The Virgin Mobile Freefest date has been officially dropped! It is sure to be stellar considering last year’s support which included Skrillex, Above & Beyond, Nervo, Porter Robinson, and Zedd. The location will be the same, taking place at Merriweather Post Pavillion in Colombia, MD about 25 minutes outside Baltimore. Last year’s fest containted three stages, with one named “The Dance Forest”, which was specifically tailored to all dance acts.

 

Originally known just as “The V”, The Virgin Mobile Free fest has taken place since 2006. The objective of the festival is to give back and support good causes through fundraising. All of the proceeds of this years fest will go towards aiding the Youth Homeless in Washington D.C. It is asked that each attendee provide a 10 dollar donation to help make up for the costs, but of course, this is only asked. If you live anywhere remotely near Baltimore, this festival will be worth the trek. With free tickets and huge names, this festival has become one of the most popular single-day festivals in recent years.
