Folk Festival Sells Out Weekend Tickets

Tickets for the Friday Wilco show are still available.

Tickets for Saturday and Sunday of the Newport Folk Festival have officially been sold out, the festival’s Facebook page announced this Wednesday.

Saturday, Sunday and weekend passes are no longer available, but tickets for the newly added Wilco show on Friday are still available. Get tickets here.

The tickets sold out less than a month and a half from when they went on sale on March 1.

According to reports on last year’s festival, tickets did not sell out until about two weeks before the July 30-31 show. It was also the first sold-out year.

Have you gotten your tickets yet?

This is just a travesty! What has happened to the Newport Folk Festival? There are hundreds of tickets online now for $800-$1000 each! The original price was $144. I am just devastated and can't believe how these scamming online ticket dealers try to make so much $$ from real folk fans. Who can afford that price? I just want to see Patty!!!

I remember when the festival's future was in danger due to lack of sales, so happy about its resurgence. Also glad we got out tickets early. We have been going for over 20 tears. Last year was terrific...love the new alternate stages. Do we know how many of the tickets were snapped up by ticket agents/scalpers?
