About Newport Folk Festival

The Newport Folk Festival is one of the oldest and most beloved music festivals of the year. Make sure to get your cheap Newport Folk Festival tickets before they all sell out! The Newport Folk Festival is a celebration of American folk music, drawing musicians from genres like blues, folk, country, bluegrass, folk rock, and more. The Newport Folk Festival was founded in 1959 as a companion to the Newport Jazz Festival. Early performers for the Newport Folk Festival included John Cash, Bob Dylan, and Muddy Waters, to name a few (though Bob Dylan was booed at the 1965 festival for using electric guitars). The festival closed for some years but was revived in 1985 and has been growing in popularity since. The Newport Folk Festival celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2009, and modern Newport Folk Festivals have seen performers like The Decemberrists, The Avett Brothers, My morning Jacket, and others. The Newport Folk Festival is a testament to the longevity of American folk music and a great place to experience the feeling of community and acceptance music lost with the end of the peace and love movement. Don't wait to get your cheap Newport Folk Festival tickets — it's definitely going to be a festival to remember!
