Like food as much as you like music? Then keep reading. We're very excited to share with you that we've teamed up with the Sweetlife Food and Music Festival happening on Saturday, April 28, at the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Maryland, to bring you some of the best eats you'll find at a music festival. The Sweetlife folks had already done some of the spade work, but we managed to fill out the dance card with some of our favorite purveyors.
First, we'll tell you about the music. The Shins, Kid Cudi, Fun, Explosions in the Sky, Avicii, A$AP Rocky, and more bands will all be there performing on two stages throughout the day at the outdoor venue alongside an equally awesome line-up of food. Ready for it?
Here's a taste:
Shake Shack burger
Serious Eats' muffaletta sandwich prepared by The Food Lab's J. Kenji Lopez-Alt
DCCK Organic PB&J w/ local milk
Sweetgreen Salad Pop Up

The Food Lab's J. Kenji Lopez-Alt himself will be there making our seriously delicious muffulettas, which you'll find the recipe to in the Serious Eats book. Ed, Erin, and Leandra will be there jamming with festivalgoers too.
