As one of the newer kids on the block, it's hard to believe that Firefly Music Festival is already five years old. The next installment of the Dover, DE festival will be held June 16-19 2016 and include some heavy-hitter headlines like Mumford & Sons, Kings of Leon, Florence & The Machine, Deadmau5, and Ellie Goulding.
But perhaps more interesting are some of the acts lower down on the bill, as Firefly says it's attempting to expand the breadth of genres featured at the festival. Other confirmed acts on the lineup include A$AP Rocky, Blink-182, Ludacris, Earth Wind & Fire, Major Lazer, Trombone Shorty & New Orleans Avenue, and local pop-rockers Sun Club (whose new album we review in the December issue).
"We wanted the 2016 lineup to reach a wide audience while resonating with our core Firefly community," says Christiane Pheil, talent and experience director at Firefly Music Festival. "We're confident this lineup does just that."
As in past years, attendees can take a break from the music at attractions like the DogFish Head Brewery, The Beercade, The Coffee House, The Market, and Hammock Hangout. Additionally, Firefly is partnering with St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and a portion of proceeds from two-days passes will be donated to the hospital.
General admission and VIP pass options go on sale November 20 at 11 a.m. and can be purchased here.
