Festival Dates: September 20, 2014 (Projected)
Virgin Mobile FreeFest in Colombia, Maryland is set apart from other music festivals in that it has been a free event since 2009 and organizers intend to keep it that way for many years to come. One way concert-goers earn free tickets, which typically “free out” in minutes, is by donating time to homeless youth shelters. Also known as Virgin Fest, it is the US and Canadian spinoff of V Festival in the UK. Organizers believe that concert goers will continue to pay-it-forward after having a good time at the free show by continuing to work with youths who are less fortunate.
Headliners for the Virgin Mobile FreeFest have included Cee Lo Green, Deadmau5, The Red Hot Chilli Peppers, The Black Keys, and The Who. Donations for the free event help provide education for homeless youth across the US who have been hard hit by the recession.
No lineup information for Virgin Mobile FreeFest 2014 has been released at this time.
