Firefly Music Festival 2013

In June I went to the 2nd Firefly Music Festival in Dover Delaware and had a blast! My friends and I went  last year  and were eager to see if the second year would be as awesome.
 
 So much awesomeness!

We ran into so much traffic coming in on Friday. That was Problem #1 with doubling the size of attendees.

 Bad Sunburn.

 Early in the day. Not so many crowds.

 Late at night. Way too many crowds. Red Hot Chili Peppers. I think.


 Super Moon!

 More pictures of crowds and stages. 



Bridge pictures are mandatory, right?


Overall, Firefly year 2 was great. I got to see some awesome bands (Delta Rae, The Last Bison, Tom Petty, etc.), however there were way too many people! An event shouldn't double the number of attendees and expect it to be ok. We waited in ridiculous traffic getting into Delaware, getting a campsite, and at some of the food and drink booths. 

Positives: Much better water stations this year! Great music lineup, even though The Lumineers cancelled, good food choices, the weather, fun new activities like the silent disco and Heinekin Dome. 

Negatives: Lack of working cell phone chargers, crazy overlapping lineups which didn't made you miss the first 15 minutes of almost every set, headliners (they were ok, but not nearly as good as 2012), showers that close at midnight.


We had a lot of fun, got exhausted and some of us got sunburned. Overall consensus: 2012 > 2013, but 2013 was great too.
