Richard Branson just announced on the Virgin Mobile Live Internet radio station the lineup for the Virgin FreeFest—-which is, yes, free—-at Merriweather Post Pavillion on Sept. 25. Who’s playing? M.I.A., Pavement, Ludacris, LCD Soundsystem, T.I., Joan Jett (“our fabulous retro act”), Chromeo, Jimmy Eat World, the Temper Trap, Yeasayer, Neon Indian, Sleigh Bells, Thievery Corporation, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Matt and Kim, Die Antwoord, Modeselektor, and surely others to come.
The radio station is playing “Gold Soundz” right now. Feels good.
