slides: 2018 Newport Folk Festival - Friday Highlights

Saturday, July 28, 2018

 

Friday launched another momentous weekend of music at the 2018 Newport Folk Festival at Fort Adams State Park. Beautiful weather blanketed the historic fort, as thousands of devoted music fans trekked from all over the country, and even internationally, for a fantastic weekend of great music.

In what has become an annual occurrence, the day brought another sellout crowd of 10,000 devoted festival fans. Once again, festival mastermind Jay Sweet brought an outstanding lineup of gifted artists to the five stages, delivering nearly ten hours of magical performances.

Highlights of the day included Margo Price, Lucious, Ben Harper & Charlie Musselwhite, Sturgill Simpson, The Wood Brothers, St. Vincent, and Jason Isbell.
