After weeks of waiting and speculation it seems as if the Firefly Music Festival has finally announced its 2015 lineup. Taking place in Dover, Delaware on June 18th to the 21st the annual event has grown with each passing year.
Headlining the festival is the legendary Beatles member Paul McCartney, returning synth-rockers The Killers and “Use Somebody” hit makers Kings Of Leon. Other notable acts include Morrissey (wow), Snoop Dogg, Foster The People, Zedd, Modest Mouse, Bastille, Empire Of The Sun, Kid Cudi, Hozier, Cage The Elephant, Steve Aoki, Spoon, Sublime With Rome, AWOLNATION, The Kooks, Matt & Kim, Run The Jewels, Walk The Moon, Cold War Kids and many more.
The lineup features an eclectic and diverse range of talent that does well in any live setting. One of the biggest highlights of the festival has to be the left-field inclusion of former Smiths frontman Morrissey. The man does not perform many US festivals and has not in recent years. Despite being a huge grab for Firefly, buyer beware as Morrissey is well known for canceling performances last minute for a variety of reasons. Despite this he is a powerful force live and will deliver a wide variety of hits from his solo catalogue and he may even throw in a Smith song or two.
