On Saturday, Sept. 10, throngs of hipsters, ravers, hip-hop kids and even the casual listener will descend on the site for one of the best festivals in the Northeast.

    The FreeFest lineup is smtacked from top to bottom with talent that should keep enthusiasts of all genres entertained during the daylong affair. The Black Keys, Cut Copy, Two Door Cinema Club and Okkervil River will share billing with electronic acts like Deadmau5, Teddybears and Eclectic Method and hip-hop artists Cee Lo Green and Big Sean.
