I can not understand why they put the two main acts on at the same time!?! Most people that go to a festival want to see EVERYONE play.

How long do you think it will take to be able to see everyone play? its only a 2 day concert remember and these artists like taking their time with their sets.

Wow, I’m pretty disappointed by the way the headliners overlap…I wouldn’t have made plans to go if I knew I had to choose between the big names. I figured they would have a main stage with the headliners, and a secondary stage with the less popular artists.

Ha, I'm glad the headliners overlap. That means I don't have to suffer through Kanye West just to hear NIN. Wish this was more like HFStival used to be back in the day, nothing but rock bands. I'll be happy parking myself at the north stage on Sunday, except for when the Black Keys play at the south end.

Oh THERE you are rockchick - hiding over here?? Settled on a name finally? I'll see you at the North Stage (except for Dylan). Girlfight to NIN? Wooooosh!

NIN, STP, Lil Wayne, Lupe Fiasco, and Shudder to Think! They were awesome i can't wait to see them in New Orleans. The voodoo lineup is so much better than the virgina fest lineup and you get all the goodness of being in New Orleans!

So long Baltimore.... Plans are already underway to have next year's Virgin Festival, and subsequent festivals in D.C.
