Dover’s Firefly Festival extended to four days

After a successful first two years, Dover’s Firefly Festival will add a fourth day of music next year.

The third annual music festival will grow to four days on the grounds of Dover International Speedway next June.  The festival organizers announced Monday that the concerts will start late in the afternoon on Thursday, June 19.  The music will continue through the weekend before wrapping up Sunday night, June 22.  

More than 60,000 people attended last year’s event.  Earlier this year, organizers announced plans to continue the festival in Dover for the next ten years.

Anyone who has already purchased tickets for what they thought was a three-day festival will automatically be upgraded to a four-day pass.

The festival is also launching a ticket deal for Cyber Monday, December 2.  That day is the final time to purchase tickets before the concert line-up is released.  It’s also the last day to buy tickets at the lowest prices.  On Monday, a four-day pass will be sold for $199.  Four-day VIP passes will be available for $699.  

The festival line-up should be announced in early 2014.

Earlier Monday, Firefly organizers published the festival’s official After Movie of Firefly 2013:
