First Wave of Acts Announced!
Jan 7th, 2016
We are back folks! Red Rooster Festival 2016 will see KING KHAN & THE SHRINES, BOB LOG III, JAMES LEG and DADDY LONG LEGS gracing our stages for your musical enjoyment!
Red Rooster will be King Khan & The Shrines first ever headlining slot at a UK festival. The Berlin-based psyche soul revue are a cult musical phenomenon with more than 10 years of international touring, and multiple studio records. They embrace punk, soul, free jazz and garage - Imagine Roky Erickson backed by the Sun Ra Arkestra or Wilson Pickett and The Velvet Underground, or picture the love child of Anubis and Kali. The combination is infectious. As magazine Line of Best Fit so poignantly puts it, ‘they beckon us to dance passionately and live fully in the wake of ever present darkness.’
Bob Log lll is a punk blues one man band from Tuscon, Arizona. Bob plays insane Mississippi Delta blues slide-guitar with hip hop beats performed in a full face crash helmet and cannon ball suit??!! Red Rooster will be Son of a Texan Baptist preacher James Leg ‘s first ever UK festival performance. James Leg plays blistering Gospel Punk Blues. Another act making their UK festival debut at Red Rooster are Daddy Long Legs , a blues wailing trio from Brooklyn fresh off a US tour with The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion.
Red Rooster sets out to champion the very best in R’n’B, Americana, Blues, Soul, Roots and Country – a diary entry for those who wish to immerse themselves in a truly Deep South weekend experience of music, food and culture.
