Firefly 2018 To Be Headlined By Eminem, Arctic Monkeys, The Killers, And Kendrick Lamar
Eminem, Arctic Monkeys, The Killers, Kendrick Lamar, and other artists are lighting up Delaware in this year's Firefly Music Festival.
The organizers of the biggest music and camping festival on the east coast just revealed a star-studded lineup in its seventh year. The 2018 Firefly Music Festival will be held from June 14-17 at the Woodlands in Dover.
Other artists included in this year's edition of the festival are Lil Wayne, Logic, SZA, Alt-J, Odesza, MGMT, Portugal. The Man, Foster The People, and more. Tickets will be on sale on Friday, Jan. 12.
Eminem's Summer Gigs
The "Walk On Water" rapper has a busy schedule ahead. Aside from promoting his new album, Eminem is also set to headline not only one but five music festivals in the coming summer.
The rapper from Detroit is also set to appear onstage in Coachella 2018 along with his collaborator Beyoncé. The festival will also see performances from St. Vincent, The War on Drugs, Tyler The Creator, HAIM, Alvvays, and more. The event will be held from April 13 to 14 and April 20-22.
The 45-year-old will also be in attendance at the 2018 Governors Ball. The music festival held annually in New York City will also feature Jack White (who just announced his new album Boarding House Reach), the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and Travis Scott. The Governors Ball will take place from June 1 to 3.
Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival also announced that Eminem will headline the event with The Killers, Muse, Bon Iver, Paramore, and more. The Tennessee festival will take place from June 7-10.
Arctic Monkeys Return
The other big name at the 2018 Firefly Music Festival is the British band Arctic Monkeys. After a long hiatus, the band is finally working on a new album — their sixth and the follow-up to the insanely successful AM released in 2013.
Members of the band have been teasing the still-untitled new album since last year. In an interview with The Ride, bassist Nick O'Malley stated that they will release new music in 2018 but no exact date has been mentioned.
"If it isn't [out by 2018], we've got problems," he laughed.
Rumor has it that the new album has already been recorded and the first single will come out sometime this month. (However, Arctic Monkeys has not made an official announcement so take this information with an appropriate grain of salt.)
