Artists for both festivals will be announced in early April. The tradition of excellent music festivals in Newport is sure to be upheld with legendary producer Wein at the helm. Both he and Newport are well known for presenting a bevy of excellent performers. So, I'm sure we're in for a stellar line-up at both festivals.
