Ooh, boy. Cancel any plans you had on Oct. 6, pack up your bags and head to Columbia, MD for this year’s Virgin Mobile FreeFest. Unveiled today, the lineup far from disappoints.
Featuring two main stages and a dance forest, this year’s lineup boasts headliners Jack White, M83, Alabama Shakes, ZZ Top, Santigold, Ben Folds Five, NAS, Future Islands, The Dismemberment Plan, Portugal. The Man, Trampled By Turtles and Penguin Prison, among others, at Merriweather Post Pavilion.
Tickets to FreeFest are indeed free — if you act fast. A select number of tickets will go “on free” presale on Thursday, Aug. 23 if you are a member of Virgin Mobile or follow @virginmlive on Twitter. General admission tickets will be available at noon on Friday, Aug. 24.
FreeFest also encourages fans to give back at the time of ticket “purchase” by donating to RE*Generation, the festival’s initiative to end youth homelessness.
