Delaware’s Firefly Music Festival was first held in July of 2012. It was the very first concert venture produced by Red Frog Events. This is a Chicago-based company that has been hosting races in many different cities all over the U.S.

Firefly Music Festival Director Greg Bostrom said Dover was one of 60 locations originally considered for the event. Red Frog Events officials visited nine locations and chose Dover for a variety of mostly logistical reasons – its location compared to large East Coast cities like New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington, D.C., and the area’s ability to handle large crowds. Company officials were also happy with the speedway staff already in place as well as the availability of nearby hotels.

In 2012, its first year, Firefly Music Festival was a three-day event, held July 20, 21, and 22. Three-day passes cost $178. The Killers, The Black Keys, and Jack White headlined a total of 48 acts that included Death Cab for Cutie, John Legend, and The Flaming Lips. An up-and-coming band called Imagine Dragons was one of the lower-billed groups that performed on one of the Festival’s four stages. Approximately 30,000 fans attended. In 2013 the crowd almost doubled in size to 65,000 fans.

Three years later, Red Frog Events expects a larger crowd with one hundred and eleven artists performing June 16-19.
