The wait is over, guys. Sir Richard Branson announced the line-up for the hottest free rock concert in town -- that’s complete with fireworks and a gigantic Ferris wheel (Did we really expect anything less from the extravagant billionaire?).
The Virgin Mobile FreeFest kicks off Sept. 10 at the Merriweather Post Pavilion (10475 Little Patuxent Parkway, Columbia, Md.).
Those who will be performing on the two main stages include: TV on the Radio, The Black Keys, Cee Lo Green, Deadmau5, Bombay Bicycle Club, Cut Copy, Patti Smith, Okkervil River, Big Sean, Grace Potter & The Nocturnals, Alberta Cross, Two Door Cinema Club, and Empire of the Sun.
Promoters are also bringing back Dance Forest, which will include the Teddybears, Eclectic Method, !!!, Ghostland Observatory, James Murphy, Porter Robinson and Calvin Harris.
The totally free tickets will be given away on the Virgin Mobile Live Facebook page this Friday, July 15, at 10 a.m. Of course, fans must first “like" the page. You can buy tickets that’ll get you early admission and drink specials here.
