This year's festival will focus on charitable giving. It's a reminder to let people know that even as things are improving, there's always someone out there less fortunate than you. Last year, The FreeFest raised over $80,000 and generated 30,000 hours of volunteerism for youth homelessness. This year, in addition to two main stages, a dance forest filled with inspired music, and a special second line march from stage to stage with Trombone Shorty, the festival also brings attention and support to homeless youth shelters across the country. The RE*Generation, Virgin Mobile's charitable initiative to end youth homelessness, is encouraging fans to make a $5 donation and in return receive a 2010 Virgin Mobile FreeFest mix produced by Rusko. The download will mash up select bands in the lineup to create a unique 20-minute mix.
