Newport Folk Festival announced today that Remi Wolf will be joining their lineup this summer. As is Newport Folk tradition, the festival has been rolling out the lineup over the last several weeks.
Wolf, an American singer and songwriter from California, will perform on Sunday, July 30.
For her Artist Give, she asked Newport Festivals Foundation to provide a grant to In The Band, which provides access to music education in underserved communities throughout Los Angeles county. The funds will be used to support a songwriting and production program in partnership with a nonprofit shelter in Hollywood, CA that provides sanctuary and support for youth overcoming homelessness and trafficking.
The sold-out 2023 Newport Folk Festival will take place at Fort Adams State Park in Newport from Friday, July 28 through Sunday, July 30.
