Beck, The Avett Brothers, Feist To Headline Newport Folk Festival

Newport Folk Festival 2013 lineup Beck Avett Brothers LumineersOver the past few years, the Newport Folk Festival has gotten bigger, if not so big as to rival larger festivals like Bonnaroo and Coachella. However, the organizers of the festivals have always taken the “folk” aspect of the festival seriously, and this year is no different. The full lineup for Newport Folk Festival, announced today on their website, has some of the biggest names in folk, roots and rock.

Everyone’s favorite genre-hopping weirdo Beck will headline the festival alongside folk lifers The Avett Brothers and Canadian singer/songwriter Feist. Elmore favorites Jim James, The Mountain Goats, and Jason Isbell will also be playing the festival, as will new folk-pop darlings The Lumineers.

Newport Folk Festival takes place July 26th-28th at Fort Adams State Park in Newport, Rhode Island. You can purchase tickets and see the full lineup of the festival here.
