Hot SpotNarragansett Bay, Newport, RI

Deets: Newport Folk is an American music tradition at this point, but it's hardly just for the family-friendly/Dylan-crooning set. Over the course of three days, musicians that redefine "folk" in every fashion from the soulful belts of Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings to the hard-rocking ways of Jack White descend upon Fort Adams and let their music waft across the sail boat-speckled Narragansett Bay. It's scenic, it's chill and it's a great excuse to eat lobster rolls for an entire weekend while rediscovering an appreciation for banjos.

Who You May Spot: Haunt the House, Sturgill Simpson, Courtney Barnett, Madisen Ward & the Mama Bear, J Mascis, Field Report For updates on musical lineup
