DOVER, Del. – Firefly Music Festival is returning to The Woodlands for the fifth year on June 16-19, 2016. Along with headliners Mumford & Sons, Kings of Leon, Florence & The Machine, and Deadmau5, the lineup also includes Ellie Goulding, Disclosure, Blink-182, Death Cab for Cutie, M83, Tame Impala, The 1975, A$AP Rocky, Of Monsters and Men, Major Lazer, Chvrches, and more than 100 additional acts.

General Admission and VIP pass options go on sale Friday, Nov. 20 at 11am EST through FireflyFestival.com. General Admission passes start at $279. Camping packages will also be available for purchase at this time.
 
"We wanted the 2016 lineup to reach a wide audience while resonating with our core Firefly community more than ever before," says Christiane Pheil, Talent and Experience Director at Firefly Music Festival. "We're confident this lineup does just that, and we look forward to celebrating our fifth year with music fans from around the world."
 
In 2016, guests can expect the return of favorite attractions such as the Dogfish Head Brewery, The Beercade, The Coffee House, The Market, The Thicket, and Hammock Hangout. New experiences will also debut at the festival in June.
 
Firefly is partnered with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital for the fifth year through their Music Gives to St. Jude Kids program. Festival attendees can support the lifesaving work of St. Jude on-site and leading up to the event through a variety of digital, mobile and live donation opportunities. In addition, Firefly is donating a percentage of proceeds from two pass options to St. Jude. Donations from Firefly fans will go towards Red Frog Events’ $25 million commitment to the St. Jude Red Frog Events Proton Therapy Center, opening in late 2015 on St. Jude’s campus in Memphis.
