Festival organizers say single day tickets will not be available due to the expected sell out.

Music fans will have even more company at the fourth annual Firefly Festival this June. Red Frog Events, which produces the event, expects to reach their maximum capacity of 90,000 people soon.

According to Firefly director Greg Bostrom, this year’s event is building on last year’s wildly successful festival, which saw more than 80,000 in attendance. “This, in turn, eliminated our ability to offer single day general admission passes in 2015 as we plan to welcome 90,000 attendees, which will bring us to capacity this year.”

Bostrom said there are a limited number of four-day tickets available at the regular price of $299. When those are gone, the price jumps to $329. 

Schedule released

Festival organizers have also revealed more details about which artists will be performing and on what dates.

The festival opens on Thursday night with top billing acts including The Kooks and Charli XCX. Friday night will feature Paul McCartney, Morrissey and Modest Mouse. Kings of Leon will headline Saturday night along with Foster the People, Kid Cudi and Steve Aoki. The Killers will end the festival Sunday night along with Snoop Dogg, and Bastille.
