COVID-19   |  


Safety and security are at the core of an enjoyable experience at Firefly Music Festival.

We work with local, state, and federal authorities to ensure the safest possible experience for our fans, staff, volunteers, and artists. Uniformed and plain-clothed security are present throughout the Festival site and are available 24/7 to respond and assist with any safety or security needs.

To ensure everyone’s safety, some of the security measures you will notice upon your arrival include vehicle searches, bag checks, walk-through metal detectors for all staff and attendees, and dog sweeps.

If you see something, say something. If anything seems out of place or suspicious, please notify the nearest security, medical or general staff member.

COVID-19: We continue to monitor the evolving health mandates and regulations. For the most current COVID-19 information relating to the festival, please refer to the COVID-19 section below, which will be updated as the festival approaches. While safety is our top priority, the risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present.


If you or someone you know needs medical assistance at the festival, flag down nearby emergency staff or go to the nearest First Aid location.

First Aid locations are safe spaces. Be honest with emergency personnel. They are there to help you, not to get you in trouble.

Any information provided to emergency personnel is kept confidential.


Familiarize yourself with the emergency exits and review the festival map before arriving at the festival.

In case of evacuation, stay tuned to Firefly social media channels and mobile app for updates. Evacuation does NOT necessarily mean that the festival is canceled - re-opening is always our goal!

In case of evacuation, when the festival re-opens, updated set times will be available in the Firefly mobile app and shared on social media.
