• Virgin Free Fest

    The Virgin Mobile Freefest, an event that happens at Merriweather Post Pavillion in MD, is in its fifth year and, amazingly, it's still free! The lineup is kind of a mixed bag, but with names like Vampire Weekend and Chvrches, it's still pretty solid. But like, it's free, so even if you only like a few of the bands on the bill, it's still worth it. And it's happening September 21! So, to recap: a free festival in a less sweaty month. Sounds good to me. Presale tickets for this event are available starting August 8 if you follow the event's Twitter and FB, and general admission tickets go on "sale" August 9. If you're in the Northeast and haven't had your fill of fests, give it a shot! —Katie
