Red Rooster Festival remains on course to bring back live music this Summer with, as previously announced, rescheduled dates of Friday 27th- Sunday 29th August 2021.
Harry, Duke of Grafton and co-founder of Red Rooster says: “We are getting the Rooster site prepared for our new August Bank Holiday dates. Besides one of the most exciting music line-ups to-date, there’s lots of activities and fantastic food and drink on offer. I can’t wait to see people having a good time again at Red Rooster – you’ve been sorely missed.
Throughout this difficult time keeping safe has always been our prime consideration. We monitor Government guidance closely and will organise a safe and inclusive festival, allowing people of all ages to enjoy the very best of cajun, soul, rock n roll, blues, roots and country music in the heart of the East Anglian countryside.”
Set amongst 300 acres of the historical private gardens and rolling parkland of Euston Hall in Suffolk, designed by Capability Brown and William Kent, it is the perfect setting for weekend get-togethers, great soul food, and a general feel-good atmosphere. But most of all, it is about the long-awaited return of fantastic live music in an outdoor setting. And a free Bank Holiday Monday means time to recover or travel home.
As previously announced there’ll be performances from Richard Hawley, Jade Bird, Songhoy Blues, Kitty, Daisy & Lewis, Ida Mae, Ian Siegal, Little Barrie and many more – see the full line-up at redrooster.org.uk.
In addition to the huge music programme there will be lots of other activities, such as survival expert Will Lord, who presents his Prehistoric Experiences. Will and his team will be teaching skills from the Stone Age period, giving the opportunity to try the ancient craft of flint knapping, fire-lighting and natural cordage or disco pass the parcel. For the wild ones: den building in the woods. For the competitive ones, there’s traditional carnival games, tug of war, hook a duck, Wild West tin-can alley and much more to explore.
Dog lovers will have the House of Mutt and their trainer’s onsite to answer all canine questions, as well as doggy agility around their obstacle course.
For relaxation, Heilsa Therapies are on hand for massages and a variety of other treatments, the perfect way to rejuvenate incredible night of music and cocktails!
For food offerings, this year Red Rooster is delighted to announce Smoke & Fire Events, organiser of the award-winning Smoke & Fire Festivals, the nation’s Largest BBQ and Outdoor cooking Festival, as a new BBQ partner. They promise to bring their Low n Slow BBQ and Live Fire skills to curate the dawn of the new Red Roaster BBQ Pit arena, where you can expect some of the most experienced and exciting fire cooks and BBQ Pitmasters.
Pat and Jim from Smokin’ Soul Ireland, International Competition Pitmaster Phil Wingo of ‘Pork Mafia’ from Chicago, and Michael and Thomas of Origins BBQ, will all be on hand to offer up some great interactive demonstrations, passing on a ton of practical skills and also some great tasting food!

Besides a whole range of BBQ choices, there’ll be all the soul food of the Deep South and delicious street food too: jambalaya, chowders, smokin’ ribs, burritos, tacos, mac ‘n’ cheese and vegan options. And who could forget the fine selection of cocktails, beers and bourbons?
