    Festival Announcement

    Delaware’s Firefly Music Festival won’t arrive for more than six months, but the four-day lineup was already revealed to fans on the morning of Nov. 18. Held at Dover International Speedway, the unique festival will showcase more than 110 artists during its run, June 16-19.

    Among the major performers next year will be Mumford and Sons, who’ll make the Firefly Music Festival one of just a few East Coast stops during its upcoming North American tour. Florence and the Machine will support its 2015 album, “How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful,” on the Firefly stage this summer, while Deadmau5 will spice things up with a headlining DJ set. And for the second year in a row, Kings of Leon will return to Firefly, hopefully with a new album in tow.

Hip-hop greats like Ludacris, Fetty Wap, and Vince Staples will appear on the same stages as electro-influenced projects like Major Lazer, CHVRCHES, and Disclosure. A wide range of rock acts will be the main focus at this year’s festival, though. Fans will get to see pop punk hit-maker Blink-182, Aussie psych rock outfit Tame Impala, Icelandic indie pop band Of Monsters and Men, Celtic punk group Flogging Molly, and blues rock newcomer Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats this year alone.
