Organiser Harry Grafton, from Euston Hall said, "We're so happy to have secured these talented and inimitable artists, some of which are making their debut UK festival appearances here at Red Rooster. We love these guys and we were thrilled to secure them but there’s still a lot more music line-up and other activities to be announced. In addition, there’ll be a bigger, bolder site at Euston this summer too."
Besides the main and smaller stages, Red Rooster plays host to campfires under the stars, a ‘gators lake, wide open cornfields, shady woodland and fun activities laid on for the kids, which all makes for an atmosphere evocative of Southern-style hospitality and one big fun lovin’ Creole party.
