This was my third year covering the Sweetlife Music and Food Festival and this was the first time I enjoyed myself, despite the third straight rainy day (this fest has horrible luck with the weather). The fest’s previous lineups had a lot of downtime built in but that was not he case this year. The mainstage was PACKED with great acts, inclding Phoenix and the Yeay Yeah Yeahs. Check it out…
