather Post Pavilion’s Main Stage and Treehouse Stage, below:
|Yeah Yeah Yeahs|
|Gary Clark Jr.|
|Twenty | One | Pilots|
Last year during the second-annual Sweetlife Music Festival, thousands of revelers enjoying their sangria, their beers, their Shake Shack burgers, and the sound of their voices merged with their friends’ and their favorite cult or burgeoning artists’, were treated to a nasty spring shower. In the middle of the event, around the time The Shins took the stage, it began to downpour. The unlucky turn of events almost killed the considerable buzz all those lounging on the lawn had been building for hours. It was almost awful. Barred from the rows of seats sheltered by the Merriweather Post Pavilion’s overhang until The Shins completed their set, many threatened to leave. Halfway through the second-annual Sweetlife Music Festival, it looked as if the event wouldn’t be given a third shot.

Luckily for all those ticketholders, and fans hoping to visit the Maryland fairground in 2013, the day didn’t turn out so bad. Kid Cudi killed it, and Avicii brought the house down – a feat, considering how long many had waited to come inside. Despite the cold, despite the wet, despite the strange apparition of so many girls in crop tops and short-shorts in the cold and the wet, Sweetlife 2012 was a massive hit. Which must bode well, come rain or lots and lots of rain, for Sweetlife 2013. Not much yet is known about Sweetgreen’s (the fro-yo guys) third attempt at an outdoor music and food festival, which features some of the biggest and soon-to-be-big names in the biz alongside some of the tastiest food the D.C. Metro Area’s food trucks have to offer. We’ve got a bunch of predictions on the 2013 lineup below, but be sure to check back here once more official info’s been released – and, more importantly, once tickets go on sale!
Sweetlife Festival 2013 Lineup
No names have been officially announced yet, but based on last year’s lineup – and those artists we know are gearing up for 2013 tours – here are our guesses for Sweetlife’s third-annual show:
- Skrillex (similar to 2012 headliner Avicii; heading out on tour next summer)
- Sigur Ros (another one with a 2013 tour on the way)
- Yo La Tengo (ditto)
- The Avett Brothers (they’ll be back from the UK by then)
- Kendrick Lamar
- Foster the People
