Some Virgin Mobile FreeFest tickets are still available

Go here and you can get one with a $10 donation to Virgin's Regeneration charity. Thanks, 600 Block, for the tip!

Sam, do you know if a line-up for Sunday has been released? Let's hope tropical storm danny doesn't get too close!

Cheryl, the lineup will be released tomorrow.

I hope it stays dry too.

Please, its going to rain and the headliners are weak. I hope everyone trying to sell the "Free" tickets on line get struck by lightning.

Free? How is it free when you have to pay $10 donation? I keep the laughter to myself

Please, its going to rain and the headliners are weak. I hope everyone trying to sell the "Free" tickets online get struck by lightning.

Quit hatin' Haters! How about all of the people who actually did volunteer their time to get tickets or all of the folks who are normally shut out of this type of event because they can't afford it? The blatant negativity of some blog commentors just doesn't make sense. Go [complain] in a mirror if like hearing yourself [complain].

I really, really hope "Dave the wave's" comment was number 16,000.

And not that I'm nearly as good a person as the volunteers, but I simply gave my tickets away to a distant friend that was desperate to see Blink (poor girl) but she couldn't get tickets before they were gone...I knew I could have made a buck on them, but I figured I wouldn't in the spirit of the fest.


you volunteered your time while I was sitting on my couch watching TV. I can shell out $10 to listen to the same crap you had to work for.

Sam, are we up to 16K yet?

Is that a mandatory donation, or a mandatory Ticketmaster service fee?
