Summer Festival Updates

Both the Newport Folk Festival and 4Knots Festival have announced some additions.

Summer Festival Updates

In this article…

As we inch closer to summer festival season every day and every degree on the thermometer, festivals continue to tinker with their lineups. Here are two that have made some changes recently.

4Knots Music Festival

The free single-day festival that is curated by The Village Voice keeps adding to its punk-influenced roster. The initial lineup of Parquet Courts, Kurt Vile & the Violators, The Men and Marnie Stern is now bolstered by five more bands. Those acts are: White Lung, Reigning Sound, Babies, Fat Tony and Heliotropes. All nine groups will ensure that June 29 will be one high-octane day of music at South Street Seaport.

Newport Folk Festival

In addition to filtering their lineup by day, Newport Folk Festival announced the official evening festivities that will take place all weekend long. Dawes, a performer in the festival last year, will be performing on Friday the 26th and Saturday the 27th (of July) at The Jane Pickens Theater with friends (probably festival artists). I had thought they would be included in the actual lineup, but it's great that they will still be involved in some capacity.

Folk Festival legends Deer Tick are no strangers to throwing down when they aren't on stage. John McCauley makes frequent cameos during several sets over the course of the weekend, and every night the band will be playing at the Newport Blues Cafe. Any one of those shows will be a can't-miss event, because the Newport Folk Fest isn't truly experienced without some John McCauley.

All of the proceeds for the individual events will go to the Newport Festivals Foundation and the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation, and details/prices will be available within the coming weeks.
