Newport Folk Festival has begun to announce pieces of their MASSIVE 2020 music festival lineup returning to Ft. Adams in Newport, Rhode Island. Big Thief and Black Pumas are the first two artists to be officially confirmed, and the weekend of July 31 through August 2 will bring the best artists in Americana, Folk, Jazz, Funk and much more to the legendary festival. We expect these are just the tip of the iceberg on who we’ll eventually see at the top of the bill.

Big Thief got the nod at the first artist confirmed.

Today the Black Pumas were confirmed to join the festival.

We’ll be following along as the news drops on who else will be there with them.
