The Revue will be at Newport Folk Festival this weekend, bringing you frequent updates to this site and our social media channels (Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter). Words and photos are great, but we know music fans like you prefer to actually hear the tunes, right? That’s why we’re sharing this sampler of the 60+ artists whose talents will grace the legendary stages at the place where Bob Dylan first went electric in 1965.

The playlist is sorted chronologically by day; each artist or band’s name links to their website or Facebook page. Stay tuned during (and after) the festival when we share artist interviews, intimate artist portraits, and scores of photos. Hopefully we will see you at Fort Adams for Newport Folk Festival 2017!
