About the festival

WERS will be bringing you in-depth coverage, on-air giveaways, and on-site love LIVE from the Newport Folk Festival again this year! 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
