Big Names Headline Merriweather's Virgin Mobile FreeFest

ZZ Top, Jack White, Nas and Skrillex to headline free concert at Merriweather in October.


Bearded rockers ZZ Top, superstar Jack White, the prince of dubstep Skrillex, and famed rapper Nas are just some of the famous musicians coming to Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia as part of Virgin Mobile's annual FreeFest on October 6.

Virgin Mobile announced the full lineup of acts for the free music concert on Monday morning. Tickets will go on "sale" (even though they're free) on Aug. 24.

Here's the full lineup:

How to get tickets: Tickets will be avialable free on August 24 on Ticketfly.com. In order to get a ticket you must register for an account on their ticket serving using this link - http://bit.ly/TFlyAccount, according to Virginmobilelive.com.

Virgin Mobile Live will also have a pre-sale available on August 23 for their Twitter followers, previous attendees and Virgin mobile users. You can follow Virgin mobile on Twitter here - https://twitter.com/virginmlive

Last year, the pre-sale tickets sold out (or "freed-out") in 10 minutes.

Are you going to try to get tickets this year to FreeFest?

Maybe I'm out of the music scene, but the only group I ever heard of is ZZ Top

Really, not even Jack White, one half of the White Stripes? Seven Nation Army? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0J2QdDbelmY

I recognize five of those performers: Jack White, Skrillex, Nas, ZZ Top, and Ben Folds Five. Some are from 90's (Nas, Ben Folds Five), some from early 00's (White Stripes) and some are recent (Skrillex). Only ZZ Top is considered "classic" from the list, though.
