Firefly Spotlight: Attractions

In addition to all the music at nine different stages throughout The Woodlands there are many activities scattered around the site to enjoy. Here's a look at some of my favorite things to check out during the weekend.
The Thicket- Want to dance? Head on over to The Thicket! This silent disco has two DJs playing tunes non-stop. You pick up headphones when you enter and can switch between the two different stations to listen to whichever DJ is playing your favorite songs. It's also fun to take off the headphones every once in a while and just watch all the people dancing and singing without any music playing. Hidden in the trees this spot also provides good shade coverage
The Nook- Formally known as the Hammock Hangout, this is where I go whenever I need to relax. You can bring your own hammock to tie to the trees or sit in one of the seating options that is already provided. In the past this used to be hammocks but it looks like they will have new seating options this year. I tend to stop by here every year on Sunday to help myself gain some energy midway through the last day of the festival.

The Brewery- This is the perfect place to get off your feet and have a drink. It features Dogfish Head beer and has a bunch of seating. You can see and hear the main stage from there so you don't have to miss out on the music. Dogfish Head has a bunch of great brews including their famous 60 and 90 Minute IPAs. They even make a special beer just for Firefly called Firefly Ale. Most of the area is covered by a giant tent, making it a great spot to get away from the sun for a bit.
The Fort- I'm very excited to check out The Fort which is a new attraction this year. It is one of four attractions that were proposed to fans. You were able to vote online for your favorite option and this was the winner. I voted for this one and am thrilled to see it come to life. Since it's new I'm not sure what exactly it will look like but it consists of a multi level bar and patio. It is designed to feature many sustainable materials including shipping containers and other recycled materials. There will be lawn games, food trucks and views of the Porch and Lawn stages. Sounds like the perfect hangout spot to me!
