Tickets will be available at noon Aug. 24 at TicketFly. A presale will be held Aug. 23 for Virgin Mobile Live's Twitter followers. Those who attended previous festivals, as well as Virgin Mobile customers, will also get access to the presale.
There will be no surcharge for tickets printed at home or picked up at Merriweather or the 9:30 Club in Washington.
Again this year, organizers are asking fans to donate to REGeneration, Virgin Mobile's effort to end youth homelessness.
The artists will perform on two stages, and in the dance forest. The lineup spans multiple genres, and features a handful of local acts, including Baltimore's Future Islands and D.C. singer/songwriter Justin Jones.
Rounding out the dance forest's lineup will be Above & Beyond, Porter & Zedd, Thomas Gold, Nervo, Alvin Risk and Penguin Prison.
This is the festival's fourth year at Merriweather. Last year's event drew a crowd of about 50,000, organizers said. Before moving to Merriweather, the festival charged admission and took place at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore.
