Tickets to the 2016 Newport Folk Festival went on sale at 10am on December 2nd and within just a few hours 3-Day Tickets, 2-Day Tickets, and Saturday Single Day Tickets sold out. All that remained was Friday tickets, all before knowing a single artist, musician or band that would perform at the 2016 event. The festival completely sold out 153 days before the event and after only naming 11 of the dozens of artists that were still to be announced.
