Newport Folk Festival weekend tickets sold out

Posted: Updated:
NEWPORT, R.I. -

This summer's Newport Folk Festival has sold out five months in advance.

It's the first time in the event's 54-year-history that tickets for the Saturday and Sunday concerts have sold out so early. Tickets remain available for a Friday night kick-off concert.

Last year tickets to the main two days of the festival sold out three months early.

Ten thousand people are expected to attend the July 27 and 28 concerts at Fort Adams State Park. The lineup for the festival typically features dozens of artists from a range of musical styles. This year's complete line-up has yet to be released.

The festival has boasted a who's-who of musical stars since it was first held in 1959. It's known as the place where Bob Dylan went electric in 1965.
