Firefly Music Festival at Dover International Speedway
The Black Keys musicians Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney.
Delaware has never seen anything like this: The Firefly Music Festival, featuring a lineup of artists the size and quality of a Lollapalooza. The weekend of July 20-22, 40 acts play The Woodlands, 87 acres of forested event space at Dover International Speedway. Performers include rockers The Black Keys (pictured below), Jack White, Death Cab for Cutie, Philly-fave John Legend, Michael Franti and Spearhead, neo-soul man Mayer Hawthorne, The Flaming Lips, The Killers, The Felice Brothers, and Heartless Bastards. Experience four stages and four pop-up restaurants, not to mention camping, RV sites and hotel rooms from bottom dollar to swank. Ticket packages range from $198 to $1,195 for the works, including on-stage viewing. If you thought NASCAR brought the crowds, just wait till you see this. (fireflyfestival.com)
