For the fifth year in a row, Virgin Mobile FreeFest tickets “freed-out” in just a few minutes. But fear not, there is still a way to get a ticket that’s fun, easy and way better than searching for scalpers. Virgin Mobile USA, creator of one of the largest and most critically acclaimed music festivals in the country that annually draws 50,000 people, today announced that music fans can volunteer their time at homeless youth shelters or donate hygiene kits to earn tickets to FreeFest through The RE*Generation, Virgin Mobile’s charitable initiative to address youth homelessness.

Volunteer opportunities will begin in the Washington area at Sasha Bruce Youthwork on Saturday, Aug. 17, and run through Saturday, Sept. 7.
