Delaware To Lose Millions As Firefly Cancels Amid COVID-19

The Firefly Music Festival has been canceled according to a statement on the organization’s website.

The festival contributes tens of millions of dollars to the regional economy and creates the equivalent of hundreds of full-time jobs, according to a 2014 study.

Statement:

At the direction of state and local authorities and federal guidelines amid the COVID-19 pandemic, we are saddened to confirm the cancellation of Firefly Music Festival 2020. We take the safety and health of our fans, staff and community seriously and we urge everyone to follow the guidelines and protocols put forth by public health officials.

We are deeply disappointed by this difficult decision, one that impacts our fans and our incredible team of performers, crew, vendors & our community in Dover, Delaware.

In these unprecedented times, we send you our love. Thank you for your support and we look forward to welcoming you in the Woodlands in June 2021 where we will dance, sing and celebrate live music together.

All Firefly 2020 ticket holders who purchased tickets through our official ticket provider, Elevate, will receive a full refund or, if you choose, you may transfer your ticket to Firefly 2021. You will receive an email outlining the refund and transfer process by Friday, March 27, 2020. If you do not receive an email or have any questions, please contact Festival Ticketing Support by emailing support@festivalticketing.com. Hours of operation are Monday through Friday, 8:00AM – 5:00PM MST (Arizona Time).
