NEWPORT, RI – Day 1 of the 2017 Newport Folk Festival is in the books.

The first day of the annual three-day event was hot, both on and off the stage. From L.A. Salami’s passionate performance on the Harbor Stage to Fleet Foxes entertaining the crowd to end the day, there was plenty to be heard and seen. Here we try to share what day 1 looked and felt like, enjoy!
