Green Day, My Chemical Romance, Dua Lipa and Halsey will headline the 2022 Firefly Festival, which will return to the Woodlands at Dover between Sept. 22 and 25.

The 2022 festival will be only the second to be held in the early fall.

The event — previously held annually in June — was moved to September in 2021 due to the pandemic. COVID forced festival organizers to cancel the event in 2020.


“After last year’s rapturous return, Firefly 2022 is packed full of everything that makes the festival so special – incredible sets from iconic artists, the best food and beverage offerings within the Delaware Valley, treehouse DJ sets, spirited drag brunches and a joyful pride parade; unique, moments that give Firefly its characteristic sense of fun, flare and community,” said festival organizers in a press release.

Fans appeared to have mixed thoughts on the lineup after it was posted to the Firefly Facebook page Tuesday.

“Trash lineup as usual. Glad I’m going to Lost Lands instead,” wrote one festivalhead.

“​​I only know 5 people in this whole list,” wrote another.

“No Stevie Nicks or a similar big name?? Pretty underwhelming for a 10th anniversary lineup,” wrote one fan, whose comment earned discontent from some other Facebook users.

“Green Day is one of the biggest names in rock lol,” one fan responded. Another followed up, saying, “right!? So is Weezer!”

“Their line up is actually decent this year… you all down???,” said one.

Presale for the festival will begin Friday, Feb. 25 at 10 a.m.

Presale wristbands cost $299 for a regular weekend pass, $739 for a VIP weekend pass and $2,699 for a Super VIP weekend pass.
