The Avett Brothers, Feist, Old Crow Medicine Show, Justin Townes Earle, Amanda Palmer, Sarah Jarosz, Phosphorescent, Milk Carton Kids and more have been added to the lineup for the Newport Folk Festival. As previously reported, they will join Jim James, The Lumineers, Father John Misty, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, Andrew Bird, Spirit Family Reunion, The Mountain Goats and Lord Huron, among others.
This year marks the 55th anniversary of the storied festival, and people seem to be excited. Three-day, two-day, and individual Saturday and Sunday tickets to the event sold out many weeks ago, before any substantial lineup had been announced. This year’s event is also the first time that the festival has expanded to three-days, and single-day tickets for Friday are still available for $49.
