The Strokes to Headline 2011 Sweetlife Festival
AT MERRIWEATHER POST PAVILLION, COLUMBIA, MD
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.
