Firefly Music Festival

Where: Dover, Delaware

When: June 15-17, 2017

Genre: All


Firefly – located in Dover, Delaware – is an all-genre encompassing festival. The lineup has spanned from Mumford and Sons to A$AP Rocky. Whatever you like, we guarantee will be there. The weekend is about taking a quick getaway from the city, almost like an adult summer camp in the woods by nighttime hits. During the day, there’s something for everyone as it’s for all ages. So go on and bond with your tike at a Travis Barker set, we’ve seen it!

The general scene feels like Bonnaroo meets college life due to nearby Delaware College and students flocking from Rutgers, UConn and Penn State. But don’t let the frat guys turn you away. Firefly is good vibes all around. You don’t have to look any further than their annual Hammock Hangout as testament.

• Pedicabs are also a unique feature to the festival. For $20, a tricked out cab will bring you and three of your friends from the main entrance to the parking lot or your campsite. It can be a helpful option considering you’ve been jumping around all day and may not want to do the almost mile trek.

• If you want to buy mixed drinks – such as their awesome Firefly Rum Punch – they ask you to also buy their reusable souvenir canteens to walk around the grounds with. It cost $16 for the cup, and refills were $8 for the rest of the fest. If you rather not, you can hop into one of their alcohol sponsors pop up bars, but note you can’t leave with your cup.

• Check out shows at The Treehouse, it’s an intimate space with some of your favorite artists. They usually give out free swag, too!

• Lastly, don’t forget to download the Firefly app before you leave. It’s made for offline use because I have perfect service said no one at a festival ever. The app includes a detailed map, a tool to create your own lineup with alerts, and a list of food vendors and activities. The Beercade is always a great option to beat the early summer heat.


Be sure to check out the @maliburumus Beach House for frozen cocktails, flash tattoos, and an aerial selfie. #BecauseSummer
