This June, Wilmington and Live, Work, Play residents will have the unique opportunity to get up close and personal with superstar groups like Outkast, Foo Fighters and Imagine Dragons at the annual four-day Firefly Music Festival. The critically acclaimed Red Frog sponsored event will take place from June 19th to the 22nd and the star studded lineup already consists of more than 100 of the hottest names in music, including some promising up and comers you might not even know you love.

This festival is the perfect way to ring in the summer season for the Generation Next-ers who never got to witness Woodstock at its prime and the seasoned music veterans who wish to relive the glory of large outdoor spectacles again.

The Firefly Music Festival is more than just an event – it’s an experience. Music lovers can kick it in RVs on the campgrounds or pitch a tent and enjoy the musical backdrop and the rural sites of Dover. Public access to shopping, food trucks and even cell phone charging stations is included in the price of admission. Those who wish to take in tunes but prefer to relax in the seclusion of an offsite hotel room will be thrilled to hear that many Dover hotels are running Firefly specials in honor of the show. These rooms might sell out quickly, so prompt reservations are an absolute must.

Once inside the festival, ticket holders are free to participate in a wide range of relaxing and invigorating activities such as hammock swinging, apple picking and community yoga. The festival grounds house a full on video arcade, a quaint coffee house and a dazzling lantern light show with tons of romantic potential. Sporty shoe company Toms will be holding a shoe customizing event with charitable proceeds in the form of footwear for the needy.

If you’re considering attending this event, reserving tickets ahead of time will help you to avoid last minute hang-ups such as waiting in line for hours and possibly camping for tickets rather than the concert experience. It is suggested that attendees carry cash and credit in order to accommodate some of the cash only vendors who might catch your eye with their wares. Many more outdoor music fests are headed to the Live, Work, Play region this year. For a detailed summer schedule, contact a representative today!
