For those Folk lovers among us, the Newport Folk Festival is one of the year’s most exciting events. Each year, festival organizers pull some of the biggest names in folk out there—from Roger Waters and Tallest Man on Earth to Langhorne Slim and Shakey Graves. Those who can get their hands on one of the few coveted tickets experience one of the best weekends available in the music world.
Unfortunately, these tickets sell out faster than most. This year, tickets sold out within days—before, even, the lineup was announced. We will be sure to update our readers with the lineup as soon as it is posted (any day now, we hope), but in the meantime: if you have a ticket, consider yourself one of the luckiest people in the folk world.
Look for future updates on the festival website.
