The annual Virgin Mobile fest near Baltimore changed to reflect the times this year. Renamed the Virgin Mobile FreeFest, the 2009 event reacted to the country's economic struggles by condensing the proceedings to one day, making the tickets free, and sending out a crew of 14 teen aspiring filmmakers to make a documentary about the fest, "Kyocera's All Access: Virgin Mobile FreeFest." 19 bands -- including Weezer, Blink-182, Girl Talk, Public Enemy, Taking Back Sunday and Franz Ferdinand -- played three stages at Columbia, MD's Merriweather Post Pavilion on August 30 and the young documentarians captured all of the action. Billboard.com has several sneak peeks from the film.

The clip above chronicles the FreeFest experiences of Taking Back Sunday, who played the main stage under the pavilion at the fest.
