Maryland's Sweetlife Festival returns for its seventh year this Saturday (5/14) at Merriweather Post Pavilion. This year's lineup is much shorter than last year's, as it's only one day instead of two, but there's still plenty worth checking out.

The fest, which still has tickets available, is divided between three stages and most of what we're interested in is happening on the Main and Treehouse stages. Brooklyn's own DIIV, who aren't missing from many fest lineups this year, kick off the main stage at 1 PM. After that, it's genre-defying bassist/producer/singer Thundercat. The Flying Lotus/Kamasi Washington/Kendrick Lamar collaborator is playing the Treehouse stage at 1:55 PM.

Then while you're on your lunch break, you'll have an important decision to make: stay at the Treehouse stage and wait for rapper Vince Staples' set at 3:10 PM, or go see Mac DeMarco at 2:50---or take the risk and try to see both.

At 4 PM, Queens of the Stone Age associates Eagles of Death Metal, who have been in the news a lot lately (for being against gun control after surviving the horrible Bataclan attack, and for someone losing an ear at their recent Toronto show) (seriously), are taking the Main stage. After that, head to the Treehouse stage for a dance party with Shamir at 4:35 PM.

At 5:15, you get to see Blondie on the main stage, who are working on their 11th album which'll be co-produced by St. Vincent and John Congleton. Hopefully we'll hear a preview of their new material. Then Drake signee/producer PARTYNEXTDOOR takes the Treehouse stage at 6 PM.

You'll have to rush to the main stage afterwards to see Grimes. Her live shows are great and so is last year's album Art Angels, so you won't want to miss that.

By the end of the fest, there aren't as many choices. Australian electronic musician/producer Flume will be at the Treehouse stage at 7:30 PM and if you're in the mood to see what all the fuss is about with The 1975, head to the main stage by 8 PM to see them.
