FreeFest Returning

I.M.P.‘s Seth Hurwitz confirms that there will be a third Virgin Mobile FreeFest, the single-day, three-stage event that grew out of the Virgin Festival and transformed into a free concert in 2009.

Dates and lineups aren’t confirmed, but the festival is again expected to take place at the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Md., in late summer or early fall.

The past two VFFs, sponsored by Virgin Mobile, Kyocera, Toyota and many others, quickly distributed their allotments of free tickets, and hundreds of others earned VIP admission with volunteer work for selected organizations fighting youth homelessness.
