Meet the folks ready to bring you wall to wall coverage of this year's Firefly Festival.
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
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
Favorite band: Fugazi
Favorite song: "Tighten Up" by Archie Bell and the Drells

Firefly band not to miss: Public Enemy
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.

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.
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!
