Held at The Woodlands on Dover’s International Speedway, Firefly Music Festival has proven to be one of the most respected festivals in the Northeast since its humble beginnings in 2012. Now, Firefly will once again be lighting up its stages from June 18th-21st with headliners such as Rage Against the Machine, Halsey, and 5-time Grammy-award winning artist, Billie Eilish.

Other major acts who will be performing during the packed 4-day weekend include: Khalid, Blink-182, Maggie Rogers, Cage the Elephant, CHVRCHES, and Blackbear. Firefly is known for delivering a wide variety of genres for any kind of music lover. The electronic music community should be especially pleased to see a strong presence from a variety of fan favorites such as: Illenium, Diplo, RL Grime, NGHTMRE, Big Wild, Loud Luxury, Petit Biscuit, Cray, Whipped Cream, and more.

The 105-acre festival ground provides a massive space for festival goers to enjoy more than just the main stage acts. With 50,000+ people attending in 2019, Firefly created immersive experiences such as, the “Thicket Silent Disco” a headphone rave hidden in the forest, the “Bazaar Central Market” a hub of vendors with unique handcrafted goods, “The Nook” a relaxing hammock hangout in the shady trees, and the “North Hub Beach Club” DJ-hosted parties with tiki bars and beach sports.

Passes are on sale now starting at $299 for GA, $699 for VIP, and $2,499 for Super VIP. GA grants access into all four days of the festival and performances. Standard VIP allows for VIP viewing at most stages, private air-conditioned restrooms, exclusive dining options, VIP hospitality tents, plus other amenities. Super VIP gives access to exclusive artist lounges with private open bars, two meal vouchers per day, exclusive dining options, premium viewing at 3 festival main stages, golf cart concierge services, access to all areas available to GA / VIP guests, and more amenities overall. The festival is offering a payment plan for passes that can be divided up to four equal payments if ordered between now and 2/26.

Firefly is also known for its camping experience just as much as the festival itself, and there are a variety of lodging packages which allow campers to get settled starting Wednesday. Standard North Tent Camping at The Great Atlantic Campout, closest to the Firefly stage, goes for $209. South Tent Camping at The Great Atlantic Campout, closest to the main festival entrance, goes for $179. Both packages allow up to 6 guests and parking on site. The festival truly endorses camping with many different options for Group Camping, Glamping, and even RVs. However, if camping is not your style, you can still have the full festival experience with help from Firefly’s search engine of recommended hotels in the area.

Firefly Music Festival plans to make 2020 its most unforgettable year yet with talent from far and wide. It’s likely that passes will sell out soon, so be sure to secure yours with your squad before they’re gone!
