Get ready to rock! And prepare to get wet.

The fourth annual Sweetlife Music and Food Festival, one of the area's largest fests, is Saturday at Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Md. The music -- headliners Phoenix and Passion Pit -- and food jamboree kicks off at noon and the rain and thunder will perform various sets throughout the day.

We've got the set times and the food truck info, along with tips about the weather, to make your Sweetlife experience as sweet as can be.

Here are the recently released set times. Plot out a good course of action for some of the bigger overlapping acts like Compton rapper Kendrick Lamar and indie breakout DIY group Youth Lagoon.

But be aware, The Weather Channel is calling for scattered thunderstorms throughout the afternoon, so leave the hipster sunglasses at home and seek shelter if you hear rumblings from the sky. The forecast also calls for rain all day and all night. Our suggestion: bring a poncho and ziplock bags so your smartphones don't get wet and you can Instagram as much of the festival as you possibly can.

The festival is also known for its variety of local beer and food, and this year's selection is no let down. Here is a list of the food and drink vendors who will be selling grub Saturday, available to general admission concertgoers, courtesy of Brightest Young Things:
