This year’s Virgin Mobile Fest, headlined by blink-182 and Weezer, has been rechristened the Virgin Mobile FreeFest thanks to its total ticket price of $0–provided you don’t get your tickets delivered, at which point Ticketmaster will charge its customary delivery fee. Ticket buyers who pick up their ducats at the festival’s site (the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Md.) or the 9:30 Club in Washington, D.C., will have all convenience fees waived. Tickets go on sale–er, will be made available to the general public on Saturday; Public Enemy, St. Vincent, Franz Ferdinand, the National, and Jet are also on the bill for the festival, which will happen on Aug. 30.
