For years, the Virgin Mobile FreeFest has been the biggest annual concert with the most consistently impressive lineup in Maryland. Sweetgreen's Sweetlife: A Music and Food Festival has been a recent challenger since it held its first concert four years ago. And with today's release of this year's lineup, the battle for best local festival just got closer.

The Sweetlife Festival will return to Columbia's Merriweather Post Pavilion on May 11. The lineup was announced via the YouTube clip above. 

On the main stage:

Phoenix
Passion Pit
Kendrick Lamar
The Yeah Yeah Yeahs
Gary Clark Jr.
Solange
Lindsey Stirling

On the Treehouse stage:

Holy Ghost!
Youth Lagoon
Haerts
Robert Delong
MS MR
Twenty One Pilots

That's a strong lineup, especially compared to last year's combination of Avicii, Kid Cudi and the Shins. "AHHHHH!!!!!!!!! BEST SWEETLIFE EVER!!!!!!!!" was the first comment left on the YouTube video's page.

Lawn tickets will cost $75, Pavilion tickets, with open seating and pit access, are $95 and VIP tickets are $150. VIP tickets come with special viewing areas, covered cabana lounges, special food and drink offerings and free filtered water.

Tickets, available at Ticketfly, go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. Sweetgreen will release a presale code to its Instagram followers tonight at 9 p.m. Those with the code will be able to buy presale tickets on Wednesday starting at 10 a.m.
