Firefly Music Festival works closely 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 or assist with any safety or security needs. If you see something, say something. If anything seems out of place or suspicious, please notify the nearest security, medical, or general staff member.
For the safety of everyone entering the festival, everyone is subject to full and complete airport-style security search prior to entry. This may include a full body pat-down and magnetometer screening before entry. If you would like to be screened by security personnel of your same gender, please let security personnel know prior to the search process. Screening of children will always take place with the consent of a parent or guardian.
Security will confiscate items if they are illegal or on the prohibited items list, and will not return them after the festival is over. If you’re bringing prescription medication, please be sure that the name on the label matches the name on your ID.
Please review the Allowed & Prohibited Items List prior to arriving to the Festival, and email email@example.com
if you have questions.
Each person, their belongings, and their vehicle are subject to search upon entry.
HOW TO GET HELP
Firefly is committed to hosting an inclusive, safe environment for all at The Woodlands. Harassment based on race, ethnicity, color, national origin, citizenship, religion, gender, gender identity, gender presentation, sexual orientation, age, body size, pregnancy, ability, appearance or otherwise will NOT be tolerated. If you are being harassed, are the victim of non consensual touching, or feel otherwise unsafe, please report it to the nearest security, medical or general staff member.
If you need help, here are some places that can help...
If you or someone you know needs medical assistance at the festival, flag down nearby emergency staff or go to the nearest First Aid tent to report the issue.
First Aid Locations:
- Near the South Festival Entrance, next to the Merchandise tent
- Next to the Toyota Music Den
- Near the North Festival Entrance
- At the North Camping Hub
- At the South Camping Hub in the Dover International Speedway Fan Care Center
- In the Public Safety compound at the main Lot 10 Staff Entrance
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.
If you’re the victim of sexual violence or harassment, please report it to the nearest security, medical or general staff member, or go to one of the six First Aid tents or the Our Music My Body tent.
You can also visit Between Friends and Resilience for resources and more information. Their collaborative campaign Our Music My Body will have a tent at Firefly and seeks to raise awareness about sexual harassment at festivals.
Keep in mind the four pillars of consent:
- Consent is Clear
- Consent is Coherent
- Consent is Ongoing
- Consent is Willing
Familiarize yourself with the emergency exits and review the festival map before arriving to 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 cancelled - 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 sent out on social media.
