Firefly Music Festival planning for crowd of 90,000

Share

DOVER, Del. (AP) — The organizers of Delaware’s Firefly Music Festival are expecting up to 90,000 attendees at this year’s event.

The festival, scheduled from June 18-21, has 119 announced bands, including headliners Paul McCartney, Kings of Leon and The Killers. Last year about 80,000 people attended.

Gene Donaldson, a Delaware Department of Transportation traffic manager, says the organization and Red Frog, the event production company, have been meeting monthly to plan for traffic flows. Donaldson says letting camping vehicles arrive on June 17 will help spread out traffic volume, and organizers are also separating entrances for campers and people driving in to the festival for the day.

The event will be held on the grounds of the Dover International Speedway.
