Arctic Monkeys, Kendrick Lamar and more announced for Firefly Festival

Arctic Monkeys

Arctic Monkeys

The 2018 festival will feature the return of staple Firefly attractions, with additions being announced as the festival approaches.

The full lineup includes ODESZA, Lil Wayne, Logic, Martin Garrix, GZA, Alt-J, Portugal.

The Wilmington News Journal reports that he will join Kendrick Lamar and rockers Arctic Monkeys and the Killers for the four day annual musical event. It always feels like a triumph to win so many people over who were waiting for a band.

It's that time again when all the mega music festivals begin rolling out their very similar and unimaginative lineups.

General Admission and VIP pass options go on sale Friday, Jan. 12 at 10am ET through FireflyFestival.com. Artists don't ASK festivals if they can come. The Governors Ball will take place from June 1 to 3.

Arctic Monkeys' latest record, AM, became the band's fifth consecutive number one upon its release in September 2013.

Last year, bassist Nick O'Malley told motorcycle magazine For The Ride that if the new album isn't out in 2018, "we've got problems".

It's already known that recording for their next album began at the end of a year ago.
