Red Rooster announces first line up

Festival Crowd Header

Red Rooster, the stunningly situated summer festival of Rhythm ‘n’ Blues, returns for its fourth year next summer 1st – 3rd June.

Red Rooster is delighted to announce the legendary Nick Lowe to lead the bill for next year’s festival.  Singer-songwriter, and producer Nick Lowe is a significant figure on the British music scene; a musician who has the ability to cross all genres with his honest and infectious songs. He led the way during punk rock but his impressive versatility has seen him embrace pop, and more recently country and Americana.  This genre has seen Nick turn out a fantastic string of albums, each one devised in his West London home, and recorded with a core of musicians who possess the same veteran savvy. Lowe brings wit and understated excellence to every performance, leading Ben Ratliff of the New York Times to describe his live show as “elegant and nearly devastating.”

‘I am delighted to be part of Red Rooster 2017. A great festival in a beautiful and historic setting.’ – Nick Lowe

From the home of Stones Throw Records, the cool and elegant Rhythm‘n’ Blues star Nick Waterhouse will be taking to the stage, as well as the full throttle soul machine that is Barrence Whitfield and The Savages.

Joining these incredible songsmiths is some outlaw country music for a new generation -  straight out of Texas -  Cale Tyson,  plus blisteringly hot blues from Ubeda, Spain, courtesy of Guadalupe Plata, and finally with their repertoire of 60s swamp Americana London’s The Hanging Stars are set to add to this potent musical mix.


Tickets are on sale now, priced £55 + Booking Fee for the weekend, which includes 3 nights of camping and parking. Day tickets for the Saturday are £35 and include 1 night of camping and parking. As always, Kids go FREE. Many more artists still to be announced.
