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



Sounds like you might enjoy the Firefly music festival.  I am guessing no band playing that festival would be allowed to play free fest.

Flaming Lips at festivals take way too long to set up.  Saw them in a park in Chicago in 2003 and they played a full set then, but only played 5 songs at Coachella.  Maybe they're a little more timely now since it seems like they only play festivals and the occassional one off show now...

I saw them there too! Cubs Care Park next to the New City YMCA next to the still standing Cabrini Green near Division and Halsted! That was pretty sweet, that was the third time in one month I saw the Lips.

Not real keen on seeing them again, unless they play tons of Soft Bulletin.

Have they confirmed a date? Or did I make that up.... I knot they confirmed that there WILL be a Freefest. When did they announce last year?

I sincerely hope I don't have to go through fucking Facebook like last year. That was such a pain in the dick.

I am begining to think there won't be a virgin fest this year.  Last year the announcement with the line-up was made on July 13th.  The second wednesday in July.  It is the third wednesday in July and still no announcement.  Maybe the Firefly festival took all the bands that would have played.  But as it is a free fest and sponsors want their name out there why such a delay in any sort of announcement?

It was held in my backyard last weekend, Daft Punk headlined...  Did you not see the announcement?

Details are scarce (actually, make that non-existent), but it's been confirmed to Midnight Sun that the Virgin Mobile FreeFest will return for its seventh year, according to spokeswoman Audrey Fix Schaefer.

At this point it looks like it'll be in October. Fine by me; cooler weather.

But I just bought my old-skool early 90s NBA jersey for the festival!

I still think this isn't happening.  Last year their were articles i the post and sun predicting who would be playing.  the date was out in march and the line-up announced july 13th.
