We're looking forward to the day we can all enjoy a live concert together again, but in the meantime WFUV has your concert blues cure. We are thrilled to partner with the Newport Folk Festival from Friday, July 31 through Sunday, August 2. Tune in (either on the radio or streaming online) for a weekend of live sets and historic moments on Newport Folk Revival Radio Weekend.

You'll hear three days of storied performances from across 60 years of the festival's history. Friday's line-up includes Roger Waters and Dolly Parton with The Highwomen. Saturday has Wilco and the beloved John Prine, and on Sunday, it's Beck and a memorable concert from Sharon Jones and The Dap-Kings. We were there for a lot of these sets, and pulled together our favorite photos to flip through while you listen.

Listen on 90.7 FM or online, and stroll down FUV's own memory lane to see our past coverage plus photos of some of our favorite performances. Full lineup and set times below:
