Firefly Music Festival is one of the biggest music festivals in the United States. This multi-genre music festival is a perfect way to close out your summer with delicious food, incredible live music, and an overall experience you won’t forget.
Firefly has been running since 2012, and since its inception, it has been bringing big names to the stage. In their first year, they had The Killers, The Black Keys, Imagine Dragons, Walk The Moon, and more. Last year, organizers got artists like Billie Eilish, Lizzo, and Tame Impala to hit the stage. This year’s lineup brings some equally heavy-hitting names to the stages.

The headliners this year are some of the biggest names in music. No matter what type of music fan you are, there’s something for you at Firefly, and the headliners are a reflection of that stylistic diversity.
Get To Know Halsey
Halsey rose to fame rather quickly after their debut. They released their EP Room 93 in 2014 and their debut album BADLANDS in 2015, the latter of which charted to number two on the Billboard 200 albums chart. After releasing the song “Closer” with The Chainsmokers in 2016, Halsey was at the top of the pop charts and has stayed there ever since.
This will be Halsey’s first-ever performance at the Firefly Music Festival, but they’re no stranger to the festival format, with several festival stops on their 2022 summer tour. Halsey’s tour spans across the US, and they’ll be in top form at Firefly this September.

My Chemical Romance was one of the most popular bands of the early 2000s, and their fame and talent are still going strong. Their 2006 album The Black Parade was a raging success, with “Welcome to The Black Parade” going triple platinum in the US and double platinum in the UK.
The band broke up back in 2013 but reunited again in 2019. Sadly, their reunion tour was put on hold due to the pandemic, but My Chemical Romance is playing live shows again! This is their first time at Firefly, but the band is playing festivals around the globe during their world tour this summer.
Get To Know Green Day
Another first-time performer at Firefly Music Festival is none other than Green Day. They’ve been making incredible punk rock music since 1987. Their breakout album Dookie in 1994 broke through will force, bringing punk music into the limelight. And American Idiot won a Grammy Award.
The band has a busy year this year. They’re headlining Lollapalooza earlier in the summer, and are touring throughout Europe, in South America, and are closing out their tour at Firefly Music Festival.

Dua Lipa is one of the biggest pop stars in the world at the moment. Her debut album in 2017 was an instant success, and she’s been putting out hit songs ever since. Her recent collaboration with Elton John has spent months on top of the Billboard charts.
This year, her world tour takes her across the US, Europe, South America, and Australia, playing stadiums and festivals all across the world. This will be her first time playing at Firefly, and she’ll be closing out the festival with one of the most entertaining live shows out there.
