Virgin Mobile Festival – August 9th, 10th

On August 9th and 10th, the Virgin Mobile Festival returns to Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Maryland

“The response from the first two festivals has been extraordinary,” said Virgin Group Founder and Chairman Sir Richard Branson, “and we’re thrilled that Virgin Mobile USA is putting on the event for the third time. Fans of all ages love our comfortable festival grounds, the great food and drinks, the vibe, and of course the brilliant talent. They want to plan their summer break around the festival and have asked us for details, so we’re letting everyone know to mark their calendars for August 9 and 10.”

In just two years, the Virgin Mobile Festival [previously called Virgin Festival By Virgin Mobile] has earned a reputation as a monster event, with such impressive artists as Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Who, The Police, Smashing Pumpkins, Beastie Boys, The Raconteurs, Modest Mouse, LCD Soundsystem, M.I.A, Spoon, Wolfmother and Amy Winehouse, and world-renowned DJs such as Sasha & John Digweed, Carl Cox and Deep Dish. Last year, there were 44 bands and DJs on three stages with 20 hours of non-stop entertainment.
