NEWS: Red Rooster Festival announces first wave of artists for 2024

When: 30th May – 1st June 2024

Where: Euston Hall, Suffolk, England

The consistently excellent Red Rooster Festival will return for its 10th edition in 2024 in its customary location, the quite spectacular surroundings of Euston Hall, complete with its 300 acres of historical private gardens and beautiful rolling parkland. And to mark this special anniversary of the annual celebration of Cajun, soul, rock’n’roll, blues, roots and country music, Red Rooster has just announced the first wave of artists who will appear at next year’s event.

The legendary American swing band Asleep At The Wheel will play their last ever UK festival show at Red Rooster when they land at Euston Hall as part of their Happy Trails tour. They will be joined for this very special occasion by Red Rooster favourites Brennen Leigh and Joshua Hedley

Joining them on next year’s bill will be the American blues and soul singer-songwriter and guitarist, Robert Finley, who was last at the festival in 2022 when he put in a typically barnstorming performance on the main stage. 

Other artists to appear at Red Rooster 2024 will include the mercurial American slide guitar one-man band that is Bob Log III, who will take to the stage with his trademark crash helmet and black visor masking his face, a telephone wired in it for a mic, and wearing a blue jumpsuit; the celebrated English songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist, Kitty Liv – who has previously appeared at Red Rooster as part of Kitty, Daisy & Lewis; rising country rock band Brown Horse from nearby Norwich;  English rock’n’roll band, The Dirty Strangers;  the sizzling blues and rock’n’roll band, Rosco Shakes, whose live performances are the stuff of legend; and the Irish folk music singer-songwriter, Dylan Walshe.

It is all shaping up for what promises to be a cracking 10th-anniversary celebration.

Red Rooster Festival has consistently sold out for the past five years and tickets have already been flying off the shelves at a record pace for its 10-year anniversary in 2024. It is one of the best-value festival experiences with a few discounted Still Snoozin’ Rooster tickets still available for just £129.50 plus booking fee for the entire weekend which includes three nights of camping and complimentary parking. As always, children aged 12 years and under go free.

More line up news in February.
