Virgin Mobile FreeFest to return to Merriweather
The Virgin Mobile FreeFest will be back for another year at Merriweather Post Pavilion, organizers confirmed today.
And yes, as the name implies, it will be free again.
Though no headliners or dates have been picked yet, the festival is sure to be one of the region's biggest live music events.
Last year, a capacity crowd flooded the Columbia amphitheater to see bands such as Weezer, Blink-182 and Franz Ferdinand ...
This year, the festival will once again partner with charities to raise money and awareness for youth homelessness. Last year, volunteers donated 30,000 hours and $80,000 in exchange for tickets to the festival.
"That added a whole new dimension and a sense of pride," Schaefer said.
