I don’t actually live in Delaware, I live in South Carolina. I know, that would be a really long drive. 

Anyways, I have this weird habit where I stalk my favorite musicians on the internet. (Taylor Swift, Andrew McMahon, Halsey, The Chainsmokers, etc.) I go to their websites and look at all their merch, concerts, and whatever else is on there. 

Well, if you know me, then you must know that I love concerts, and there’s almost always a concert I want to go see. 

This time, I was on the Twenty One Pilots official website, and I saw that they were playing in June, on dates that were close to my birthday (June 28th). I looked at where they were playing, and I realized it was a music festival. 

I’ve only ever been to Sunfest, back in 2013. I was 8 years old, and my Mom was pregnant with my sister, so I can imagine it would be a lot harder to go to one with an extra person (especially when that ‘extra person’ is your three year old sister).

But, while it would be a huge hassle just to get to Delaware and find a hotel, we would be seeing Twenty One Pilots live in concert. 

I’m literally the only person in my family who listens to them, so I would be the only one actually enjoying the concert. Which, to me, is pretty sad. I keep telling my parents (and my brother) that they might actually like Twenty One Pilots, if they would just let me show them some of their music. 

Anyways, here’s the lineup for the 2017 Firefly Music Fest:
