The Firefly Music Festival made it through the stormy weather on Saturday night and had a big finish on Sunday.
The sold-out four-day music festival took place at The Woodlands at Dover International Speedway in Delaware with over 90,000 people showing up from all over the country.
The festival is known for bringing in an extremely diverse set of performers, and this year was no different. From The Killers and Paul McCartney to Snoop Dogg and DJ Steve Aoki, Firefly 2015 had artists from so many genres that there really was something for everyone.
However, this year’s festival did have its low points. On Saturday night the festival was evacuated early, due to extremely dangerous weather conditions. While thunder, lightening and torrential rain descended upon Dover, the headliner of that night, Kings of Leon, had their set canceled, leaving many fans disappointed.
Other artists that were scheduled for Saturday, including Steve Aoki, were rescheduled to play on Sunday afternoon. Aoki was perhaps one of the most surprising acts, supplying the crowd with plenty of energy and excitement despite the lingering disappointment from the previous evening.
Plus, the headliners of Sunday night, The Killers, played two covers to honor Kings of Leon and all of their fans who made it to Delaware just to see the canceled band.
All in all, spirits seemed to rise back up on Sunday, as festival-goers (many of them barefoot) danced in the mud to the concert’s final acts.
All except for one young man who climbed up one of the speaker rigs during Snoop Dogg’s set and danced for about ten minutes, only to get arrested when he came down.
But what’s a music festival without some crazy fans, right?
