The 2014 Firefly Music Festival kicked into high gear on Friday, June 20, after an abbreviated opening day schedule last night. All seven stages were open for business and the music flowed non-stop from 12:30 pm until around 2 a.m. with a stellar headline set performed by the Foo Fighters.
Chance the Rapper packed the Lawn Stage opposite a simultaneous high-energy performance by Arctic Monkeys. Portugal the Man and Young the Giant were other key artists to watch on Friday. Jack Antonoff of Fun also showed off his side project, Bleachers, while his other band recuperates from the superstardom attained by “Some Nights.”
Music will again commence at 12:30 p.m. on Saturday, with a featured headline set by Outkast. The Coffee House Stage is also worth checking out as artists such as Grouplove and The Wild Feathers will present encore performances in a more intimate setting. Beck, Imagine Dragons, Cage the Elephant and Twenty One Pilots are just a sample of tomorrow's artists to see.
Festival management also announced today that Firefly will return in 2015. Tickets will go on sale this Wednesday and the music festival will take place June 18-21.
