What A Week Of Incredible Announcements By The Newport Folk Festival

They’re probably not even a quarter of the way into the lineup announcements, but even if they were done, the Newport Folk Festival lineup so far is enough to keep me happy for years!

The announcements made over the past week are:

CAAMP – this is another band I am looking forward to hearing for the first time.

Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit – wowee!!! One of the best bands around today, I am thrilled they are returning to NFF! I traveled to Nashville just to see them last December in an intimate show, that’s how good they are. Jason is also one of the best songwriters writing music today.

Nicole Atkins – Possessed with a fabulous voice, she is a great addition to the lineup. I saw her perform a few songs last year at one of the NFF after-shows and loved her.

Twain – I know the name of this band but not their music so another introduction is in the works for me.

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

At this point, the Festival is sold out; the right way to try to purchase a ticket is through their fan-to-fan ticket exchange. Get yourself on the waiting list – I know a lot of people who were able to purchase tickets last year through this site. This is an amazing festival – even going for one day is worth it. Get on the list now!!!

Friday:  Fantastic Negrito, Sturgill Simpson, Rachael & Vilray, Darlingside, Tyler Childers, JD McPherson, Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit

Saturday:  Courtney Barnett, Tank and the Bangas, Colter Wall, Bedouine, Hamilton Leithauser + Rostam, Phoebe Bridgers, CAAMP

Sunday: The Weather Station, The War and Treaty, Gary Clark Jr., Passenger, The Lone Bellow, Charlie Parr, Nicole Atkins, Twain

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!
