V Fest Will Be Where It Should Be

That's right, Virgin Festival Ontario is back where it should be. Because of low ticket sales, the CNW Group announced yesterday that they are moving the event from Burl's Creek back to Toronto. It'll be taking place on August 29th and 30th at the Molson Ampitheatre and tickets include admission to the CNE. It's a huge step forward, moving it back to the city, but I disagree with seating for a festival. It takes away from the free-spirited nature of a music festival, doesn't it?

The Lineup hasn't changed much since our last update, other than Pitbull being announced as the headliner for the Virgin Radio Stage...


Oh wait, you're being serious?
