NEWPORT, R.I. (AP) ' For the first time in its history, the Newport Folk Festival has sold out of tickets in advance.

Producer George Wein announced Tuesday that no tickets remain for the two-day music festival. It is scheduled for July 30 and 31 at Fort Adams State Park in Newport.

The festival was first held in 1959 and is known as the place where Bob Dylan went electric in 1965. The event has never sold out of tickets for both days.

Organizers say some 10,000 people are expected to attend each day of the festival.

Artists appearing at this year's festival include the Decemberists, Emmylou Harris, Elvis Costello and Gillian Welch.
