Firefly Music Festival joins a number of other festivals which have had to cancel or postpone their event.
Recently, the series of Danny Wimmer Presents festivals, including Epicenter, Welcome To Rockville and Sonic Temple Art + Music Festival announced cancelations as well as adjustments to their fall festivals.
Similarly, Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival rescheduled for the fall as well. That news comes shortly after another June festival, Glastonbury, completely canceled their 50th-anniversary festival for 2020.
