Roger Waters will make his first-ever Newport Folk Festival appearance when he headlines the long-running fest on July 24th. The former Pink Floyd bassist will craft a "very special" set list especially curated for the Rhode Island fest, a festival rep tells Rolling Stone. July 25th will also mark the 50th anniversary of Bob Dylan "going electric" with a controversial and legendary set at the 1965 Newport Folk Festival. Jason Isbell, Brandi Carlile, Jose Gonzalez, Sturgill Simpson and Replacements bassist Tommy Stinson are among the musicians who will perform at the fest that day. http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/roger-waters-to-headline-newport-folk-festival-20150521 http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by Wochit using http://wochit.com
