The line-up plucks a lot of big names from various genres. Among the highlights: EDM star Avicii , rap phenom Kid Cudi, soft-rock royals the Shins , recent chart-toppers fun., breakout Harlem rapper A$AP Rocky and more than a dozen others. The Going Out Guide blog has a preview of the festival, including a Spotify playlist with songs from recommended acts.

It’ll be the second year the Sweetlife Festival touches down at Merriweather. Last year’s show was headlined by the Strokes. The first year, it was held in a parking lot behind Sweetgreen’s Dupont Circle location.
