The official line-up announcement has been made for this year’s Sweetlife Festival 2013 and boasts a huge list of artists/bands.

Coming along for the event as well are Kendrick Lamar, Gary Clark Jr., Solange, Youth Lagoon, Holy Ghost!, MS MR, and Robert DeLong.

General admission, pavilion/pit access, and VIP tickets go on sale February 8 (Friday).
