Firefly Music Festival 2022 preview:




The age of ten is a turning point for people. That extra digit says you’ve made it through many of the childhood experiences on your way to early adulthood. You’ve learned, grown, achieved, and maybe even loved for the first time, but may have also known loss and heartache. That pivotal first nine years is the same for music festivals.

From inception to execution, music festivals are a miracle of moving parts, ingenuity, passion, and hard work. So, it goes without saying that recreating that formula for ten years speaks to Firefly’s tenacity even amidst things like a global pandemic, weather emergencies and the like and is a testament to their grit.

This year’s iteration will play host to a drag show brunch and drag show bingo dinner, a newly-designed rotating main stage allowing for much quicker turnaround time between artists, a stellar lineup of cuisines to fit any palate and a lot more to celebrate the tenth birthday.

Here are a few artists who will grace the stages at Firefly ’22 that you won’t want to miss!

The Backseat Lovers

John Summit

Rising EDM artist John Summit has been tearing up the festival circuit at places like Coachella, Lollapalooza and Tomorrowland and is set to bring his unique brand of dance heavy bangers to Firefly

Sueco

His unique brand melds alt, indie and rap together so harmoniously with influences of emo and pop punk mixed in. He is a masterful mixer and is a personal standout for me at Firefly.

The Regrettes

LA-based garage punk band The Regrettes will be one of the most sought after sets of the weekend.

Yungblud

Easily one of the most electrifying artists to land at Firefly this year, Yungblud pays particular homage to frontmen everywhere – and I would even call him “Mercury-esque.”
