Sweetlife 2013: A Music and Food Festival is organized by Sweetgreen, a network of eco-friendly and sustainability-focused health food eateries.
"What started out as a fun little idea of bringing a bunch of likeminded bands to a parking lot in DuPont Circle, has now blossomed into a massive multi-stage event with 18,000 attendees that takes place in one of the most famous amphitheaters in the country, creating, in effect, a platform from which to promote healthy living while celebrating with a wonderfully eclectic lineup of some of today’s most cutting edge artists," according to an official statement from Sweetgreen. The single-day event will also feature food from many other local vendors and restaurants.
Tickets go on sale through Ticketfly on February 8 at 10 a.m. EST. General admission passes range from $75 to $95, while VIP access — which comes with complimentary food and drinks, as well as special seating arrangements — costs $150. Anyone who follows Sweetgreen's Instagram account will receive a presale code on February 5 at 9 p.m. EST, and be able to buy tickets on February 6 at 10 a.m. EST.
