Newport Folk Festival 2013: Andrew Bird, Jim James, Lumineers and Father John Misty

The Newport Folk Festival is rolling out their 2013 lineup slowly but surely highlighting each artist with an awesome introduction. The event will also expand to three days this year. So far the July 26th-28th event in Fort Adams State Park (Rhode Island) features Andrew Bird, Jim James, Father John Misty, The Felice Brothers, Bombino, Nicki Bluhm & The Gramblers, Langhorne Slim, Michael Kiwanuka and many more. Admission is $145 but good luck finding a ticket (only single day Fridays remain.) The annual event is one of the hardest tickets of the festival season. Check out the list of artists already announced with more promised in the coming weeks.
