Sweetlife Festival

Maryland’s Sweetlife Festival, which boasts both live music and high-end food vendors, is about to go into its fifth year, and it’s just announced the lineup for this year’s one-day show. Sadly, this year’s bill is less interesting than what the festival has brought in previous years. It’s overloaded with corporate radio-fodder pseudo-indie: Foster The People, Bastille, Fitz & The Tantrums, Capital Cities, St. Lucia. But there are bright spots. For one thing, it marks Lana Del Rey’s ascension to festival-headliner status, which should, if nothing else, be fascinating. For another, the undercard has a few acts well worth seeing: Chromeo, 2 Chainz, Bombay Bicycle Club, GEMS. I guess the food will be good, too. The show comes to Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia 5/10, and you’ll find more details here.

  1. I life in Maryland, but I go to Bonnaroo every year. Other than that I try to win free tickets to freefest, but other than that I don’t really give more local festivals a chance cause I’m fairly confident the experience won’t live up to Bonnaroo, but festivals like firefly put up line ups that make it kind of tempting since they’re right around the bend, but this line-up makes it pretty easy to dismiss this opportunity haha.

  2. Being a Marylander, this is a pretty easy line-up to pass on. Firefly has come much closer to giving Bonnaroo a run for their money, but I’m sticking with the 11 hour road trip.

  3. So now I’ve entered two different comments dissing this line up to various degrees, but both did not post for some reason now Im fearing they’re both going to show up and make me look like a crazy person.

  4. At first glance, this thread appears to be a few people weighing in on this festival’s lineup. Upon further investigation, it turns out it is just one crazy person talking to himself.
