Jack White, ZZ Top and Skrillex headline Virgin Free Fest

Virgin Freefest, October 6th, 2012

Tickets for the massively huge – and massively free – fall music festival at Merriweather Post Pavilion put on by Virgin Mobile, go on “sale” (er, go on free) Friday the 24th at 12pm. Headlining the main stage this year are Jack White, Santigold, Das Racist, Ben Folds Five and Portgual. The Man.  Also showing up are Skrillex, ZZ Top, Nas, Alabama Shakes, Future Islands and Justin Jones.  DC favorites The Dismemberment Plan are also on the bill, and given the reports of new material, that’s one that D-Plan fans are going to want to hit. 

If you follow the @virginmlive twitter account, you’ll be able to access the pre-sale on the 23rd. See the sweet announcement starring fans of the festival online, too.

I live and work in the District of Columbia. I write at We Love DC, a blog I helped start, I work at Technolutionary, a company I helped start, and I’m happy doing both. I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, and gardening. I grow a mean pepper, keep a clean scorebook, and wash the dishes when I’m done. Read Why I Love DC.

  1. So great Ben Folds Five is reuniting, I can’t wait to hear their new album…so far, I’m loving the single Do It Anyway.

  2. Such a ridiculous line up… Ben Folds?! When did he come back? Can’t wait for the album in September, hope I can catch him live. I found a list of dates on Idolator http://bit.ly/Noj3vn
