Still no news about the Virgin Mobile Festival
Rumors have been flying for months about where the Virgin Mobile Festival will take place -- if it happens at all.
Organizers said they'd have announcements by April.
No news came.
Then they said they'd release the dates by mid-May.
Here we are almost into June and nothing has been announced yet.
I've gotten numerous e-mails from curious readers, and I keep having to tell them I've got no news for them.
If the festival moves to Merriweather, and it's looking more and more like it will, I predict a much more scaled-back version ...
If I had to wage a gander, I'd put my money on Virgin Mobile Festival being a one-day event this year, probably in late August, with a mainstream rock band as the headliner.
That's just my guess.
But I hope we hear something soon either way. It would be sad to see the Virgin Mobile Festival shrink rather than grow, but it hasn't been the best year ever for festivals.
