What bands would you like to see at Virgin FreeFest 2011?
Virgin Mobile sent around a cryptic mass e-mail last week vaguely alluding to the return of its annual music festival here in Maryland.
It doesn't say when FreeFest will return or where it'll be held or if it'll stay free again this year. Underneath the bold banner "FreeFest is back" it just says, "Like us on Facebook for exclusive updates." How conveniently synergistic.
IMP, the concert promoter that handles the festival, didn't respond to questions about the e-mailed tease; SXSW is likely to blame.
The e-mail, though, suggests an announcement of some kind is imminent. Most likely, it'll be a confirmation that the festival will return to Merriweather Post Pavilion. That's what happened around this time last year.
While the line-up probably won't be announced until early summer, most likely around July, it's time to come up with your fantasy line-up.
Who would you like to see at Virgin Mobile FreeFest this year? Me? I would settle for a quiet, low-key pairing of Janelle Monae and Prince.
