Eminem, Kendrick Lamar headline 2018 Firefly Festival lineup

Eminem, Kendrick Lamar headline 2018 Firefly Festival lineup

The Wilmington News Journal reports that he will join Kendrick Lamar and rockers Arctic Monkeys and the Killers for the four day annual musical event.

While we were excited for the lineup just announced for Firefly Music Festival, Halsey, who performed in 2015, was quick to point out the lack of female performers on the lineup.

Firefly Music Festival's seventh run - set up at the Woodlands in the USA state of DE - will also see performances from Foster the People, MGMT and alt-J.

Alex released a second album with supergroup The Last Shadow Puppets in 2016 while Matt Helders played the drums on Iggy Pop's album "Post Pop Depression".

Firefly isn't exactly one of the better-booked big festivals out there, but this year's lineup does feature some other intriguing names, including Lil Wayne, SZA, alt-J, MGMT, Jimmy Eat World, Chromeo, Westside Gunn and Conway, Knox Fortune, and Amen Dunes.

And once again the list of almost 100 artists performing also includes one local act. Early Bird passes will go on sale Friday, Jan. 12 at 10 a.m. and start at $269 for a basic general admission entry.

Firefly Music Festival is back with a solid new lineup for 2018.
