NEWS: Red Rooster Festival to go ahead this September

Following the recent government statement allowing certain performing arts to take place outdoors from the 11th of July with a socially distanced audience present, Red Rooster Festival has confirmed that it will go ahead from Friday 4th to Sunday 6th September 2020.

Red Rooster will be one of only a handful of festivals which will take place this year. Set amongst 10,000 acres of stunning parklands and pleasure grounds at Euston Hall estate in Suffolk, the 7th edition of the 5,000-capacity festival will proceed with appropriate social distancing. The UK’s premier roots festival will now have three outdoor stages celebrating the best in Cajun, Soul, Rock’n’Roll, Blues and Country music. 

Festival Director and Production Manager James Brennan says:

“We are working closely with our Health & Safety and Production teams to produce something that is truly magical without losing the spirit and atmosphere of our beautiful little festival. Over 60% of our audience stay in family group campervans which hugely helps us contain camping areas safely, plus by moving to outdoor stages only, we feel we can offer a safe environment in which to enjoy the festival. Over the next few weeks, we will be putting together stringent new plans and providing detailed information to ensure the safety of our audience, artists and crew, which is of course of paramount importance.”

Having had to cancel the original dates for the festival in May due to the Coronavirus outbreak, the revised full music line-up announcement will be made shortly.
