Newport Folk Festival was founded by George Wein in 1959 and since then, folk has truly made itself a staple to the musical diet of Rhode Island. Joan Baez, Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash and Howlin' Wolf were among some of the earliest acts to make it to the festival, and many more found themselves 'discovered' there. As well as camping facilities, the festival also offers information on nearby accomodation in the charming nearby town.
