  • Sarah Barban

    Favorite band: The Wonder Years
    Favorite song: "I'll Play My Game Beneath the Spin Light" by Brand New.
    Favorite concert: Brand New at the NorVa in Norfolk, Va in 2008.
    Advice for festival-goers: Ladies, choose your clothing wisely. While a dress may keep you cooler, you're going to want an outfit that has pockets because you don't want to be lugging a purse around.
    Must-have item: Sun block and a water bottle. Without either of you'll be miserable.
    Firefly band not to miss: The Last Bison
    Jesse Chadderdon
    Favorite band: The Clash
    Favorite song: "September Gurls" by Big Star
    Favorite concert: Drive-By Truckers, Bowery Ballroom, New Year's Eve 2005
    Advice for festival-goers: Don't overdo it. There's nowhere to go once you realize you've had too much of a good thing.
    Must-have item: I'd say a flask, but festival organizers probably wouldn't like that too much.
    Firefly band not to miss: Vampire Weekend
    Scott Goss

    Favorite band: Fugazi
    Favorite song: "Tighten Up" by Archie Bell and the Drells
    Favorite concert: Beck at the Spectrum, March 30, 1997
    Advice for festival-goers: If the crowd has to part to make room for you to noodle dance, you're a jerk and you need to stop.
    Must-have item: Water
    Firefly band not to miss: Public Enemy
    Jennifer Hayes

    Favorite band: Old 97s
    Favorite song: "I'll Remember" by Madonna
    Favorite concert: Virgin Mobile Festival, Pimlico Raceway, 2007. My favorite band at the time, Incubus, was playing.
    Advice for festival-goers: Wear comfy shoes and socks or else you will get blisters.
    Must-have item: At least one tank top. It gets so hot with all those sweaty people clustered in one area.
    Firefly band not to miss: Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers – classic rock at its best.
    Sarah Lake

    Favorite band: Red Hot Chili Peppers
    Favorite song: "Soul to Squeeze" by Red Hot Chili Peppers
    Favorite concert: Virgin Festival, Pimlico Raceway, 2006. I saw Wolf Mother, The Killers, Gnarls Barkley, The Raconteurs, The Who and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
    Advice for festival-goers: Be respectful toward your fellow festival goers. Everyone wants to have a good time, so don't cut in line or push in front of people to get closer to the stage. You have to earn the front row.
    Page 2 of 2 - Must-have item: Firefly is setting up water stations and has invited festival goers to bring an empty water bottle that they will fill. Stay hydrated!
    Firefly band not to miss: Red Hot Chili Peppers

    Andre Lamar
    Favorite band: Jamiroquai
    Favorite song: "Return of the Space Cowboy," by Jamiroquai
    Favorite concert: Lupe Fiasco, Firefly Music Festival, 2012
    Advice for festival-goers: Don't crowd surf without wearing a shirt.

    Christine Miller

    Favorite band: Modest Mouse
    Favorite song: "Burning Photographs" by Ryan Adams
    Favorite concert: Wilco in Mobile, Ala. on March 3, 2008
    Advice for festival goers: Stay hydrated. It will be hot and you won't even realize how dehydrated you're getting until you're so sore that you can hardly walk.
    Must-have item: Sunscreen and hand sanitizer
    Firefly band not to miss: Dispatch
    Katie Riggan

    Favorite band: Marah
    Favorite song: "Round Eye Blues" by Marah
    Favorite concert: My Morning Jacket, Bonnaroo, 2006
    Advice for festival-goers: There's no way you're going to see every band, so write down who you think you'll want to see, and where they're playing before arriving. But then be willing to go with the flow if you happen upon something cool.
    Must-have item: Sunscreen
    Firefly band not to miss: Alabama Shakes
