    Free! Free! Free! Free music is good. Free live music is even better!

    This year's Virgin Mobile FreeFest will be held on Saturday, Oct. 6, at Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, MD. That's a great venue. If you live nearby, we encourage you to go, as we love that place.

    The main stage will boast the likes of 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. There also will be a Dance Forest for electronic artists. A Dance Forest? We LOVE it . That sounds so earthy and a great way to "enjoy" oneself. Uh huh.

    Tickets to the 2012 Virgin Mobile FreeFest presented by LG will go "On Free" to the public at noon EST on Friday, Aug. 24, via ticketfly.com. Fans who choose to follow Virgin Mobile Live on Twitter will see a link to participate in the private presale, which will be held Aug. 23.

    Who's going to Virgin Mobile FreeFest?
