The 2016 Firefly Festival is right around the corner, helping to kick off another smokin’ summer festival season. We know you’ve got your sights set on headliners Kings of Leon, Florence & The Machine, and Mumford & Sons, but did you decide who else on this year’s line-up that you simply must see?

Delaware’s four day event spanning from June 16-19 can seem pretty overwhelming, so we’ll make it easy on you. From Blink 182 to Elle King to Son Little, our 2016 Firefly picks would never steer you wrong.

Here’s who you should see and why…
