Where: The Woodlands at Dover International Speedway
Earn your stamp: The second-annual Fireﬂy Music Festival offers on-site glamping (beds, showers, air-conditioned tents), hot-air balloon rides over the stages, and a lineup that holds its own against any big-time fest. The 2013 plans are in the works, but expect bands along the lines of the Black Keys and Jack White.
When to go: July 21-23. If you go only one day, choose Saturday. You’ll get the most bang for your buck with more than 20 acts playing from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.
Plan it now: Day passes from $68; VIP passes are $598 and include tickets, meals, and access to special viewing platforms. ﬁreﬂyfestival.com
