Steve Aoki, Chainsmokers Reschedule Firefly Sets After Saturday Night Evacuation
After a massive thunderstorm forced an early end to the Firefly festivities on Saturday night (June 20), at least two artists have rescheduled their sets for Sunday (June 21) timeslots.
Steve Aoki's evening-ending Saturday set is now a 2:30-3:30 p.m. performance at the Backyard Stage, and Chainsmokers' canceled two-hour Saturday night set has been turned into a one-hour stint from 11 p.m. to midnight at the Pavilion Stage.
It seems Kid Cudi's abbreviated show (he played 20 minutes before getting shut down) will not pick up on Sunday. Additionally, Kings of Leon's aborted set will not happen. KoL bassist Jared Followill tweeted he was "bummed" the band's set got rained out, and that he hoped to return to Delaware "soon."
Thanks to @LiveAtFirefly for being such a cool festival. So bummed we got rained out. Hopefully we can be back soon.— Jared Followill (@youngfollowill) June 21, 2015
