Ron Faris, head of brand marketing, Virgin Mobile USA said:
“We’ve had a really big year at Virgin. 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.”
Following last year’s success, fans will be encouraged to donate to The RE*Generation, Virgin Mobile’s campaign 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.
Check out the line-up and let us know if you’ve been able to check that Summer Concert off of your list!
