Newport, RI – Newport Folk Festival‘s lineup announcement is easily the most awaited of any festival in Rhode Island, Southern New England, and possibly beyond.
Rumors about who might be playing based on artists’ tour dates, Newport Folk presents shows, and who’s got a new album coming out, start to fly earlier and earlier each year.
While the annual festival sold-out within just a few short hours on November 29th, this year’s announcements are coming much earlier than their usual late winter arrival – with the first announcement on the same day tickets went on sale.
