Firefly Festival: the East Coast’s ‘Premier Music Experience’

Firefly Music Festival is gearing up for three days of musical performances, gourmet dining, and interactive entertainment. The event takes place July 20 through 22 at the Woodlands at Dover International Speedway in Dover, Del.

“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.

Top acts include Death Cab for Cutie, The Black Keys, The Killers, The Flaming Lips, Cake, Jack White (whose debut solo album Blunderbuss comes outs April 23), Cold War Kids, Girl Talk, Blind Pilot, John Legend, OK Go, The Wallflowers, Cults, Matt Costa, Trampled by Turtles, and many more.

Not only is the bill impressive, but Firefly strays from traditional festival food fare to offer guests an enhanced culinary and beverage experience. They plan to serve distinct pop-up restaurants, each with their own concept and menu, as well as feature local brewery and wine selections.

In addition to watching bands perform, hot air balloons are available on-site to create a rare viewing experience. Local artists will also be around to paint and personalize your canvas TOMS, providing you with the opportunity to give back to children for their one for one movement.

During the three days, you may need a break from the music or you may get tired of waiting for your favorite band to set up, and if this happens, check out The Arcade where they’ve set up vintage arcade games amidst the great outdoors. Games include pinball, skeeball, foosball and more!

Give back, leave your mark and take a few snapshots with the Interactive Art Gallery. Vintage window art will allow attendees to utilize their creativity by writing, drawing and painting their words on rustic oak windows. Share a memory, joke or secret. You may also enter the photo flipbook station, grab any of their on-site props and get ready to perform. You and your friends can record a short video which will transform into a photo flipbook and leave you with tangible memories.

Firefly prides themselves on taking part in the Green Sustainable Beats by dividing their waste and recyclables, offering free water refills, and selling Green Mountain Energy Green Tickets.
