Attendance at Firefly has skyrocketed since the first event drew about 30,000 to the woodlands around Dover Downs International Speedway in 2012. Last year, some 80,000 fans showed up.
Chicago-based Red Frog Events, which founded the Firefly festival, teamed up last year with Los Angeles-based Goldenvoice, the group behind the Coachella music festival in California, to promote and produce Firefly.
