Virgin Mobile FreeFest Announces 2013 Lineup
The lineup for the 2013 Virgin Mobile FreeFest has been announced, and the headliners include Vampire Weekend, The Avett Brothers, Pretty Lights and Robin Thicke.
The one-day event will take place on Sept. 21 at the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Md. The event will also boast performances by MGMT, Chvrches, Washed Out, Sky Ferreira, Icona Pop, City and Colour and many more.
The festival, which (as its name suggests) has been presented free of charge for the past four years, will feature two stages, a rave-style dance tent and some other “mind-bending” attractions, according to the FreeFest website.
Tickets will be “on free” Aug. 9 at noon EST on TicketFly, with a special pre-sale being held a day earlier for Virgin Mobile customers, Facebook friends and Twitter followers as well as previous Virgin Mobile festival ticket buyers. The event is also offering a FreeFest Premium package, which includes a t-shirt and a refillable souvenir cup and will guarantee admission into the festival in the event of event capacity being reached.
For the full lineup, check out the image below, and if you are planning to go to the festival, make sure to secure your tickets asap. Tickets to the 2011 festival are reported to have “freed out” in a little over five minutes.
