The Firefly Festival edition


The Delaware fest charmed us with its debut last summer — sprawling campgrounds, hot-air balloon rides, picturesque vineyard drinking dens, and, oh, a kick-ass lineup.

This year, party people Calvin Harris and Ellie Goulding are playing back-to-back Friday sets (here’s to hoping for a surprise collab), My Morning Jacket’s Jim James goes his own way (and we follow), and a slew of up-and-coming acts (Haim, Kishi Bashi, Selah Sue) make showing up early easy.
