Virgin FreeFest

Virginfest actually starts at noon, but a few of us are meeting at the Columbia Mall Foodcourt across the street at 11 AM, near McDonalds. Around 11:45 we can walk across the street to the Festival. Or feel free to just say "Hi" if you see one of us there :)

Mall at Columbia's address:

10300 Little Patuxent Parkway Columbia, MD 21044

Text me at[masked] before 4 if you want to meet up.

I've also heard that parking is horrible at this event, it might be easier to park at the mall and just walk over.

This page has the full line-up:

    Hopefully everyone had a great time! Sorry to those I was texting my phone died and I couldn't find a place to charge

    October 7, 2012

    • Kate

      Mine too. A charging station would have been nice. And water that doesn't cost $4. Otherwise, great time.

    FreeFest was cool. Organization was bad.

    We got off the exit at around 4 and it's taken 3 hours to get here, and we still aren't at a parking structure.

    October 6, 2012

  • Joei

    Me too! Been on this exit for like 20min!!

    October 6, 2012

      October 6, 2012

    • Andy

      A few of us are meeting up at Mickey-d's in the mall across the st, then walking over to the festival. It also might be easier to find parking at the mall then at the festival.

      October 6, 2012

  • Dany

    October 6, 2012

    October 5, 2012

    Lots of tickets on CL. Can anyone please tell me whether or not these tickets could be non-legit?

    October 5, 2012

  • Stacy

    Hi all, sorry I didn't realize that there was no official event host for this event! I am planning on going, but was not planning on organizing everyone since I won't be there till late.

    Is someone willing to be the point-of-contact throughout the day? I will make you the official host and you'll be able to email all the yes RSVPs in one email with your phone number and the general plan.

    I will email out my phone number but please note I won't be there at the festival until about 4 pm.

    October 5, 2012

    Do you guys have an idea if/where you want to meet up before-hand?

    August 25, 2012

    • Andy

      Well, Kervin, How about the McDonalds at the mall ;) Downstairs there is a food court that has a Mcdonalds and other places to eat. We can grab a quick bite and then head off to the music-fest.

      October 2, 2012

    • Kervin C.

      sounds good

      October 5, 2012

  • Brian Julio M.

    I happen to have an extra ticket just email me [masked]

    October 5, 2012

  • Troy

    I could give three or four people a ride.

    Do they charge for parking around there or something?

    October 5, 2012

    • Andrew C.

      Parking is free, but fills up rather quickly. It's best to carpool if possible. Where do you live?

      October 5, 2012

    • Julia S.

      no charge for parking. where are you loc/can i hitch a ride?

      October 5, 2012

  • Meredith

    Oh, and I guess that I have room in my car for up to three individuals, provided that you can get to the closest metro stop to my house!

    October 5, 2012

    • Parteesh

      Hey Meredith, What's the closest metro stop to your house?

      October 5, 2012

    For anyone who needs a ride of doesn't feel like driving, my friends and I did this last year and are doing it again. The bus picks up in multiple locTtions, you can bring drinks and food and leave anything you don't want to carry at the festival on the bus because you get picked up after the show. Hope this helps!

      That's crazy! Sorry to hear that. To clarify, I took the Ballston bus and we actually got to Merriweather early and our driver stayed in a nearby lot for the day in case we needed anything. I guess my advice to anyone who's considering it would be to do your homework for the stop you'll use... Good luck!

      Me too, if the general tickets are gone too quickly. A portion of the money goes to a good cause.

      Exactly! I'm all for a good cause.

    It's almost noon. Start your clicking!

    August 24, 2012

    • Evan

      Oh, wow. My friend tried to get his less than a minute after I got my tickets, and they were all gone by then. Basically, that was a 1 minute window to get them.

      August 24, 2012

    • Andy

      I was able to get 2, but both my roomates didn't get any tickets. This means the both of them will have to battle to the death for my extra ticket! :)

    I learned my lesson when I missed the show a couple years ago. What I do is log on to my computer about 15 minutes early to get everything set up. Then I open the link at 11:59 and keep clicking refresh until the right page shows up.

    August 23, 2012

    • Andy

      Will try this tomorrow. If not I'll try purchaising some freemium tickets.
