Newport Folk Festival tickets 2010 will likely be as hard to find as they were back in 1965 when Bob Dylan took the folk world by storm with his controversial decision to play a half-electric set that paved the way for the folk music of successive generations. The 2010 Newport Folk Festival will be just as raw and unpredictable, as the times they are a changin’, with much new blood coming up and plenty of old masters sticking around to ply the trade the way it was always meant to be. Your Newport Festival tickets will put you right before the biggest names in the world at the most famous folk festival in the world – and you can’t ask for more than that!
The Newport Festival has one of the most picturesque settings of any music festival in the world. If you’ve seen footage of Newport you’ll remember the gorgeous natural backdrop of Fort Adams State Park at the cusp of July and August – the best time of year to be in Newport. With the deep turquoise Atlantic spangling in all its midsummer glory, you’ll chill out with a cold drink and good people and – most importantly – the best folk music in the world.
Check out our Newport Festival schedule and feast your eyes on the planned events. Last year saw artists like Ramblin’ Jack Elliot and Billy Bragg create some of the best live folk music we’ve seen in a long time, and the 2010 Newport Festival is primed to be even better. Newport isn’t just the place Dylan goes electric, it’s a festival that took itself on the road, too. The Newport Folk Festival Tour has taken artists like folk vetaran Joan Baez, Lyle Lovett, Alison Krauss, Wilco, Suzanne Vega and Lucinda Williams on tour, and has been a resounding success. Make sure you buy your Newport Folk Festival tickets and are there for history being made in a beautiful New England coastal setting!
