Don’t Miss: Firefly Music Festival @ The Woodlands of Dover, 6/16-6/19/16

Firefly 1Get excited for Firefly 2016!

The fifth annual Firefly Music Festival (June 16-19) is fast approaching. The full schedule is now available here.

With seven different stages and 134 bands and artists over four days, each day of this year’s festival will bring an impressive display of musical power.

Some highlights I’m looking forward to include; Ellie Goulding, CHVRCHES, Florence + The Machine, Silversun Pickups and Mumford & Sons.

Single day passes are also available if you can’t attend the full festival.

In addition to all the music you can handle, the food and alcohol options look promising. Nearly 30 restaurants will be available, from tacos to schnitzel to curry to BBQ to chicken and waffles and more.

Of course, since the festival is in Delaware, the partnership with Dogfish Head Brewery continues in the form of a grand tent, The Brewery. This year, the specialty beers are:

  1. Alternate Takes #1: a double IPA (ABV: 7.8)
  2. Alternate Takes #2: a Belgian-style brown ale (ABV: TBD)
  3. Biere de Provence: a summer saison (ABV: 8.3)
