Jack White, Black Keys to headline Firefly Music Festival in Delaware in July

Jack White, The Black Keys and The Killers are the three leading headliners for the Firefly Music Festival, which will bring in over 40 acts to the Woodlands at Dover International Speedway for a three day fete running from July 20-22. Also on the bill: Flaming Lips, John Legend, Death Cab For Cutie, Chiddy Bang, Girl Talk, Lupe Fiasco, Charles Bradley, Passion Pit, Cake, Young the Giant, Tinie Tempah and more.

Firefly, which is being produced by Chicago based promoter Red Frog Events, is primarily a Bonnaroo style camping festival. Tickets, which go on sale this Thursday April 5 at noon at fireflyfestival.com, are available only as three-day passes starting at $178.

If you're planning your summer concert calendar, yes. you're right: Firefly is happening the same weekend as the WXPN Xponential Festival in Camden. The good news: White will headline on Friday night and the Black Keys on Sunday, meaning that The Killers, Firefly's least attractive top draw, will play on Saturday, the same night Wilco, Avett Bros. and Dr. Dog are at the Susquehanna Bank Center for the Xponential Fest.
