Fleet Foxes have announced their first show in the U.S. since 2011. They will perform at Newport Folk Festival in July, which runs from the 28th to the 30th at Fort Adams State Park in Rhode Island. They will headline on the first day. The concert follows their appearances at Vida Festival, Bilbao BBK Live, Iveagh Gardens (Dublin), and Piazza Castello in Turin, which Robin Pecknold had announced yesterday on Instagram.
