Firefly offers a less overwhelming alternative to mega-festivals like Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza and stands as the only mainstream multi-day music festival that is easily accessible to D.C. area residents.
Last year’s concertgoers were able to take advantage of a bus shuttle service that offered round trip service to the festival from the District, Alexandria, Annandale, Springfield, Annapolis and Baltimore.
Firefly hasn’t announced whether the shuttle service will operate this year.
On-site camping is an interesting lodging option for attendees. For a premium, Glamping provides campers with a private tent, access to an air-conditioned lounge and private showers.
Compared to last year’s estimated 30,000 to 40,000 attendees per day, the 2013 Firefly Festival is expected to be a little more crowded.
Below is a video announcing the 2013 lineup, featuring video from last year’s festival:
