Red Rooster music festival was set to take place at Euston Hall in Suffolk, just south of Thetford, on May 28 to 30, with headlining acts Richard Hawley and Asleep at the Wheel.

It is a highly anticipated event in the music calendar for country music and rock and roll fans, but the festival has had to be postponed as the coronavirus continues to spread across the country.

It is now set to take place on September 4 to 6, and organisers have reassured that their main headliners will be there.

In an statement released on its website, Red Rooster said: “After much deliberation and with the safety of our audience being of the utmost importance, Red Rooster 2020 has been postponed and will now take place 4-6th September at Euston Hall.
