Sweetlife Festival is an annual celebration of music, wholesome food, and thoughtful living, hosted by sweetgreen and located directly between Washington DC and Baltimore where fans of music and sustainability can experience the forefront of both cultural movements in one interactive environment. 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.

"This festival is bringing us one step closer to realizing our vision for the 'sweetlife'," said Jonathan Neman, co-founder of sweetgreen with Nathaniel Ru and Nicolas Jammet. "We're excited to bring an event like this to Washington DC, and to bring together two of the most important aspects of the sweetlife: sustainable food and live music. This year's Sweetlife Festival is a huge leap from last year--from the days DJing block parties in the parking lot of our Dupont Circle sweetgreen location to now being at one of the most legendary venues in the country, not to mention with one of our favorite bands of all time."
