Red Rooster Festival 2016, 2-4 June

Not long now until my favourite festival, Red Rooster, with another cracking line up …

The setting, the vibe, and the music is top notch. Relaxed, friendly just down the road on the Norfolk-Suffolk border. Check out the superb line-up for this year (Norwich is well-represented as you will see).

You can read about last year’s here and 2014’s here.

Headliners James Hunter Six bring a classic yet modern brand of rhythm n blues

that captivates listeners across the generations and earned them two Billboard Blues

Chart #1’s in the process. They headline along with King Khan & The Shrines. They

have recently signed to Daptone Records releasing the critically-acclaimed album,

‘Hold On!’ The Handsome Family from New Mexico bring their unique, highly

descriptive narrative and exhilarating musical re-imaginings of everything from

Appalachian holler, psychedelic rock, Tin Pan Alley and medieval ballad!

This year Red Rooster also introduces new late-night hotspot, The Howlin’ Woods. 

Designed in the style of an old-school Southern record store, resident DJs will be

spinning the finest RnB, Soul and Rock n Roll  ‘til the early hours, whilst the bar

serves some of the finest shots on the planet. ‘Take a load off by day and get lost by

night’ is our watchword.

Red Rooster aims to champion the very best in R’n’B, Americana, Blues, Soul, Roots

and Country, the perfect destination for a ‘Deep South’ weekend of music, food and culture.

Located in the beautiful private gardens of Euston Hall in Suffolk, designed by

celebrated landscape designers William Kent and ‘Capability’ Brown, Red Rooster

attracts not only music devotees but families, festival goers, and tenderfoots alike. 

The backdrop is idyllic, the atmosphere laid back and engaging.  Kids can run freely

through vast corn fields, families can enjoy lip-smacking authentic ribs and soul food

by a campfire under the stars, and most importantly enjoy a fun event where the

whole kit and caboodle can get down and dirty to the raucous sounds radiating from

the woodland’s main stage venue.  The days are slower in the South so there’s also

plenty of time to kick back and enjoy the roaming brass bands, who recreate the

spirit of the French Quarter, New Orleans. 

The hospitality, food and culture of the Deep South is fully embraced at Red Rooster

with a number of award-winning street food traders. Sample authentic Creole-style

cooking with Colonel Tom’s gumbo, gourmet mac’n’cheese from the Mac Factory,

Southern Comfort soul food from Soul & Pepper, Texan BBQs & brisket from The

Harbercue,  Southern-style jackfruit tacos from the infamous Club Mexicana.

This year Red Rooster welcomes on board  Man Meat Fire recent winner of ‘Best Low & Slow’ in TVs ‘BBQ Champ.’ hosted by Adam Richman and Myleene Klass.
