The Arctic Monkeys are back! The Firefly lineup was released today which included the band as one of the headliners. This comes after a four year hiatus following the completion of their AM tour in 2014. Last year rumors began buzzing that the group was back in the studio after pictures on Instagram showed them in LA together. The album is supposed to come out this year with the first single being released as soon as this month. While this hasn’t been confirmed, them showing up on a festival line up is a pretty good indicator of great things to come.
Also returning from a hiatus is rapper Eminem. Looks like he is going to have a very busy year. After releasing a new album, “Revival”, this past December he has had new performances popping up left and right. From Coachella in California to Bonnaroo in Tennessee to Firefly in Delaware, he will be dominating the festival circuit this season. Alongside him at Firefly will be The Killers (who have also shown up on a quite a few line ups this year), and Kendrick Lamar.
The rest of the lineup is just as strong as the headliners with Odesza, Lil Wayne, Logic, Martin Garrix, SZA, Alt-J, and many more providing support.
