Firefly, The Dover, DE based festival, promoted by AEG Presents, is teaming up with Mandolin, the music industry’s leading digital fan engagement platform, to exclusively live stream this year’s line-up on the platform for free to all fans. As the festival’s official live streaming partner, current Mandolin users get instant access to the show, but new fans can tune in for free by creating a Mandolin account.
The four-day concert begins on Thursday, September 23rd in The Woodlands of Dover International Speedway, and offers over 100 performances throughout the weekend. This year's headliners include Billie Eilish, Diplo, Marc Rebillet and Roddy Ricch, among others.
Stephanie Mezzano, Vice President & Firefly Music Festival Director, shared her excitement about the virtual experience. “We are really excited to be partnering with Mandolin for this year’s livestream and can't wait for Firefly fans around the world to enjoy the show on the best platform in the market.”
In addition to interactive streaming, including fan control of 360 multicam views on select stages, Mandolin will also offer virtual VIP Meet and Greets with select artists on the line-up via its VIP Suite—the latest addition to the Mandolin Live+ platform.
This is AEG Presents and Mandolin's second partnership in the virtual concerts space, having first teamed up to stream "A Night at the Ryman with Lauren Daigle and Friends" earlier this year.
“Firefly Music Festival is going to be such a special event for fans: an incredible line-up, an incredible location—we’re so excited to help bring that experience to fans worldwide,” says Mandolin CEO & Co-Founder Mary Kay Huse, “With Mandolin, fans at home will be able to feel like they’re there and fans at the event will be able to find new and cool ways to engage with artists.”
