Newport Folk Festival

We're Going To Newport!


The Newport Folk and Newport Jazz festivals are rapidly approaching, and NPR Music will be at both again this year, broadcasting and webcasting full concerts throughout each event. The folk festival will be July 30 and 31, while the jazz festival takes place August 5, 6 and 7.

For the first time, NPR Music will also have live video online from Newport Folk's main stage, featuring full concerts by artists such as Emmylou Harris, The Decemberists and Gogol Bordello. WFUV and Folk Alley will join us for the broadcast and webcast.

You can see the full lineup of artists at our main Newport pages for folk and jazz. We'll post a schedule with specific set times a bit later.
