Firefly Music Festival is a premier music experience set among lush wooded landscapes, featuring renowned headliners and emerging artists. Guests witness unforgettable performances and discover the engaging attractions nestled around every turn that make Firefly a can’t-miss summer tradition for music fans from around the world. In 2012, Firefly attracted 30,000 attendees in its inaugural year with a sell out of 90,000 in 2015, making it one of the country’s fastest growing festivals. In late 2014, festival organizers Red Frog Events partnered with Goldenvoice (creators of Coachella and Stagecoach) to produce and promote Firefly.
