NEWS: further line-up announcements for Red Rooster 2022

When: 2nd – 4th June 2022
Where: Euston Hall, Suffolk, England

Just before Christmas, we brought you details of the first artists due to appear at Red Rooster 2022, an excellent list of names including those of the North Mississippi Allstars, Cedric Burnside, Robert Finley, The Sheepdogs, and Chuck Prophet & The Mission Express.

Now we can bring you more exciting news, not only of the event headliners but also of many other wonderful acts who will all be heading to the idyllic surroundings of Euston Hall in early June. The highly acclaimed American blues musician and firm festival favourite Seasick Steve will headline the main stage at Red Rooster on Friday night. The following evening it will be the turn of South Californian rocker Nick Waterhouse, a man well-practiced in the art of modern-day rock’n’roll, rockabilly, and vintage R&B to top the bill. And that is before you get to the Grammy-nominated soul blues singer and songwriter Sugaray Rayford, renowned Nashville country star Joshua Hedley and the marvellous British indie folk/blues duo Smoke Fairies.

The two-time winner of the British Blues Award for Best Acoustic Performer and Best Songwriter, Marcus Bonfanti will also appear at this year’s Red Rooster Festival. Bringing her stunning blend of blues, jazz, soul, and gospel to the Suffolk countryside will be Bristol’s Beth Rowley who will also play alongside Robert Chaney, The Magic Numbers, Felix Holt, Louis Brennan, Josh Flowers, Laura Tenchert, Pat Ralla, and Joe Harvey Whyte as a unique collaboration of musicians and songwriters paying tribute to one of America’s greatest songwriters John Prine. Those of us lucky enough to have been at last year’s festival will recall the collective with their excellent homage to the famous music documentary Heartworn Highways.

The full list of acts already scheduled to perform at this year’s festival can be found HERE.

This year Red Rooster will also be joining the Festival of Suffolk, which aims to build a £5m Festival Fund by 2024, administered in partnership with the Suffolk Community Foundation. This fund will support grant funding to charities, community groups, and social enterprises in Suffolk who share festival values, and act in one or more of the six core areas:  Culture & Tourism, Opportunity & Education, Enterprise, Community, Environments and Health & Wellbeing.

Red Rooster has consistently sold out for the last four years. Tickets are priced at an incredibly reasonable £109.50 (plus booking fee) for the whole weekend, which includes three nights of camping and free parking. Children under 12 years can again come free as always and a new teen weekend ticket has been introduced for next year at £50 (plus booking fee). Furthermore, the weekend ticket price is also going to be capped for the next two years.
