Since the very first sweetgreen opened in 2007, music has been a core component of the brand’s culture. The idea for the sweetlife festival began as a small, local event. In 2010, with the opening of their second location in Dupont Circle (Washington, D.C.), the three founders invited a handful of local, indie bands to perform in the parking lot. What started as a 500-person gathering has blossomed into one of the region’s largest and most anticipated music and food festivals, a two-stage event with over 23,000 attendees in one of the most famous amphitheatres in the country. Proceeds from sweetlife support “sweetgreen in schools,” an educational program created by sweetgreen to introduce kids to the benefits of healthy eating and nutrition.


sweetgreen is the culinary lifestyle brand dedicated to smartly-sourced, seasonal food, and the balance between work, life, food and community. Founded in 2007 by Nicolas Jammet, Jonathan Neman and Nathaniel Ru, the brand stands for a commitment to delicious, healthy and smartly-sourced food, working with like-minded farmers and growers who value sustainability and thoughtful practices. The first restaurant, a 560-square foot space in Georgetown, opened in August 2007. Since then, sweetgreen has grown to 29 restaurants throughout Washington, D.C., Virginia, Maryland, Philadelphia, Boston and New York City. In addition to a core selection of seasonal salads, sweetgreen’s menu includes grain bowls, soups and house-made beverages.
