Festival Fashion 101: Pics From Newport Folk Fest

Remember when music festivals were about seeing live music with your friends, and not about street style, pool parties, or Twitter hashtags? If you thought that the last music festival died with the introduction of Instagram, think again — the Newport Folk Festival has been going on since 1959 and still boasts the same quality, no-frills event that hosted Bob Dylan's first national live show in '63.
It's been called "the music festival for musicians" (by fellow musicians, naturally), and we braved some really nasty weather this weekend to trek out to Rhode Island to catch the acts, see the sights, and snap some shots of our favorite music festival this side of a PlayStation sponsorship.
