Ever consider the ecological impact of music festivals? Thousands of people driving around the country, buying food and drinks, not to mention all those lights and amps to power. Sweetgreen, a chic and sustainable food vendor in the D.C. area, has presented a solution. Sweetlife, an eco-friendly, destination festival (May 11th, 2013 at Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Maryland) is the perfect place to celebrate music, food, and sustainable living. The line-up includes great artists like Phoenix, Passion Pit, Kendrick Lamar, and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, as well as emerging artists Solange, Youth Lagoon, Foxygen, and MS MR (see the full line-up below).
Not only is the line-up substantial, but the festival itself is carbon-neutral. Sweetlife will be solar-powered and there will be plenty of compost and recycling bins. Good-bye guilt! No more cognitive dissonance for being apart of a larger than life festival. Buy your tickets to Sweetlife ($75-$150).
Now that you’ve got tickets, how are you going to get there? Don’t want to ride solo in your gas-guzzling SUV? Sweetlife has your back. Rock & Bus will provide festival-goers with affordable luxury transportation, with pickup locations available throughout the region. So round up your friends and reserve your seats today!
