Monthly Mixtape: Newport Folk Festival

Wednesday, May 09, 2012

 If there's one thing I LOVE about the summer, it's definitely music festivals.  From Woodstock to Farmaid to Bonnaroo to Coachella and everywhere in between, there is something magical about different artists with different backgrounds and styles coming together to make musical awesomeness.  I've been lucky to be able to visit quite a few of these festivals in my life but I'm not sure if I've ever been more excited for one as I am for this summer and Newport Folk Festival 2012.  If you haven't heard of it, Newport is basically the mecca of folk music, going back to 1959 and spanning musical history with moments like first performances from Bob Dylan, Kris Kristofferson, legendary performances from Howlin' Wolf, Johnny Cash and SO many more!  This year's lineup is KILLER, there literally isn't a band that I'm not totally pumped to see!


I've always had a tradition of creating a playlist before a festival or concert of all of my favorite artists that are playing to really get in the spirit, so I wanted to share it with you all! I've still got a couple of months, (it's that last weekend in July,) so this gives me plenty of times to get in the mood to jam :)  I'll also be sharing a couple of festival themed posts about festival fashion, do's and don't, and more for you all throughout the next couple of months, so keep an eye out for them! And if you're planning on attending the festival as well, give me a shout, maybe we can meet up!!
