OtterTour at Newport Folk Festival

Read Article



The OtterTour is making its way up to Newport Harbor for the world-famous Newport Folk Festival!


Since its inception in 1959, the festival has been laying the groundwork for the modern day music festival. Always pushing the boundaries and foregoing tradition, Newport has been, and continues to be, the ultimate haven for singer-songwriters.  Joan Baez, Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash are just a few of the major stars who graced the Newport stage.


The waterfront venue is situated on the mouth of Newport Harbor, with views of the Newport Bridge and East Passage. It also features four stages with headliners including Roger Waters, The Decemberists, Hozier, Sufjan Stevens and more.


Join us as we bust out the lawn chairs and blankets and sway to the sweet jams of our favorite singer-songwriters. Follow us on Twitter @OtterBox and the hashtags #OtterTour and #NewportFolkFest for live event updates and your chance to win prizes!
