Top 10 Highlights of the 2014 Newport Folk Festival

Submitted by Matthew Shelter on Mon, 08/04/2014 - 11:44 am

The Newport Folk Festival may not be a monster fest on the order of a Bonnaroo or a Coachella, but it has rejuvenated itself over the last half dozen years into a premier summer stop for a broad range of alternative, indie, country-rock and folk acts.

Day 1 of the Outside Lands seemed a little small for a festival, but that may have been because there were so many stages with up to five bands performing at once, sometimes in different areas of Golden Gate Park. Then again when Pearl Jam began it’s final set of the night.
