Red Rooster Festival returns for 10th Anniversary

Poster received from promoter karen@orbitpr.netAs spring filters into summer, it’s time for 2024’s Red Rooster Festival in Suffolk over the 30th May to 1st June weekend.  The festival celebrates its 10th anniversary this year and features an impressive list of acts from across all the genres that touch americana, as well as film, dance lessons and a range of activities from axe throwing to dog agility course (which may or may not be related).

As you might expect the festival marks its first decade with an impressive array of headliners including Asleep At The Wheel featuring Joshua Hedley and Brennnen Leigh, giving their ‘last ever UK festival performance’; William Bell as part of a celebration of the music of Memphis and the South with Take Me To The River All Stars (which features Al Green’s band Hi Rhythm, Chief Bo Dollis and Boo Mitchell amongst others); and Galen & Paul, the duo setting for Galen Ayers and Paul Simenon.

There is a strong supporting cast which includes teenage Donegal blues prodigy, Muireann Bradley, London psych folk-rockers, The Hanging Stars, and recent Loose signing Brown Horse, whose new album has been generating a lot of praise. Also playing are Vieira & the Silvers / Mckinley James / Little George Sueref / Joe Harvey-Whyte & Bobby Lee / Ufo Rodeo Band / Nick Etwell’s Nola 5 / Dylan Walshe / Rosco Shakes / Sister Suzie & Andy Twyman / The Caezars / Erika & The Ravens/ Snakemilk / J.S. & The Lockerbillies / Swamp Truck / Kaspar & The Swamp Dogs / The Mccurdy Bros / The Cain Pit / Jack Browning / Locks / Laurence Kingston and Mama Oh No.

The festival has consistently sold out for the past five years – weekend tickets this year are available for £149.50 + booking fee with three nights of camping and complimentary parking. As always, children aged 12 and under go free and discounted teen tickets are available also. Tickets are on sale now and details can be found on their website
