Details surrounding this year's Virgin Mobile FreeFest at Merriweather Post Pavilion are slowly trickling out.

It was announced today that this year's FreeFest will take place Saturday, Oct. 6. It will be Merriweather's fourth year hosting the free all-day event. 

No word yet on which acts will play the bill, but this year, the festival is getting fans involved in the announcement process.

Twitter fans will be eligible to be part of the line-up announcement by submitting guesses to @virginmlive as to which acts will appear in this year's event. (Don't forget to use the official hashtag #FreeFest.) Random winners will be contacted with further instructions and will also win VIP tickets to the FreeFest.

The attendance for last year's FreeFest was approximately 50,000, the largest to date. The Black Keys, TV on the Radio, Deadmau5 and others performed.
