Dates: 28-29 July 2012
Website: newportfolkfest.net
Genre:Folk
Main Acts:My Morning Jacket, Jackson Browne, Conor Oberst, Patty Griffin, Punch Brothers
Description:Famous for when Bob Dylan decided to go electric. Went down like a lead balloon.
Now it carries on a tradition of prominently displaying the best concurrent examples of popular and indy folk music. Already past its 50th anniversary, essential and fresh voices alike have graced the stage.
Very mellow atmosphere but worth having a look. This is a proper veteran on the festival circuit.
Camping is a long haul from the park, so be prepared to grab public transport.
