so i'm seeing Sept 8 as the date... a lot.  but no one has a source.  everyone just seems to know/agree on 9/08.  is it some sort of "worse kept secret" situation here?

haven't seen about JW headlining.  can't say that White is a big draw for me,  but i'll be there regardless.  freefest is always one of my summer highlights.  they could switch to an all-polka format and i'd still be there.  i'd spend less time at the main stage, but i'd still be there ;D

Is it bad that I would actually be excited about an all polka day at Merriweather?

I've missed free-fest every year because of weddings I could not get out of.  A month ago, my sister announced she's getting married the weekend of September 8-9th in Las Vegas. 

I'd say that's concrete proof V-fest is that weekend... if there is one.

Let the planning begin.

oh please gawd no.  that would make me skip it.  i'd much rather have polka than that.

i can't hate - i'm half slavic, so i'm genetically predisposed to the 1-2-3, 1-2-3, 1-2-3...

I have to skip it if it's on the 8th.

Mission of Burma day!

Unless I could find someone willing to leave early enough to do both.

My one request.....AT THE DRIVE-IN

they are teasing "exciting news". Tweeting things like "Stay tuned for Transmissions"

Fingers crossed for Free Fest!

Okay, so no Jack White, I guess. How about the Flaming Lips? Have they played a Freefest before?

they played the first Virgin Fest, at Pimlico.  their last show in the area was at MPP - i wanna say 3 years ago?  would be a solid headliner, IMO.
