Today the lineup for the 2012 Virgin Mobile FreeFest presented by LG was announced by select fans who took part in a contest to guess the lineup on Virgin Mobile’s Twitter page (@virginmlive). The Billboard award-winning festival, known for the inventive and unexpected experience in addition to unforgettable performances, will be hosted again for free. The festival will feature some of the most talked about, most appreciated, most relevant and most eclectic artists – filling two Main Stages and the Dance Forest.

Virgin Mobile FreeFest presented by LG will be held Saturday, Oct. 6, at Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Md. The lineup on the Main Stages includes Jack White, Skrillex, M83, NAS, ZZ Top, Santigold, Alabama Shakes, Ben Folds Five, The Dismemberment Plan, Allen Stone, Trampled by Turtles, Portugal. The Man, Das Racist, Future Islands and Justin Jones. The Dance Forest will feature Above & Beyond, Porter & Zedd (Back to Back), Thomas Gold, Nervo, Alvin Risk and Penguin Prison, plus others to be announced. You can view the photo gallery of fans announcing the lineup on Virgin Mobile Live.

“After three years of crazy press and feedback, bands start to line up early to be on the ‘It-List,’” said Seth Hurwitz, chairman of I.M.P. and Virgin Mobile FreeFest producer. “Fortunately, since the tickets go in minutes, we can wait until much later than most festivals to book the absolute best stories of the moment.”

How to get tickets to FreeFest

Tickets to the 2012 Virgin Mobile FreeFest presented by LG will go “On Free” to the public at noon (EDT) Friday, Aug. 24, via ticketfly.com. Fans who choose to follow Virgin Mobile Live on Twitter (@virginmlive) will see a link to participate in the private presale, which will be held Thursday, Aug. 23. Virgin Mobile customers and prior Virgin Mobile Festival ticket buyers will get special notification of the presale in advance as well.

“We’ve had a really big year at Virgin,” said Ron Faris, head of brand marketing, Virgin Mobile USA. “Now it’s time to celebrate. FreeFest is back – bigger than ever. We can’t wait to share this free day of music with all our fans, especially the ones who helped us announce it.”

As always, fans will be encouraged to make a donation to The RE*Generation, Virgin Mobile’s initiative to end youth homelessness. Proceeds raised to date built Virgin Mobile’s new “RE*Generation House,” a homeless youth shelter developed by Sasha Bruce Youthwork. This year’s donations will open the house and provide support to a community of homeless youth. More details about this will follow shortly.

Last year Virgin Mobile FreeFest’s free tickets were scooped up in just minutes, and 50,000 people attended. In keeping with the “free” mantra, Ticketfly is waiving all service charges on free tickets when fans pick them up at Merriweather or the 9:30 Club in Washington, D.C., or print their tickets at home.

There will be a limited number of FreeFest “FREEMIUM PACKAGES,” which include admission to the festival, a charitable donation to Virgin Mobile USA’s youth homelessness initiatives, a FreeFest T-shirt, a souvenir cup that comes with free fountain drinks throughout the festival, and early admission to the grounds. FREEMIUM tickets are available via Ticketfly or at the 9:30 Club and Merriweather Post Pavilion box offices.

“Virgin Mobile FreeFest is one of the biggest, most talked about music festivals of the year, and LG is thrilled to be part of this cultural phenomenon,” said Tim O’Brien, vice president of mobile phone brand marketing for LG Electronics USA.

9:30 Records is proud to announce that Justin Jones will be playing with Badly Drawn Boy for eleven dates. Justin grew up in a collection of cabins, trailers, and campers known as Rawley Springs, VA. He believes, like many musicians, that in a career like theirs, you don’t do it for the money, because there is no backup plan. After living in Charlottesville, VA writing music, he used DC as a jumping off point for NYC. After some troubled years, during which he stopped writing songs, he met the woman that would become his wife and started right back where he had left off four years before. From there, he found a band with which he could explore his own sound. A few records hodgepodged with country tunes, soulful ballads, and southern rock songs later, he stripped the band down to what he calls “the essentials.” From there, Justin and his band chose the five songs they thought best fit where they were after a year of touring and playing together. Justin said the only way they saw to put on a record what they really sounded like, was to record the whole thing live. Justin gave the five song record to his manager Seth Hurwitz, who started a record label named 9:30 Records after his own 9:30 Club, where Justin happens to be a bartender.
