Tickets for the Newport Folk Festival go on sale Wednesday, about six months before the event. As usual, no artists have yet been announced for the 2017 festival. In previous years, a limited number of early-bird tickets were sold first. This year, all tickets will be released at the same time, (though the first ten percent sold will be discounted.)
Organizers expect tickets to go quickly, as the event has sold out in recent years. The Folk Festival is limited to about 10,000 people per day, making it smaller than many other high-profile music festivals.
