Delaware megafestival Firefly is going on hiatus.
“We’ll be cherishing these moments until we reunite,” the announcement said. “After 10 magical years of Firefly in The Woodlands, we’ve decided to take a year to recharge our lights. We will see you in 2024!”
Firefly launched in 2012 with a lineup headlined by Jack White, The Black Keys, The Killers and more; subsequent headliners over the years have included Tom Petty, OutKast, Florence And The Machine, with a strong roster of up-and-coming and under-the-radar artists playing their smaller stages. Though crowds in recent years have waned as compared to the festival’s peak — where upwards to 90,000 people watched Paul McCartney’s main stage set in 2015 — it’s estimated that 50,000 were in attendance in 2021, and this year’s crowd felt comparable from our perspective on the ground.
