If you are attending the festival please stop by our tent to say hello. We will be bringing you in-depth coverage from the Newport Folk Festival all weekend long!

George Wein couldn’t have imagined that Newport would not only exist over 50 years after its initial run in 1959 but would continue to be the epicenter of the newest and best folk, Americana, country, bluegrass, and indie artists on the road today. Many WERS artists will be performing including:

My Morning Jacket
Alabama Shakes
Iron and Wine
Apache Relay
Tom Morello
Trampled By Turtles
Gary Clark Jr.
The Head and The Heart
Conor Oberst
