DOVER, Del.- The Firefly Music Festival is coming back to Dover next year.

That is what organizers of the event said in a press release late Tuesday, stating, "Coming off a highly successful inaugural event, Dover International Speedway and Red Frog Events are pleased to announce a renewed partnership that will bring the East Coast's premier music event, Firefly Music Festival, back to Delaware in 2013."

It is the type of news that Dipak Patel, owner of Raceway Liquors was pleased to hear. 

"I'm excited it's coming back," he said. "It's much better than race time. All the concert people were coming into my store."

Shannon Collins, a manager at Kirby and Holloway, said the family restaurant was jam-packed with hungry concertgoers looking for a bite to eat.

"We had phenomenal business here especially for our breakfast," she said. "You could tell that everybody had their wrist bands on so you knew where they were coming from."

The multiple-day festival gave Parth Patel's hotel a crowd he was not expecting. After all, his family took ownership only 10 days ago.

"It's awesome, we were busy and we were sold out for two nights and also Sunday night," Patel said.

Organizers have not announced which bands will take the stage or when the festival will actually take place next year.

Tickets go on sale on Wednesday at noon.
