Virgin FreeFest Lineup Announced
This year’s talent includes: M.I.A., Jimmy Eat World, T.I., Ludacris, LCD Soundsystem, Pavement, Yeasayer, the Temper Trap and Thievery Corporation.
Tickets to the 2010 Virgin Mobile FreeFest will be available to the public on www.ticketfly.com at 10 am EST on Saturday, July 24th. Virgin Mobile customers and previous Virgin Mobile Festival ticket holders from the past four years will be invited via text and email to a private “free-sale” (much like a pre-sale, except free) to be held Friday July 23. “Last year’s free festival was all about giving back to fans in the wake of a horrible economy,” said Ron Faris, director of brand experiences, Virgin Mobile USA.
This year it will be harder to get close to the main stage because there will be a fee for pavilion seats. Those VIP tickets are $125.
Stay tuned. DC After Five will have a bus for this trip just like last year.
