PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Ninety-thousand invaded Dover, Delaware, this weekend for the sixth edition of Firefly Music Festival. While a majority of the action took place on stage, buried back between the trees was a whole other event. Golf carts shuttled staff with supplies from festival end to end, bands exchanged cheers and conversation in the village known as the “artist compound,” and a network of press gathered in a tent on the outskirts to talk to performers in-between sets.
Serenaded and sunburned, The Woodlands were filled with fans this weekend for the sixth edition of the Firefly Music Festival. Over four days, attendees enjoyed what was billed as the “first ever fan-curated festival”. The bands, the food, and even the merchandise was put to a vote online. The result was an eclectic mix of pop, rock, and hip hop – chicken, sausage, and noodles.
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — And we’re off. Today begins the 2017 edition of the Firefly Music Festival in Dover, DE. The lights seem brighter than ever before for Firefly. Heavy on headliners, the fifth edition boasts performances from Twenty One Pilots, The Weeknd, Muse, Chance The Rapper, and Bob Dylan. That’s a genre giant for any fan. As the font gets smaller on the event poster, Philadelphia gets louder and well represented.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
