Sweetlife Festival 2012: The Shins, Avicii, Zola Jesus And More (PHOTOS)

WASHINGTON -- A music festival staged by a fast-casual salad and frozen yogurt eatery is no longer strange.

Now in its third year, the Sweetlife Festival, sponsored by Sweetgreen, is shaping up to be a reliable start of the summer festival season for the D.C. area. A good mix of acts, all up and coming, ensure that at least something new will be gracing the stage at the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Md.

Let's just hope it doesn't rain like last year.

Tickets and more can be found at Sweetlifefestival.com.
