Yes. That's right, the Newport Folk Festival, which takes place in Fort Adams State Park, will put their tickets on sale in about an hour. So, at 10:00 am ET, you'll be able to purchase tics to this two-day music extravaganza.
Now. Before you all flip out and ask 'yeah, but who's gonna be there this year?', let's remind you that this is the same festival that had Neko Case a couple years back, Middle Brother last year, Calexico in recent memory. So then, who's gonna be there this year? We dunno...
'K, we do. The press release is right in front of us. A lotta people, actually, but we don't feel like detailing every Conor Oberst or Iron & Wine who might show. In fact, we're going to make a point not to mention Dawes, or the Head and the Heart, not even Jackson Browne, who, if he were to make an appearance at the NFF this year (which takes place July 28-29), would make this his first appearance. But we're not gonna tell.
So! Check out the site in about an hour - www.newportfolkfest.net - and keep in mind, the tickets last year SOLD OUT. OUCH, that's gotta hurt. So if you think you might possibly enjoy any of the aforementioned acts (though we're not gonna not-mention them again) your clock has started. My Morning Jacket. Enjoy!
