Fine, we were due for a little rain, but it's not stopping Team FUV, here in Newport with our friends from NPR Music. We're uploading music from the main stage, which we're archiving in the FUV Vault. Photos of all the action are going onto our Flickr stream and in the gallery below.

On the Fort Stage Sunday: Mavis Staples, Jeff Tweedy, Conor Oberst, Dawes, Thao & The Get Down Stay Down, Ages and Ages, The Berklee Gospel Choir

Of course we had to head over to the Harbor Stage to see some of that fine Hozier fella (with special guests), and get our guitar groove on with Rodrigo y Gabriela on the Quad Stage. And speaking of special guests, the turnout for Mavis Staples' 75th birthday is going to be the talk of the festival for years to come!

A beautiful Saturday in the park on the water, and Team FUV is here with our friends from NPR Music to upload music from the main stage, which we're archiving in the FUV Vault. Photos of all the action are going onto our Flickr stream and in the gallery below. We'll keep this page updated as we go.

On the Fort Stage Saturday: Nickel Creek, Deer Tick, Shovels & Rope, Pokey LaFarge, Aoife O'Donovan

There were a couple of surprises on the Quad stage, including Austin big band The Oh Hellos, who had the place jumpin', and New Orleans guitar dynamo Benjamin Booker. Shakey Graves shook the Harbor Stage, another fine Austin representative. More to come!
