Thank you for last night. I can’t remember the last time I said that. It’s definitely been since before I moved to D.C.
I am writing you through my hangover from Virgin FreeFest 2011. I didn’t even drink (heavily) yesterday, but my body hurts like it’s March 18th, January 1st or Seis de Mayo. I have been to a concert or two and I have attended my fair share of festivals, but Virgin FreeFest was unique.
The crowd at FreeFest was like nothing I have ever seen. September 10th was an all-day party in Columbia, Md. ”Let Free Ring” was the phrase of the day and the fans made their appreciation of the free festival obvious. Black and red festival t-shirts from years past polka-dotted the festival grounds. People literally walked around speaking their love for the festival organizers.
