Dates (but not times) have been released for the artists playing at Firefly Music Festival this year!

The festival is June 14-17 in Dover, Delaware. This will be the 7th annual edition, with such headliners as The Killers, Eminem, Arctic Monkeys and Kendrick Lamar.

Tickets are on sale, now including single day options here.

If for some reason you can’t make it over to Dover for the festival, here’s a handy guide to a few of the artists I’m keen to see, also playing near DC.
