Hey folks so I guess from my previous years of going I'm on their mailing list (even thought I don't remember getting any thing from them in the past). ANYWAY:
"Lineup to be announced Monday." And then THIS:
"Follow us on Twitter @virginmlive Be the first to see our 2012 line-up announcement!
Since we love our fans (YOU), keep checking your email -- we're sending you a special pre-sale tickets code and link the day before they're on-free for everyone else!
Free tickets are available while supplies last. Ticket acquisition through Ticketfly. Two ticket limit. Internet only, no telephone or outlet. Other restrictions may apply. For full details go to Ticketfly.com."
So I'd sign up for their email updates if you haven't already. Mrs. toml30 and I are still on the fence for this. It'd be the first one we've missed in years, but the date stinks. If the lineup helps deconflict ACL then we may be there anyway.
Anyone know where to sign up for their mailing list? I cannot find it on the website or facebook.
When I click to try and find out where to sign up it gives a dummy address. I can't find a link to sign up. The only thing I can think is to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and ask how to get email updates. I'm guessing they want buzz with twitter followers so they're trying to entice people to get their updates through twitter (?)
Anyway, if that doesn't work, I'll just keep posting what I get here.

Think I may try to do this instead of Counterpoint if I can get tickets. There is an Oktoberfest thing I want to go to in Baltimore the following weekend, so I could just stay the week and do both, kill two birds with one stone. Not getting my hopes to high though, I remember the free tickets lasted about 30 seconds last year.
Been to tickeyfly.com, couldn't find anything on it.
Lineup comes out tomorrow. Everyone says the free tickets go super-fast, and you have to have a little luck on getting one. Would love if someone could share some info on how to attempt to get one or two!

Yet it is in this loneliness that the deepest activities begin. It is here that you discover act without motion, labor that is profound repose, vision in obscurity, and, beyond all desire, a fulfillment whose limits extend to infinity.
