Washington D.C.'s Sweetlife Festival has announced its 2016 lineup. The one-day festival makes the most of its one-day format, the festival will be headlined by The 1975, Halsey, Flume and Grimes.

R&B and funk will be brought by Thundercat, Shamir and PartyNextDoor, while the bulk of the lineup will be concentrated on rock and indie will The 1975, Halsey, Blondie, DIIV, Wolf Alice and Mac Demarco.
Sweetlife will take place on Saturday May 14 at the Merriweather Post Pavilion, just outside of Washington, D.C. in Columbia, Maryland.
