It may be the middle of fall but already we’re getting a first glance at festival season. One of the first to start up some excitement is Firefly Music Festival.

Featuring some mind-blowing line ups, it’s no doubt 2016 festivals are going to have some killer names. Of course, the festival has the big ones, Florence + The Machine,  Tame Impala, Kings of Leon and Death Cab For Cutie. But along with the veterans, there are some show stopping hidden gems joining the line up.


An American band responsible for making some of the most catchy well thought-out songs. Their first release Never Trust a Happy Song, held their first hit song, Tongue Tied, that you probably still get stuck in your head.

Oh Wonder


Oh Wonder’s debut album released in last September and already they’ve caught fire. With hardy fan-bases in the UK, the pair was taking over Canada as well. With their quick success, they’ll surely be ruling this year’s festivals.



The new band on the block with a lot to prove. Transviolet is a synth-rock mixing based in LA. They’re music is unforgettable once you hear it. The perfect mixing darkness and rock.

Coleman Hell

Coleman Hell, another man catching fire. With his recent success’ you’ll probably see his name headlining a few festivals this season. His EP full of stunning songs and an album in the works, he’ll definitely be in the circuit this year.

The Struts


Rockers from the UK, The Struts are everything you’d expect by looking at them. They go hard, loud and  make a memorable show.



Emotional, talented and simply flawless  Wet is a band you have to experience. Touring around the world they’ve been introducing their sound to crowds in intimate venues one show at a time.



Somewhere between The Ting Tings and MS MR, POWERS are a visual treat.  With the duo incorporating style into their blend of electro, they’re not only good, they’re interesting.

Atlas Genius


Already playing the Hangout Music Fest, Atlas Genius will also be at Firefly. The Australian duo started in 2011, since then, they’ve released two albums, the latest of which, Inanimate Objects, showcases the growth and talent of the young musicians. Their first album exploded onto the scene catching praise from Rolling Stone. With the success of Inanimate Objects, they’ll be another name found on festivals bills on their upswing.

Catfish & The Bottlemen


The always dark and brooding rock stars in the making. Seeing them at Osheaga, you get entrapped in their aura of pure rock. They’re a tribute to everything good about music, adding their own attitude and mark along their way to the top of the rock scene.

But whatever floats your boat, there’s something for you. The festival has everyone from Ludacis to Earth, Wind, & Fire. Check out the full line up below.
