The Newport Folk Festival Line-Up Added Some Great Acts

This week started with a fabulous announcement!  The Newport Folk Festival continues its lineup announcements and added even more interesting acts.

The announcements made over the past week are:

The Decemberists – I recently saw them for the first time and loved the show! This might be the first headliner to be announced…

Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats – This is another band about which I’ve heard good things. I love the name of the band!!!

Angel Olsen – I had not heard of her prior to this announcement – she’s an indie folk-rocker from what I can tell.

I continue to be thrilled that I have a three-day ticket.

I plan to post the announcements weekly until NFF has completed the entire lineup. At that point, I might offer my opinions on the acts, once I know who is performing which day.

At this point, the only remaining type of ticket is the Friday single-day ticket. This is an amazing festival – even going for one day is worth it. Get your tickets now!!!

Friday: Haunt the House, Leon Bridges, The Lone Bellow, Bahamas, Heartless Bastards, Calexico, Iron & Wine and Sam Bridwell, Joe Pug, Watkins Family Hour, Angel Olsen

Saturday:  Courtney Barnett, Sturgill Simpson, Madisen Ward and The Mama Bear, Langhorne Slim & The Law, Brandi Carlile, The Suffers, Traveller, Nikki Lane, José González, The Decemberists

Sunday: Field Report, J Mascis, First Aid Kit, The Jones Family Singers, Laura Marling, Blake Mills, Shakey Graves, Lord Huron, Christopher Paul Stelling, Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats

About suze72

I've loved the arts all my life... I go to a lot of concerts, take lots of photos and want to share them. Every once in a while I do something other than a concert, too. The Boston area is full of opportunities to indulge my passion - I'd like to help make it yours too!
