Discover Newport Folk Festival

Congrats to our Newport VIP Winner Josh, who tunes in to WERS all the was from Toledo, Ohio! Thank you to everyone who tuned in and entered. 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
Dawes
Apache Relay
Tom Morello
tUnE-yArDs
Trampled By Turtles
Gary Clark Jr.
The Head and The Heart
Conor Oberst
Punch Brothers
Of Monsters and Men

And Folk Friday Featuring Wilco and Blitzen Trapper!

Friday July 27th there’ll be an exclusive show featuring Wilco, Blitzen Trapper, and Megafaun at the Newport Folk Festival

Saturday and Sunday are SOLD OUT but Tickets for Friday night are still available at the Newport Folk Festival Website!

And make sure to stick with WERS and WERS.org for full live coverage all weekend long!
