George Wein’s Folk Festival 50 Lineup

While most music festivals would be excited to rock for five years, the Newport Folk Festival is celebrating their fiftieth anniversary during August 1-2. This eclectic party in Rhode Island’s Fort Adams State Park includes performances from Pete Seeger and Joan Baez along with The Decemberists, Iron & Wine, and Fleet Foxes.

Tickets are still available for $69 in advance and $75 at the gate. Check out the full lineup in our Folk Festival 50 Guide.

We are Music Festival Wizard -- a loose coalition of writers, photographers, artists, and musicians roadtripping around the world in search of the "perfect" music festival.
