TICKET GIVEAWAY: Sweetlife Festival presented by Sweetgreen ft/ Hot Chip (DJ Set)
by Winston "Stone" Ford
Thanks to our friends at SweetGreen, we’re giving away 10 (yes, 10!) tickets to their annual Sweetlife festival, taking place behind Sweetgreen’s Dupont Circle store in Washington, DC on April 24th. The line-up includes Hot Chip and The Love Language, in addition to Couch Sessions favorites US Royalty, Will Eastman, and Matthew Hemerlein.
If you didn’t know, DC-based Sweetgreen came onto the scene in 2007, touting sustainable practices, local sourcing, composting, and running their stores on alternative energy, bringing a new variety food retailer into the area. Since then, the company has expanded to multiple locations in DC, Maryland, and Virgina. However, being “green” to them is not just a fad, it’s a part of their philosophy.
The DC Sweetlife Festival is set to bring a new dimension to the already vibrant local music scene. Festival goers are encouraged to donate at the time they sign up to receive tickets, and proceeds from the Sweetlife Festival will benefit the DC Farm To School Network, an organization committed to connecting schools (K-12) with local farms.
