Newport Folk Festival Announces Bob Dylan All-Star Tribute

This year’s annual Newport Folk Festival will take place July 24 -26 in Newport, Rhode Island and will feature special all-star tribute set in honor of Bob Dylan. Dubbed ‘65 Revisited, the as-of-yet unnamed lineup will recognize and celebrate Dylan’s “going electric” 50 years ago at the 1965 Newport Folk Festival. 

The lineup will remain secret until the final day of the three-day event, with the ‘65 Revisited tribute closing out Sunday night’s performances. Other headliners include Rogers Waters and The Decemberists. Dylan, who has an open invitation to play each year at Newport (and did in 2002), is not expected to appear.
