Photo Gallery: Newport Folk Festival 2018

Editor’s Note: The magic of Newport Folk Festival returned this past weekend (July 27 to 29), and you could feel it whether you were deep within Fort Adams State Park or watching it unfold through your screens on social media. Vanyaland’s Matthew Shelter was in the mix down in Newport all weekend long, and his gallery below runs generally in the artists’ and bands’ order of appearance over Newport Folk’s three days. “Highlights of the fest included sets by Margo Price, Lucius, Jason Isbell, Low Cut Connie, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, The Lone Bellow, and Brandi Carlisle,” Shelter reports back this morning. Other standout moments included “an unannounced set by Mumford and Sons to headline Saturday evening, [as well as] a closing jam Sunday night led by Jon Batiste and Mavis Staples, and featuring guest appearances by Leon Bridges, Maggie Rogers, Kam Franklin, Brittany Howard, Chris Thile, Rachael Price and others.” Only in Newport, only at Newport.
