Newport Folk Festival 2018 was like any other in recent years: magical, memorable, and unmatched. The venerable event brought in the best in Americana (Brandi Carlile, Shakey Graves, The Lone Bellow), country (Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit, Sturgill Simpson, Margo Price), and even indie (St. Vincent, Hamilton Leithauser & Rostam, Courtney Barnett) for another weekend of incredible music. It’s hard to really encapsulate such an experience, but News Editor Ben Kaye was on site as always to do his best with his words and camera. Relive it all and peek at what you missed by checking out the extensive photo gallery below.
