Get to the merch tent early. We had the honor to work with two amazing artists on this year’s posters –  Rhode Island’s very own Will Schaff and Grammy Award winning designer Gary Burden.

My favorite memories of Newport are the unexpected, unplanned moments, [like] when someone invited me to join them onstage, in the street or on a boat in the harbor or in the yard of some fucked up mansion early in the morning, or ringing church bells and wrestling wild boar in the chapel late at night, duets with the late great Whitney Houston, night swimming, howling in the streets, singing in the fort. It’s another world.

PROVIDENCE, R.I. — The band Deer Tick, which got its start in Rhode Island, had to find another way to get home for the Newport Folk Festival when U.S. Airways refused to let a member on board with his guitar, the band tweeted Wednesday:
"Just got kicked off a @USAirways flight cuz they wouldn’t let me bring my guitar on board. @Newportfolkfest here I come!!… via @Amtrak"
@Newportfolkfest replied: “They messed with the wrong Folking band.”
Another user posted a link to an article on Redditthat said it’s legal to bring guitars on flights. @deertickmusic answered: “i showed them that. I was told US Airways doesn’t follow FAA rules (???)”
