Today is a one day getaway, Virgin Mobile FreeFest takes place on the grounds of Merriweather Post Pavilion, a wooded haven in Columbia, Maryland–just miles away from Annapolis and Anne Arundel County.
We will be among the more than 50,000 avid fans who will be attending the largest FREE music festival in the country. Going strong for 8 years, and its 5th year as completely FREE, it has become a local staple with national roots.
As a result of FreeFest donations, producers were able to help the Sasha Bruce Youthwork open the doors to the RE*Generation House, a brand new transitional living center in Washington D.C. Donations not only keep the doors of this house open, but also underwrite specialized programming around urban farming and entrepreneurship.
Eye On Annapolis will be live blogging today from the festival grounds with photos, and hopefully interviews (praying to the tech gods). We have two photographers on site to capture the action as well as our new Music Editor, Kati Mayers. There are more than 20 bands playing today and we are most excited to see Black Joe Lewis, MGMT, The Avett Brothers, Vampire Weekend, Kaskade, Robin Thicke, Icona Pop, and Pretty Lights. Stay tuned and tune in!
