“We wanted the 2016 lineup to reach a wide audience while resonating with our core Firefly community,” says Christiane Pheil, Talent and Experience Director at Firefly Music Festival. “We’re confident this lineup does just that, and we look forward to celebrating our fifth year with music fans from around the world.”

Firefly is partnered with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital for the fifth year through their Music Gives to St. Jude Kids program.

In addition, Firefly is donating a percentage of proceeds from two pass options to St. Jude. Donations from Firefly fans will go towards Red Frog Events’ $25 million commitment to the St. Jude Red Frog Events Proton Therapy Center, opening in late 2015 on St. Jude’s campus in Memphis.
