The three-day festival held true to all the stories I've heard of it, and then some. An absolutely amazing lineup of music, a beautiful setting, and one of the most friendly and lovely crowds possible. Most interesting to me was the organic way in which the organization honors its past, preserves its history, all while not being afraid to move forward and greet change. It was a treat for us to be in a new spot, meet so many new people and introduce folks to Taproot Magazine. Thank you, Newport! We are already looking forward to 2016! ~amanda (and Steve)
