The past month of lineup announcements by the Newport Folk Festival has been nothing short of fabulous! Of course this is what I have come to expect but that does not lessen the impact of the addition of some favorite artists as well as ones I have never seen but want to see! It seems like we are nearing the end of the lineup announcements, but I believe there are still a few more to come. Stay tuned!
I’m a relative newcomer to the Newport Folk Festival. The first year I attended was 2012 and I think it will be a part of my life for years to come.
Last year (I believe), NFF decided to do rolling announcements of the lineup rather than announcing the entire lineup at the same time. It’s part frustrating (because I want to know NOW) but mostly exciting (who’s going to be announced NEXT).
