Tom Petty, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Vampire Weekend to headline Firefly Festival in Delaware in June

The lineup for the 2013 Firefly Music Festival in Dover, Delaware this June was announced this morning, and it's looking like a winner.

Marquee names start with Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers and Red Hot Chili Peppers and include Vampire Weekend, Azealia Banks, Kendrick Lamar, The Lumineers, Public Enemy, MGMT, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Ellie Goulding, Alabama Shakes, Avett Brothers, Dr. Dog, Calvin Harris, Japandroids, Spinto Band, the Walkmen and Amanda Palmer.

In other words, it's loaded. Last July's inaugural Firefly was a three-day four-stage event featuring the Black Keys, Jack White and The Killers, located in a beautiful wooded glade adjacent to the Dover Downs speedway. In 2013, the experience will be repeated a month earlier on June 21 to 23 as the fest swells to include 71 acts, which are enumerated in the video below.

Tickets go on sale Thursday at noon at FireflyFestival.com. Your move, Made In America.
