On this episode of America’s #1 music festival podcast & radio show, Steven Rhys explores his most recent experiences at of one of the east coasts’ most redound festival; Firefly Music Festival.  Which took place from June 15-18 at The Dover International Speedway, in Dover, Delaware.

It was a special year for Firefly, as this was the first year the festival unveiled it’s new “fan curated” program, which allowed early ticket holders to vote on numerous things from vendors to headlining acts and everything in between. Also new this year, was Firefly’s “cashless” policy, encouraging all attendees to to make payments through credit cards, debit cards, and apps.

Things got weird at this year's Firefly.  From discovering human remains outside the fest, to bands openly bashing other festivals on stage; it's safe to say that Firefly saw a unique opportunity this ear, and ran with it.

During this review we will explore the many different areas in which we feel make up a good festival and highlight the ones where Firefly really excelled, and where they could use some improvement.  Those areas include:

  • General Atmosphere & Aesthetics
  • Average Age
  • Venue
  • Vendors
  • Fan Curation
  • Music
  • More!

Also throughout the episode, we feature the music of three artists who will be performing at Firefly this year, and who we feel you need to make time in your festival schedule for.  This episode serves as promotion for Firefly and these artists, if you enjoy the music please support them by buying their songs, seeing their shows, and spreading the word. This week’s episode features:

Lil Dicky

Cashmere Cat
