We never miss a Newport Folk Festival. Every year there are favorites and surprises, and the unbelievably beautiful setting puts everyone in the best frame of mind.

That means some of the most memorable live performances ever have come out of Newport, and thanks to our teammates at FUV Music, you can hear them on demand.

Live sets from Wilco, Alabama Shakes, Dawes, Sara Watkins, Charles Bradley and many more are waiting for you on the NPR Music Newport Folk Festival page.

Photos of the best moments are below. Get day-by-day descriptions and more from Team FUV here. Thanks to all our friends who came by the WFUV booth to say hello, we'll see you again next year!
