Robert Hunter to Join Newport Folk Festival Lineup

Robert Hunter will join the Newport Folk Festival lineup, set for July 25-27 at Fort Adams in Newport, RI. Hunter joins a lineup that boasts the likes of Band of Horses, Nickel Creek, Mavis Staples, Jenny Lewis, Shovels & Rope and many more. Hunter will perform on the first day of the festival, July 25.

Tickets to the festival are still available, however just Friday and Sunday individual passes remain. All ticketing and additional lineup info is available here.

The Grateful Dead lyricist broke his decade-long performance hiatus last fall when he returned to the road following a health scare that almost took his life. Hunter recently sat down with Relix to discuss his health issues as well as returning to the road, which you can read over on

I enjoy any music coming from any of the members of the Grateful Dead my first show was in 1984.I have since taken both my daughters to Grateful Dead shows they got to see Jerry while he was present and his presence is still felt at the shows.Keep the music playing.I enjoy all the works for charities that you have all done.
