The Newport Folk Festival strongly advises against purchasing tickets from secondary markets, individuals, or corporate resellers claiming to have tickets before the official public sale. Speculative listings are not authentic tickets owned by the seller. Official Newport Folk sources, during the official on-sale or waitlist, are the only recommended channels for ticket purchase. All Newport Folk tickets are mobile and provided by their ticketing partner, DICE.
