So we won our category for BEST AMERICAN MUSIC FESTIVAL last night while I was on a plane coming back from fundraising for our foundation. Of course I’m so proud of our team our fans and our artists… but a special shoutout goes to Laura from @lagunitasbeer who did her best Price is Right “come on down!” impression to accept on our behalf. What she said meant a lot but it also exemplifies how even our beer partner gets what it means to be #folkfamily #trust
The other nominees were: The Hangout Beach, Music & Arts Festival | Gulf Shores, AL – Desert Daze | Lake Perris, CA – Forecastle | Louisville, KY – Moon River | Chattanooga, TN and The Ohana Fest | Dana Point, CA.
The sold-out 2019 Newport Folk Festival will take place from July 26th – 28th at Fort Adams State Park.
