The second annual Firefly Music Festival announces its impressive 2013 lineup

Red Hot Chili Peppers, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers Among Firefly Headliners

If you live on the East Coast and are a music fan, chances are you've always hoped for a major festival on your side of the country. That's exactly what Firefly Music Festival promises to be. The three-day summer festival will take place June 21-23 in Dover, Delaware and the lineup has fans excited for this little-known music event. 

As an attendant of last year's inaugural event, I must admit the atmosphere coupled with the great lineup made for a fun intimate few days at The Woodlands. The lineup announcement video that accompanied the release of their lineup is comprised of footage from the crowd during last year's festival (embedded below) and it seems I wasn't the only one that had a good time.

This year, the lineup will include heavyweight headliners Red Hot Chili Peppers and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers along with Vampire Weekend and Foster The People. Firefly offers a good mix of rock, pop, hip hop and dance performers so there is something for everyone in this lineup. The list is an enticing one for any music lover. It includes Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Avett Brothers and Passion Pit. On the pop side, you have British pop sensation Ellie Goulding along with MGMT. Of course, it wouldn't be a festival without indie favorites like Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, The Lumineers, Imagine Dragons and Matt & Kim. 

Want some hip hop acts on your three day itinerary? You've got industry newcomers Kendrick Lamar and Azealia Banks to satisfy your fix. This lineup is a pretty well rounded one as far as variety goes. Three Day passes go on sale tomorrow Feb. 21 and are sure to sell out very quickly, so be sure to order yours quick!
