Don’t have anything to do July 28th or 29th? What better way to spend those two days than listening to My Morning Jacket, Conor Oberst, Iron & Wine, and more incredible bands at the Newport Folk Festival?
The annual show, which claims introducing such music icons as Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, and Kris Kristofferson, and is famous for the 1965 Dylan electric controversy, has recently announced its 2012 lineup. Headlining are My Morning Jacket and Jackson Browne- accompanied by tUnE-YarDs, Tom Morello, Blind Pilot, The Tallest Man on Earth, and Providence’s own Deer Tick, among many others.

The festival takes place in Fort Adams State Park in Newport July 28-29. Tickets are on sale now!
