In addition to all that music the festival will include several pleasurable attractions such as a large-scale dance hall, BBQ area, saloon, and a marketplace filled with western goods and products.  There will also be a family-friendly area.

“Firefly, combined with its home at The Woodlands of Dover International Speedway, has established the East Coast’s standard when it comes to delivering a top-notch music festival,” Firerfly/Big Barrel director Greg Bostrom said.  “We’ll leverage the Firefly foundation and our collective backgrounds bringing preeminent music festivals to life to establish Big Barrel as the benchmark for country music experiences this side of the Mississippi River.”
