Firefly Music Festival expands to four days in 2014

Firefly Music Festival will expand to a four-day event in 2014 in an effort to offer more musical performances and provide a more comfortable experience for fans as they travel into the festival and campgrounds.

Firefly Music FestivalThe addition of the fourth day of entertainment, plus allowing festival-goers to arrive at the campgrounds as early as Wednesday, will help alleviate traffic issues Firefly encountered in 2013.

It also allows the festival to grow to more than 100 musical acts on seven stages, an increase from 2013’s 74 bands on six stages.

“The addition of a fourth day to Firefly will allow for more acts and a heightened experience for fans as they arrive at The Woodlands,” said Firefly Music Festival Director Greg Bostrom.

In preparation for 2014, Dover International Speedway has cleared seven more acres of land from The Woodlands, as well as seeded and graded approximately 80 acres. This should allow enough room to host upwards of 85,000 people at once, setting the stage for Firefly to become one of the largest rock festivals in the country.

Firefly is set to return to The Woodlands of Dover International Speedway on June 19-23, 2014. Festival gates will open in the afternoon on Thursday, June 19 and the lineup will be announced in early 2014. The additional load-in days will also help mitigate traffic concerns in Delaware during the annual Firefly weekend.
