Red Rooster Festival, which takes place at Euston Hall estate in Suffolk, have announced they will proceed in September with social distancing measures in place.

Red Rooster festival has announced that it is set "to go ahead" in 2020.

Following the government's stance on permitting socially distanced outdoor events, the festival - which showcases the best in cajun, rock 'n' roll, blues and country - has confirmed its plans to go ahead from 3-5 September this year.

The music event - which takes place in the grounds of Euston Hall estate in Suffolk - will become only one of a handful of festivals to take place in 2020 during the coronavirus pandemic.

The festival, which will enter into its 7th edition, have revealed they plan to achieve social distancing by introducing three outdoor stages.

"Festival Director & Production Manager James Brennan said: "We are working closely with our Health & Safety and Production teams to produce something that is truly magical without losing the spirit and atmosphere of our beautiful little festival. Over 60% of our audience stay in family group campervans which hugely helps us contain camping areas safely, plus by moving to outdoor stages only, we feel we can offer a safe environment in which to enjoy the festival."

He added: "Over the next few weeks we will be putting together stringent new plans and providing detailed information to ensure the safety of our audience, artists and crew, which is of course of paramount importance.

"Red Rooster would like to thank the government for lifting the restrictions and is delighted to welcome them to experience this fantastic festival, though as it's so reasonably-priced there won’t be a guest list so join us for the party to end all parties!"
