Crowd-pleasing lineups and a woodland setting make this young festival at Dover International Speedway one to watch.
Though it only started in 2012, Firefly has already established itself as a festival star in the making, with a winning formula of blue-chip acts, original entertainment and the customary friendly, right-on atmosphere.
There’s plenty of emerging talent on show, too, if dicing it with headliner crowds isn’t your thing.
The woodland-enclosed site has six main stages, with plenty to do strung out between them, from a craft beer bar run by cult brewery Dogfish Head to interactive lighting and video displays among the trees. And when you’re partied out you can head to the Hammock Hangout to recharge the batteries before you head back into the madness.
You can come away from Firefly with a pair of one-of-a-kind kicks thanks to TOMS – buy a pair of shoes and the brand’s on-site artists will help you turn them into something totally unique.
