We are entering a golden age for music festivals. This year there are incredible weekend long events popping off up and down the east coast, several within only an hour or two drive of New York City. Just today Firefly Music Festival at The Woodlands of Dover International Speedway in Dover, Delaware was announced and it might be the biggest and baddest of them all, that is, if you are an rock music fan. Not only are favorites The Killers, The Black Keys and Jack White headlining but the supporting acts including Death Cab, Flaming Lips, Passion Pit, Young The Giant, AWOLNATION, Grouplove, Cults, Imagine Dragons and several others are leading the ongoing alt-rock revolution. Early bird tickets for the three day festival are on sale now for $178 and camping is allowed so if you’re interested get on it now.
Firefly Music Festival is hitting the East Coast for its inaugural year on July 20, 21 and 22 in Dover, Delaware. The festival will take place at The Woodlands of Dover International Speedway, located in close proximity to Philadelphia, New York City, Washington D.C. and Baltimore.

Additionally, Firefly offers a wide variety of interactive attractions including enhanced culinary options, craft beer and wine gardens, hot air balloon rides and more. The Woodlands of Dover International Speedway provides a picturesque wooded setting for the four stages of entertainment.
