With Memorial Day weekend quickly approaching, organizers are putting the finishing touches on the fifth annual Rooster Walk Music & Arts Festival.
Leftover Salmon and Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk will headline the May 23rd-26th festival, which is a charity event that successfully straddles the line between family-friendly fun and full-on party.
Other notable bands on the lineup include Yarn (two nights), Larry Keel & Sammy Shelor, Kung Fu, Dangermuffin, Sister Sparrow & the Dirty Birds as well as Josh Panda & the Hot Damned. Annual fan favorites Sanctum Sully, Lizzy Ross and the Kings of Belmont are also back for RW5. CLICK HERE for a full list of bands playing Rooster Walk.
RW5 takes place at the idyllic Blue Mountain Festival Grounds near Martinsville, Va. A full slate of arts, crafts and food vendors, as well as children’s activities, the Tuff Strutter 5K footrace, a disc golf course and workshop events are scheduled for the fifth annual festival, which has donated $20,000 to a scholarship fund at nearby Martinsville High School in its first four years.
Online tickets are available HERE. Volunteers are still needed for the festival, which drew more than 3,000 people last year. In exchange for two, six-hour shifts, volunteers will receive a free weekend pass to the festival. For more information on volunteering, CLICK HERE.
