Mumford & Sons, Deadmau5, Earth Wind & Fire, Blink 182 to Rock Delaware’s Firefly Festival

Firefly Music Festival released their official 2016 lineup -- packed full of big names -- in a surprise announcement early Wednesday morning.

Headliners include Mumford & Songs, Kings of Leon, Florence and the Machine, and Deadmau5. 

"We wanted the 2016 lineup to reach a wide audience while resonating with our core Firefly community more than ever before," says Christiane Pheil, Talent and Experience Director at Firefly Music Festival. "We're confident this lineup does just that, and we look forward to celebrating our fifth year with music fans from around the world."

Other big names playing the festival include Of Monsters and Men, Death Cab for Cutie, Blink 182, Fetty Wap and legendary Earth Wind & Fire.

Firefly's first festival was held in 2012 at The Woodlands in Dover, Delaware. Since then, the festival has more than doubled in size, now featuring more than 100 performances on seven different stages over the course of four days.
