Looks like Virgin Free Fest is happening after all. After a summer drought of news about the annual music festival, organizers today announced the free concert event will return to Merriweather Post Pavilion October 6.
The performers have yet to be announced, but if last year’s lineup (The Black Keys, Cee-Lo, TV on the Radio, and Patti Smith) are any indication, it should be dynamite.
Whatever scant information has been released already can be found here. Apparently, more details will be released via Twitter in the coming days and Virgin Mobile is encouraging its Twitter follows to guess the lineup for a chance to win tickets.
It sounds like the booking decisions have already been made, but if not, may we make a suggestion? It sure would be sweet to see Virgin Fest reel in some Charm City bands, currently on tour, like Beach House, Dan Deacon, or Rye Rye ont he bill.
