This morning Rooster Walk announced the full lineup for the ninth installation of the Martinsville, VA music & arts festival that will take place from May 25th-28th, 2017 (which is Memorial Day Weekend). The lineup includes two Charleston bands: SUSTO and Stop Light Observations; as well as Greensky Bluegrass, The Wailers, Anders Osborne, and nearly 40 other bands. It’s awesome to see a bit of Charleston in the lineup alongside so many cool artists, and the venue sweetens the deal immensely.
Rooster Walk takes place on Pop’s Farm, a 151 acre outdoor venue in the beautiful foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. This year’s Rooster Walk will have 5 stages and tons of activities including a 5k race, a disc golf course and of course a ton of beer and food trucks, because that’s an activity too. There are camping and non-camping tickets available, and if you’re camping you can build a fire in a raised fire bowl.
I’ve included some photos from last year’s Rooster Walk below so you can get a better idea of what you’re working with, and below the photos you’ll find the full festival poster. Get your tickets here.
