In 2016, Firefly Music Festival announced it would have its fans help curate its 2017 lineup. Before this initiative, we hadn't seen that level of engagement between a festival and its fans before, and so we reported on it with delight. Well, this week the east coast’s largest music and camping festival took its relationship with its fans even further when it unveiled a month-long campaign to celebrate their fans.
The new initiative stems from their continued emphasis on embracing fan feedback and utilizing it to curate everything from the lineup – which was stunningly diverse last year thanks to fan involvement – to the all the activities and experiences at the annual festival in June in Dover, Delaware.
Each week in November, Firefly organizers will launch a new survey to engage with fans through voting on various aspects of the festival including artists, on-site attractions and themes, food and drink, and more. Fans will also have the opportunity to be featured on Firefly’s social media channels and enter contests with the chance to win passes to the 2018 festival. Talk about rolling out the welcome mat for festival-goers!
“We loved implementing fan-favorites at Firefly last year,” said Stephanie Mezzano, Chief Operating Officer at Firefly Music Festival. “Our team is looking forward to seeing what our fans vote on for the 2018 festival and we’re excited to celebrate the Firefly community throughout the entire month of November.”
