Festival Pick: Firefly Music Festival 2018 (6/14-6/17/18)

Firefly 2017 (From Alive Coverage)

The 7th Annual Firefly Music Festival is coming in June! Head over to Dover, Delaware from June 14-17 for four days of music!

With nearly 100 artists currently announced to perform, on(typically) seven stages, this year’s edition looks to be another amazing time. The current lineup is available here.

Highlights I’m looking forward to include: headliners Arctic Monkeys and The Killers (whom I saw at the first Firefly!); Royal Blood, Chromeo, Middle Kids and The Regrettes, to name just a few.

The opportunity to discover new bands is one of the main reasons I enjoy Firefly. The festival atmosphere is great and I love seeing favorite bands live, often for the first time.

Plus all the good food and adult beverages to imbibe, like the ever-present Dogfish Head Craft Brewery, serving beers at their grand showcase tent, The Brewery. The official craft beer of the festival, Firefly Ale, will have a special ingredient this year…guava! It’s brewed with guava puree and coconut flower nectar, for a bit of sweetness. Can’t wait to try it.

Get your GA tickets here.

Single day passes are also usually available if you can’t attend the full festival. Stay tuned for when those go on sale.

Learn about lodging options here. (Camping, glamping, RVs or hotels!)

GA passes are $329 (price will increase). (VIP passes are $749)
