Alright — so maybe you didn’t snatch those Coachella tickets you so terribly wanted. And maybe you’re suffering from a little bit of FOMO. Fear no more, my friends. Fortunately, there’s an incredible music festival on the horizon and (dare I say?) it might make some of your Coachella-going folks a teeny bit jealous. Take heed, east coasters!

Say hello to The Firefly Music Festival! The festival, which is slated to take place June 18th – 21st in Dover, Delaware, already has an insane lineup. If this is any indication, Paul McCartney has officially joined The Killers and Kings of Leon as a festival headliner. Now, aside from witnessing this legendary rock-n-roll trifecta, Firefly goers will have a plethora of other artists to choose from. And by plethora, I mean this very extensive list of notable acts.

You’ve got pretty much everyone on the indie and/or rock spectrum with The Killers, Kings of Leon, Morrissey, Spoon, Modest Mouse, Foster the People, Awolnation, Empire of the Sun, Cage the Elephant, Hozier, Bastille, The Kooks and Cold War Kids.

If you’re in a more experimental mood, Big Data, Zola Jesus, Le1f, RJD2, Tycho, How to Dress Well and Glass Animals will satisfy your craving for all things cutting edge. And, should you feel the need to bang your head like a crazy person, Steve Aoki will be there!

The hip-hop genre will be rounded out with Snoop Dogg, Kid Cudi, DJ Mustard, Raury and rapper on-the-rise, Dizzy Wright. Speaking of artists on-the-rise — did we mention? Two of our favorite female pop stars, Charli XCX and Tove Lo, will also be performing!

If this list doesn’t satisfy you, maybe you’ll the full lineup a little more redeeming? Tickets go on sale Monday, March 2nd through the festival’s website, and VIP pass options will be available as soon as tomorrow, February 27th. Get to coordinating, peeps!
