Music fans can close out their week with four days of music at the Firefly Music Festival. While most major festivals in the United States have already released their lineups, the annua music event has finally arrived with their own loaded lineup, which includes headliners The Weeknd, Muse, Chance The Rapper, Twenty One Pilots, and Bob Dylan.
Returning to The Woodlands in Dover Delaware on June 15-18 for its fifth year this summer, Firefly’s impressively diverse 2017 lineup also includes the return of Thirty Seconds To Mars, who will be playing their first shows since spring of last year. Other highlight artists included on the pretty deep poster for this year include Flume, Weezer, Miike Snow, Kesha, Glass Animals, AFI, Busta Rhymes, O.A.R., and Franz Ferdinand.
Firefly made headlines towards the end of 2016, when they announced that they would be the first major U.S. music festival to be completely curated by fans. From the lineup and food vendors, to the festival’s overall layout, this year’s event was meant to have a more personal touch when fans got ready to buy their tickets.
Artists like The Weeknd and Chance The Rapper are already making other appearances at festivals around the country this spring and summer, but having major rock artists like Bob Dylan, who we last saw at Desert Trip back in the fall, along with Muse, and Thirty Seconds To Mars on the poster will certainly help the Delaware festival sell tickets for what is already a pretty loaded month of music festivals along the east coast. Boston Calling, Governors Ball, Bonnaroo, and now Firefly, all run within four consecutive weekends of each other, so it should be interesting to see which festivals the majority of fans end up dancing towards.
Tickets for the festival go on sale today (Friday, Jan. 27) at 1p.m. EST.
