Firefly Festival 2016: Dates, Lineup, Ticket Info and More


Music fans have flocked with tents in tow to Delaware's Firefly Festival since the annual camp-out music fest started in 2012. The four-day event has featured stacked lineups in past years, and next year's event is no exception. The 2016 lineup, announced Wednesday, revealed Mumford and Sons, Kings of Leon, Florence and the Machine and Deadmau5 will headline the festival and be joined by performances from more than 100 big-name and underground artists. 

Firefly Festival 2016 dates: The festival will take place in Dover, Delaware, from June 16 to June 19, and aside from the plethora of alternative music, its attractions encapsulate the quintessential modern music festival: a partnership with Dogfish Head Brewery, a silent disco in the woods, a high-end farmers market of sorts, an area reserved for chilling on hammocks and a camp-out option (Firefly will provide and set up the tent for an extra fee).
