The Free Fest is a concert given to help homeless youth across America. Last year, this concert raised $80,000, 30,000 volunteer hours, and provided 7,000 outreach kits to help the cause. Virgin Mobile is picking up the tickets–all they ask is that everyone else pick up the karma!
Organizers are asking for a $5 donation at the gate to help the cause and in return will offer a CD for concert goers.
The event is sold out. Tickets were available for free online on July 24, 2010 and sold out in less than 30 minutes. Some organizations and radio stations may be giving them away. And there are some VIP tickets still available for purchase for $125 each.
