Newport Folk Festival to air on NPR Music
NPR Music will hit the road again this year and head north to Newport, R.I. with a live broadcast and webcast from the Newport Folk Festival, July 27-29. The coverage begins with a live webcast of Wilco on Friday July 27th. It'll also include opening sets from Megafaun and Blitzen.
In addition to Wilco, you'll be able to watch live video performances by The Head and the Heart, Iron And Wine, Alabama Shakes and more from the folk festival online and via the NPR mobile apps. Listen live all weekend on WFUV, Folk Alley and MVYRadio. You can see the full lineup of artists on the main Newport page. NPR Music will post a broadcast schedule with specific set times a bit closer to the festival itself.
KIOS will not be broadcasting the festival, but here are the links for you to enjoy the music.
