New festival added to the list

Coachella, Pitchfork, Lollapalooza, festivals around the country are all the rage for more bang for your buck in terms of music.  For a slightly higher price tag than one concert to see one band, one should seriously consider going to get a day pass to a festival and see numerous well known bands in one day.

The New York Times"Arts Beat" blog boasts the addition of one more festival devoted to pop music in Delaware for a summer time frame. The Firefly Music Festival, a three day event, July 20 to 22, will include more than 40 bands and solo artists will play as well.  John Legend and the indie rock band, Death Cab for Cutie are among the scheduled bands to perform.

It seems that these festivals are successful and the demand is high for them.  With the extreme popularity of Coachella, it may be hard for the Firefly Music festival to keep up, but I guess if the festival concept is getting great response then it will be worth trying festivals devoted to particular genres.
