Virgin Mobile’s 2012 “FreeFest”: Jack White and Skrillex to Headline
You know the more cool shows and stuff that get’s announced out of Maryland and Delaware, the more I think it wouldn’t be so bad to head down there from time to time-even if it’s a 5+ hour drive from New York City.
Returning to the to Merriweather Post Pavilion in Maryland on October 6th, will be the “Virgin Mobile FreeFest” . 2012 Festival favorites Jack White and Skrillex top the list of acts, which also features the likes of Nas (who’s new album Life is Good, is indeed awesome), M83, Ben Folds Five and ZZ Top.
This festival contains two main stages and we’ve got the full list of acts below. Now let’s talk about the title of “Freefest” :
-Free tickets to the festival will be available to the public on August 24th at 12PM (Noon) over at Ticketfly.
-Freefest has a limited amount of “Freemium Packages ,” that can get you admission into the festival but require a ‘charitable donation’ to Virgin Mobile USA’s Youth Homelessness Initiatives,. With that you get a FreeFest T-shirt, a souvenir cup (a cup that includes free fountain drinks for the duration of the festival) as well as early admission to the grounds. You can grab some Freemium tickets at Ticketfly or the box offices at the 9:30 Club as well as the Merriweather Post Pavilion.
So the only question left, is who’s driving this writer??
