Firefly Music Festival prepares for ticket sales
DOVER — After a halted 2020 season, the 2021 Firefly Music Festival will return to Dover with Billie Eilish, The Killers, Tame Impala and Lizzo headlining the four-day event running September 23 to 26.
The event, owned and operated by mega concert promoter AEG Presents, is a huge driver for the state’s economy, drawing tens of thousands of visitors to the state’s NASCAR track and pumping nearly $70 million into the region’s economy in a single year.
This year’s event will see a mix of acts, led by Eilish, the singer-songwriter best known for her single “Bad Guy” who took home four awards from the 2019 Grammy Awards.
The second tier listings include rock acts like Cage the Elephant, Sylvan Esso, Phoebe Bridgers, Portugal the Man, and Band of Horses; rappers like Megan Thee Stallion, Roddy Rich, Wiz Khalifa and Machine Gun Kelly; and electronic dance music performers like Diplo, Rezz, Madeon, Big Wild, and more.
Tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, May 14, at FireflyFestival.com. Attendees must first go to the site and register for presale. Four-day general admission passes start at $299, VIP at $699 and Super VIP at $2,499.
