Music festivals should be a place where you can let go and enjoy yourself among friends and lots of great music. However, some people go to events with the intention of getting too fucked up, whether on alcohol or other substances, and this doesn’t always lead to the best results. One many at Firefly Music Festival this weekend was apprehended after stripped naked, streaked through the venue and knocked over sound gear.
Official reports are that “there were no reported injuries at the Bud Light tent and no reports of assaults connected to the incident.” However, a string of tweets after searching “naked firefly” on Twitter tells a different story…
Just got punched in the face by a naked man at Firefly. What are you doing this weekend nerds?

Dover police Cpl. Mark Hoffman says the man was arrested on misdemeanor criminal mischief charges and accompanied to a medical tent due to his intoxication levels.
The streaking came the same day as police reported at least two dozen phones had been stolen at the music festival.
Firefly was headlined by Panic! At The Disco, Post Malone, and Travis Scott, with support from Zedd, Kygo, DJ Snake, Passion Pit, Death Cab For Cutie, and more.
