Here’s something to take your mind off the possible impending snowstorm: It’s time to get excited for outdoor-concert season, with the announcement of the lineup for this year’s Sweetlife festival, scheduled for May 10 at Merriweather Post Pavilion. The main headliners are Foster the People, whose latest album, Supermodel, comes out March 18; and Lana Del Rey, in case you have the urge to hear that song from The Great Gatsby soundtrack live. On the rap front is 2 Chainz, making a second stop in Washington after his show at 9:30 Club on March 24, and indie rockers Fitz and the Tantrums return to the festival a second time (they also played it in 2012).
Other acts include suddenly-everywhere Brit band Bastille, the DC-based two-piece GEMS, Bombay Bicycle Club, Chromeo, Spirit Animal, and more. Check out the full lineup on the festival’s website.
