“Rooster Walk Music and Arts Festival Poised to Become Premiere Southeast Roots Rock Event”
Rooster Walk Music and Arts Festival is one of the best up-and-coming events you’ve never heard of.
That’s about to change. With this year’s star-studded roots rock lineup and a new home, you can count on it.
Rooster Walk started with a couple of bands and more than a couple kegs in a field on the outskirts of Martinsville, Virginia, as a way to honor two high school buddies who died too young.
Two years ago, Blue Ridge Outdoors Magazine named the event the best “Underground Festival” in the mid-Atlantic and Southeast.
But there’s nothing “underground” about this Memorial Day weekend event, scheduled May 21-24. It will feature headliners Yonder Mountain String Band and more than a dozen other heavy hitters, including Lake Street Dive, Steep Canyon Rangers, Southern Culture on the Skids and Donna the Buffalo.
