The Strokes to Headline 2011 Sweetlife Festival


The Strokes
sweetgreen, known for its network of sustainable eateries throughout the northeast, is bringing the Sweetlife back to the Capital region this summer, and announced today that The Strokes will headline the annual Sweetlife Festival. The festival is scheduled for Saturday, April 30 at Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, MD. Head over to now to sign up to receive pre-sale notification and additional band announcements in the days to come.

The Strokes' headlining announcement supports the band's forthcoming studio album Angles. Recently released for pre-order, the album is the band's first in more than five years. Sweetlife Festival is one of a handful of appearances the band is scheduled to make in 2011, and the only in the mid-Atlantic region.

As an extension of the brand's commitment to sourcing seasonal, local food for each of its locations in Washington and Philadelphia and promoting healthy, sustainable living, sweetgreen is partnering with the Jamie Oliver Food Foundation, which was established to fight obesity and promote better dietary health through food education and cooking skills. A portion of the festival's proceeds will be donated to the celebrity chef's foundation.
