New Festival Alert! Firefly Music Festival Lighting Up the East Coast

The Killers are coming to Delaware

A new major music festival will debut this summer in Delaware. The inaugural Firefly Festival will take place July 20-22, 2012, at Dover International Speedway (only a couple hours from DC, Philly, and Baltimore). Firefly is not messing around with their lineup, which was announced today and included headliners like Jack White, The Black Keys, Death Cab for Cutie, The Flaming Lips, Passion Pit, Cake, and John Legend.

There will be camping — this is a NASCAR track after all. On site camping costs $145 or you can go “glamping” for $1500 and stay in a VIP lounge tent. Tickets go on sale this April 5th and will run $178 for an early bird wristband. See the official site to purchase tickets.
