Firefly Music Festival, the most prominent multi-day summer music festival in the area, will return to the Woodlands at Delaware's Dover International Speedway for its third year on June 19-22.
Reuinted rap duo Outkast leads the lineup, along with Foo Fighters, Jack Johnson, Arctic Monkeys, the Lumineers, Pretty Lights, Imagine Dragons, Third Eye Blind, Chance the Rapper, Girl Talk, Childish Gambino and more. (For the full lineup, click here.) More than 100 artists — but none based in Baltimore — are scheduled to perform over the course of four days. (Previous Firefly festivals were three days long.)
We could complain that these major festival lineups — Coachella, Governors Ball and the rest that have yet to announce that they, too, have booked Outkast — have all started to coalesce, but the fact is Baltimore music fans who wondered if they'd ever see Outkast live (this writer included) now only have to travel 90 or so miles to see Andre 3000 and Big Boi later this year. That's a win.
VIP and Super VIP passes are on sale now. General admission passes go on sale at noon on Monday through fireflyfestival.com.
