We’re excited to announce that Invisible Children will be a part of this year’s Newport Folk Festival at the end of July – for the FIRST time!
NFF isn’t just a legendary summer music festival that’s been running since 1959… it has given a platform to some of the most notable American songwriters the world has ever known. It’s the place where Bob Dylan got his start. Johnny Cash has graced her stage, as well as Muddy Waters, and so many more in recent years.

This year’s lineup includes some of our closest friends. Friends that we’ve traveled across the United States with and thrown events alongside – bands like Deer Tick and Dawes and Spirit Family Reunion. Check out the full lineup annd if you’re interested, they’ve just announced their first ever PRE-festival showcases called “The Road To Newport Folk” with The Head & The Heart in Boston.
