On the (Fire)fly

Last month, myself and a few friends packed up the car and set out for the Woodlands in Dover, Delaware for Firefly 2014. Firefly is a music festival that made its debut in 2012 with just 30,000 attendees on 87 acres of land. Three years later, what is considered the 'East Coast's Premier Music Experience', has expanded to a whopping 300 acres; large enough to support the 80,000 festival goers over the four day weekend. This year's lineup was not one to disappoint with the Foo Fighters, Outkast, and Jack Johnson heading the bill. Other notable acts like Grouplove, MS MR, Childish Gambino, and Beck rounded out the festival quite nicely.

We camped out in the extreme heat (temperatures reached 95 degrees on the first day), woke up at first light in hopes of getting a spot at the charging station, and lived off of the ice coffee served on site. One of the best weekends of my summer so far and I cannot wait to see what next year's festival brings...(I may have already purchased my tickets shhh.)

Yes, that is actual Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins aka members of "The Holy Shits." 

This was just one small section of the campsite. 

(I told you I lived off of iced coffee.)

I had the opportunity to meet MS MR (you should totally check them out) and tried my best to make them laugh. (I think I may have succeeded...)

Jack Johnson and the Lumineers! 

 Until next year!
