Virgin Mobile Free Fest, was one of the best ways to conclude our Spring/Summer festival run. It felt magical just being at Merriweather Post Pavilion, with all it’s musical history. All the greats have preformed here, Led Zeppelin, The Who, The Grateful Dead, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, and Bob Dylan just to name a few.
I could not believe how well organized this entire festival was. It took all of 10 min to park & get through the gate. The festival grounds were full of luscious over grown trees proving plenty of shade. Besides the trees, there was no shortage of shade with their setup of huge tepees, and wooden loft like bed areas.
LCD Soundsysytem made the entire trip worth it. Their dancetastic set blew me away, and being front row made it that much better! Overall, I could not have asked for a better day, and I thank Virgin Mobile for making this happen.
