#SummerofFUV Music Guide


2018 Guide to Summer Music

Live music is an essential part of summer, and this "Summer of FUV," FUV is back at the BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival and Forest Hills Stadium to broadcast live, and making the rounds at festivals all over the area — so keep an eye out for the WFUV crew.

The Decemberists: BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn 2018

Back in June when the Decemberists were forced to postpone their BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival show because of Colin Meloy's lost voice, fans were disappointed and concerned. But Meloy is back to health, and last night the eminent Portland, Oregon literary rockers returned to Prospect Park for a rescheduled show with triumph and delight — and all was broadcast live on WFUV as part of our "Summer of FUV" concert series.

Newport Folk Festival 2018: Highlights

It's hard to name a more special musical experience than the annual Newport Folk Festival. Artists convene from all over the world, whether they're scheduled to perform or not, and they share all four stages with spirit. FUV's Rita Houston and Carmel Holt are longtime veterans of the fest. Below, they share daily highlights of the most exciting moments, some of which we'll share on WFUV.

Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats: Forest Hills Stadium 2018

Like The Head and the Heart, WFUV has been on board with Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats since the release of their first single. So when Rita Houston and I co-hosted a live broadcast from the WFUV Clubhouse at Forest Hills Stadium on Friday night with both bands, there was a lot of "FUV LUV" in the house, and fans shared their adoration with us all night.

The Head and the Heart: Forest Hills Stadium 2018

Almost a decade into a career that began at open mic nights in Seattle, The Head and the Heart rolled into Forest Hills Stadium last night. The band has a long history with WFUV that includes playing our 2011 Holiday Cheer for FUV show at the Beacon Theatre only months after their debut album came out.
