Firefly Music Festival Release 2018 Lineup
Dover, Delaware’s Firefly Music Festival announced their 2018 lineup this morning and for their 6th year in the “Woodlands” the group of performers isn’t looking half bad. Two of their headliners are being plucked straight from Bonnaroo in Eminem, who seems to be doing his version OutKast’s 2012 summer festival tour, and The Killers who are returning to Firefly after headlining it’s 2015 outing. Joining them on the big stage will be LA hip-hop icon Kendrick Lamar and English garage rock heavyweights Arctic Monkeys who played The Woodlands in 2014 but have never headlined before.
The undercard is nothing to sleep on either however with artists like the absolutely entrancing Odesza and rap legend Lil Wayne taking the lead. Along with an eclectic array of spectacular artists like SZA, Portugal The Man, Big Gigantic, Jimmy Eat World, Warren G, Terror Jr., Cold War Kids, MGMT, Foster The People, Chromeo, SMALLPOOLS, Chicano Batman, and too many more to count.
Going down the lineup toward the small print two sleepers that I personally wouldn’t miss for the world if I were in attendance at Firefly Music Festival are Prescott Arizona’s Spafford and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania’s Ron Gallo. Spafford has been grinding it out as a group since 2009 but have only recently picked up their much deserved national recognition. They have become one of the most exciting jam bands around right now with tunes that fall more on the heavy and electronic side of jam music, as opposed to the lighter more folk and country inspired jams of the genre. While Ron Gallo is just a straight up rock ‘n roll dynamo who burst into the national music scene in 2014 and hasn’t looked back since.
Tickets go on sale TOMORROW at 10am EST, so…
