Firefly Music Festival becomes the latest event to cancel its 2020 plans due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The festival was scheduled for June 18-21, 2020 in Dover, Delaware. Billie Eilish, Halsey, Khalid, Kali Uchis, Big Boi, Don Tolliver, Rage Against the Machine and more were all slated to take the stage at the annual event. A statement released on the official website instructs ticket holders on the proper procedures for either obtaining a refund or saving their ticket for the new date.
Organizers hope to welcome festival-goers back to The Woodlands in June 2021, the proposed new date for the 2020 event. Other music festivals such as Coachella Music Festival and Something In The Water have pushed their events to later dates.
