The 2018 Firefly Music Festival is happening from June 14-17 at The Woodlands of Dover, DE, and as usual, it's got the best alt/indie lineup in town.

If you feel like you've seen Eminem and The Killers on damn near every festival lineup this year, you're not far off. Firefy Music Festival unveiled its 2018 lineup Thursday, and both proven masters of holding down a festival crowd are at the top of the bill.

After years of anticipation, Arctic Monkeys have finally announced their return with their first confirmed tour date of 2018.

Fans of the band on Reddit have speculated that the video's numbers show potential tour dates and the geographical co-ordinates of where they'll play.
