Rooster Walk 12 Announces Early Bird Lineup


The Infamous Stringdusters, Melvin Seals & JGB and Fruition are among the acts on the 2020 Rooster Walk lineup. Organizers for the festival, which takes place May 21 – 24, 2020 at Pop’s Farm near Martinsville, Virginia revealed the event’s “early bird band lineup” and put tickets on sale.

BIG Something, Yarn, The Vegabonds, Big Daddy Love and Sexbruise? round out the initial Rooster Walk 12 lineup. More of the approximately 50 acts that will play RW12’s five stages will be revealed in the weeks and months to come.

“This is a just a taste of the 40-plus-bands that will perform at the festival this year, and it’s an exciting start,” said Johnny Buck, a Rooster Walk organizer, in a statement. “We can’t wait to have The Infamous Stringdusters play for the first time at Pop’s Farm; they haven’t been at Rooster Walk since back in the Blue Mountain days. Melvin Seals & JGB will bring authentic Jerry Garcia Band tunes, which will no doubt be a highlight, and Fruition is a great roots-rock band that we’ve always wanted to have at the festival. Even better, we’ve got a lot more bands to come, including the top two headliners.”

Tickets for Rooster Walk 12 are on sale now via Eventbrite.
