Hear Ye, Hear Ye: Newport Folk Fest Tickets On Sale This Week
Want to go to this year's festival? Better get your tickets early.
BY CASEY NILSSON
Early bird tickets to the 2014 Newport Folk Fest sold out in minutes. Minutes! And to think George Wein, grand master of folk, almost sold the biz in 2008.
This year's dates are July 24, 25 and 26. No, we don't know who's playing the Fort. But does it matter? Last year was awesome; here's a little reminder: (see link above to RI Monthly for the video)
Don't be one of the suckers whining on the festival's Facebook page at 10:30 a.m., and get your tickets the minute they go live. The date is this Thursday, January 8, at 10 a.m. sharp. We suggest you start hovering on Ticketmaster around 9:55, and refresh like a madman. Limit is four tickets per purchase.
