Organizers of the Firefly Music Festival announced today that single day general passes will not be available for the 2015 installment - being held in Dover, Delaware June 18 through 21 - citing an increased demand for the 4-day pass which is driving the festival to the sold out mark.
Greg Bostrom, Director of Firefly Music Festival, said the event has seen an unprecedented increase each year since the inaugural 2012 festival, with a sold out crowd of 90,000 attendees expected to turn out this year. This, in turn, eliminated their ability to offer single day general admission passes in 2015, according to Bostrom.
Four-day weekend passes are currently still on sale with limited quantities remaining at the regular general admission price of $299. The price is expected to jump to the "encore" price of $329 soon as the regular price nears sell out.
“Firefly is about more than just the music, it's about the passionate group of people who join us each year, the amazing environment of The Woodlands, the festival attractions, evenings in the campgrounds, all in addition to the diversity of music and talent that we've curated across all the days,” said Tad Jenkins, VP of Customer Experience at Firefly Music Festival and Red Frog Events. “This is best experienced across the full weekend and, each year, we get excited to provide these fans the unforgettable summer moments they look forward to at The Woodlands.”
This year's headliners include Paul McCartney, Kings of Leon, and The Killers. The 2015 lineup also features Morrissey, Snoop Dogg, Foster the People, Bastille, Modest Mouse, Spoon, Cage the Elephant, AWOLNation, Sublime with Rome, Steve Aoki, and nearly 100 additional acts performing across seven stages.
In 2012, Firefly attracted 30,000 attendees in its inaugural year, and jumped to more than 80,000 in 2014. In late 2014, festival organizers Red Frog Events partnered with Goldenvoice - creators of Coachella and Stagecoach - to produce and promote Firefly.
