Dover, Delaware’s Firefly Music Festival is getting some upgrades this year to its “Great Atlantic Campout.” The festival has invested $1 million into camping and infrastructure ahead of its 2019 edition, Billboard reports. The additions include individual, permanent, ventilated showers, connected to private changing rooms. There will also be an upgraded “spruce up lounge,” with full mirrors and space for hair appliances.
Firefly’s two campgrounds, North and South Camping, are each getting their own additional upgrades, as well. North Camp Ground will gain a North Hub Beach Club with a tiki bar, sand beach, splash pad water features, and a stage that will host DJs and live electronic music performances. South Camp Ground will have “human foosball” and the first Firefly CHATs conversations and workshops. Both campgrounds will have a general store, farmer’s market, daily yoga, and new Ranger Stations with communal grills, running water, charging stations, restrooms, and water refill stations.
“Partnering with AEG has been a wonderful thing for the festival and it has given us the ability to be thinking long term and making meaningful investments that are going to change our fan experience,” Firefly director Stephanie Mezzano told Billboard. “The point of making these investments and upgrading it is so that people do feel like there’s a bigger community being built and it’s not just about who’s playing the lineup.”
Panic! at the Disco, Travis Scott, and Post Malone headline the 2019 edition of Firefly, which happens June 21-23.
