Virgin Mobile FreeFest 2013
As if we didn't already know that Richard Branson was a genius, Virgin Mobile FreeFest is back for its fifth year! On Saturday, September 21 at Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Maryland, a lineup of mostly indie promotions will play to the crowds. Acts this year include MGMT, Washed Out, The Avett Brothers, CHVRCHES, Icona Pop, Sky Ferreira, Robin Thicke, Pretty Lights, Kaskade, and more. And the best part? It's free. Yep, free (if you couldn't tell from the name). Want tickets (if it's for free, it's for me)? They go on "sale" to the general public August 9 at noon, and you better get on that site at noon, because these puppies go fast. A Twitter and Facebook presale will start August 8 at noon sharp, as well. Want to pay money? Well, you can - to the benefit of others. Premium packages that guarantee admission will be available, and these contributions go to the Sasha Bruce Re*Generation House for homeless youth.
Virgin Mobile FreeFest is actually a spin-off of the very popular V Festival in the United Kingdom. Richard Branson started the concert series, announcing inaugural shows in 2006 at Toronto Island Park in Toronto and Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Maryland. Tickets to the shows commonly "free out" within minutes every year.
