You know you are over the hill when . . . sounds like a birthday card from your best friend.
Here’s a new marker: You know you’re old when there is a big music festival and you don’t recognize the names of any of the performers.M
The Black Keys, Jack White and more than 30 other acts will hit the stage for the Firefly Music Festival at the Woodlands of Dover International Speedway in Delaware. The two-day festival kicks off July 20 through July 22, and also features John Legend, Death Cab for Cutie and Lupe Fiasco.
Other featured acts include Passion Pit, OK Go, Tinie Tempah and Young the Giant.
I’m admitting total ignorance of this genre of music.
This festival must be a big deal. It’s gotten attention from media in Philadelphia, New York and Washington, D.C.
A quick visit to the event website shows there is more than music in what is billed as “unique” dining experiences and beverages from local breweries and wineries.
In addition, a portion of the proceeds benefit a music program at St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital.
Tickets are set to go on sale Thursday.
The festival coincides with the first weekend of the Delaware State Fair. (I know who Jason Aldean is!)
Is some indication that Central Delaware could be branded as a music mecca? We’ll see!
