Firefly Music Festival is hitting the East Coast for its inaugural year on July 20, 21 and 22 in Dover, Delaware. The festival will take place at the Woodlands of Dover International Speedway, located in close proximity to Philadelphia, New York City, Washington D.C. and Baltimore. It's situated in the hub of the East Coast, that's for sure. Not to mention the fact that Delaware is the home of tax-free shopping!
Headliners include The Killers, The Black Keys and Jack White alongside more than 40 national acts, including Death Cab for Cutie, John Legend and The Flaming Lips. Additionally, Firefly offers a wide variety of interactive attractions including enhanced culinary options, craft beer and wine gardens, hot air balloon rides and more. The Woodlands of Dover International Speedway provides a picturesque wooded setting for the four stages of entertainment. Tickets will go on sale through FireflyFestival.com on Thursday, April 5. That's tomorrow.
"We're thrilled to announce Firefly Music Festival as the East Coast's premier music experience and are set on delivering an unforgettable weekend complete with top tier talent and unique attractions. We look forward to bringing Firefly to life in July," said Joe Reynolds, owner of Red Frog Events, the producers of Firefly.
Firefly is not just about the rock. It's also charitable, as the fest is partnering with St. Jude Children's Research Hospital's through their Music Gives to St. Jude Kids program. Festival attendees can support the lifesaving work of St. Jude on-site and leading up to the event. The local Dover communities will also see benefits from Firefly with economic impact projected to reach into the millions and with "Illuminate Dover," a Firefly program dedicated to community enhancement and beautification projects in and around Dover.
