Avicii, Kid Cudi and the Shins headlined the Sweetlife Music Festival at Merriweather Post Pavilion on Saturday. Reporter Vivienne Machi reviews the event. If the Sweetlife Festival were an actual sweet, I'd vote for a lemon bar: smooth, luscious, with only a few chunks of sour, yet on the whole thoroughly enjoyable. For the second year in a row, music lovers from around the state and beyond gathered through rain and patches of sun to celebrate some of the biggest names in dance and electronic music, and, to a lesser degree, sustainability, environmental consciousness and all that jazz.

It’s a strange day to be a Kid Cudi fan. With the release of “Perfect is the Word,” the Cleveland rapper has officially taken the ill-advised route of ditching hip-hop for droning, dreary rock ‘n’ roll. Cudi’s fascination with rock is nothing new (his best song, “Pursuit of Happiness,” features MGMT and Ratatat, while “Erase Me” is built around cheesy Weezer guitars), but “Perfect is the Word” is an entirely different, ultimately ugly beast. Along with producer Dot Da Genius, Cudder is fronting a rock project titled 2 Be Continuum (clearly the music isn’t the only problem)

Finally, a no-brainer. Kicking of Merriweather Post Pavilion's season, the Sweetlife Food and Music Festival boasts an eclectic, solid lineup of established acts and rising talents. In chronological order, here are the five acts I suggest finding time for on Saturday: Action Bronson (12:25 p.m., Treehouse) Before heading over to the main stage for Fun., check out a few songs from this Albanian-American star-in-waiting. If you like raps about high-end food, left-field pop references and other atypical topics for hip-hop, Action Bronson will make your day. His latest mixtape, "Blue Chips,"  is an intoxicatingly fresh listen.

Before finishing second on "The Voice," 24-year-old Dia Frampton was struggling for money and relevancy as a member of the emo-folk group Meg & Dia. Last April, Frampton, along with her sister Meg, released the band's fourth album, "Cocoon," without a label and to little fanfare. On a whim, Frampton tried out for NBC's new reality singing competition as a way to get the word out for "Cocoon" … except Frampton won over the ears and hearts of the audience and her coach, country star Blake Shelton.

If the Ocean City city council has its way, the music headliner at this year's Dew Tour will be less Kid Cudi and more Demi Lovato, or worse. Last week, t he city council approved the return of Dew Tour, the skateboarding, BMX and surfing competition that takes over the boardwalk for four days starting August 16. The approval from the city council was a foregone conclusion. In its debut at Ocean City last August, Dew Tour brought over 70,000 people and lots of tourism money to the resort town.
