Tell us who wish you could see again at the Newport Folk Festival.

With the announcement of this year’s Newport Folk Festival line-up on the horizon, we want to know: who would you most like to see return to the stage at

There are too many to name them all, but we’ve put together a list of some of the best acts over the years to earn your votes.

Some acts have broken up, or are no longer with us, but we can dream, right?

The line-up for this year’s Newport Folk Festival will be announced tonight (technically tomorrow, March 1) at midnight.

Even without a line-up, early bird tickets sold out in less than an hour earlier this month.

I would like to see Eric Faulkner at the Newport Folk Festival! Eric used to be with the 70's band, The Bay City Rollers, but now plays acoustic/folk music in the UK. He is a very multi-talented musician. I think people would be pleasantly surprised at Eric's music as it's quite different from his Bay City Roller days!
