Relix Roadie Lounge at Newport Folk Festival

The crew is the foundation for every festival, tour, and show. They load into the venue sometimes weeks before to make sure everything is ready for show time. That’s why this year, for the first time at Newport Folk Festival, we are hosting the Relix Roadie Lounge.

We want to give back to the hardworking people essential to making each show happen. With the help of our partners, Meyer Sound and Fender, the Relix Roadie Lounge welcomes artists, stagehands, lighting operators, tour managers, instrument techs, and everyone else deemed a "Roadie”. Providing a much-needed recharge to help you power through this year’s festival.

Come join us in the Newport Folk Festival Artist Casemate to demo the new Fender American Acoustasonic Telecaster, check out the latest sound equipment from Meyer Sound, and much more. Proper Newport Folk Festival credentials are required for access.
