We’re all waking up to a cold, snowy winter morning here in Massachusetts, so here’s some necessary sunshine courtesy of Newport Folk Festival. The annual mid-summer Rhode Island get-together, now in its 57th year, has been slowly rolling out its 2016 lineup, and first impressions are making us warm and fuzzy.
The lineup is being unveiled artist-by-artist via the Newport Folk twitter.
The slate is already proving rewarding for those who bought tickets in advance — the ’16 edition of Newport Folk is just about all sold out, with a limited number of Friday night tickets still available. Those who didn’t get in on the early on-sales are in luck, however, as Newport Folk recent unveiled a fan-to-fan ticket exchange system that aims to cut out scalping.
Check out the first batch of lineup announcements via the slider.
