Firefly invests $1 million in more comfortable campgrounds

Outdoor music festivals have a reputation for high-end performances and low-end accommodations. Big-name acts often play to audiences fresh from mud-slicked campgrounds, porta potties and temporary showers.

Firefly Music Festival outside Dover wants to change that experience. The three-day festival will invest $1 million in permanent bathrooms, a “Spruce Up Lounge” equipped with blow dryers, mirrors and flat irons, upgraded lighting throughout the festival grounds and additional “Ranger Stations,” where guests can access Firefly employees for assistance.

What Firefly is calling the “Great Atlantic Campout” is made up of two hubs called North and South Camping.

North Camping will include the 200 permanent shower stalls and attached locker rooms. It will also feature the North Hub Beach Club, a hangout area with a Tiki bar and sand beach. South Camping will provide Spruce Up Lounges and host events such as “Human Foosball.”

In July 2018, Firefly’s founders sold the festival to global entertainment company AEG Presents, known for running Coachella in California. At the time, Melissa Ormond of AEG Presents told The News Journal that festival-goers shouldn’t expect major changes.
