Firefly Music Festival To Be Held In Delaware
Delaware, welcome to the world of States that have sweet Music Festivals.
The news broke last night, that the three day ’Firefly Music Festival’, will be headlined by The Killers, The Black Keys and Jack White . Solid, right? I mean, sure The Killers aren’t in the stratosphere of musical relevance circa 2012 as the The Black Keys and Jack White are; but hey, they could have went with the Beach Boys, so we’ll chalk up those headliners as a win.
The ’2nd tier’ if you will, of headliners consists of The Flaming Lips
(what AREN’T the Flaming Lips doing these days?), Death Cab For Cutie
, John Legend
, Girl Talk
(cancelled as a result of mental health issues
). Modest Mouse
, a late edition to the festivities, announced on June 25th they’d be in Dover as well that weekend.
Dubbed the “East Coast’s Premier Music Experience”, will kick off July 20th at Woodlands of Dover International Speedway in Delaware and end July 22nd with 3 day passes going for a modest $178 (as of 6/28, 3-Day passes have been sold out), at the Festival’s official website. The rest of the listed acts are below.
