Virginia’s Rooster Walk festival has shared its initial lineup, featuring two sets of Billy Strings, two sets of Mountain Heart and a single set of Shovels & Rope.
Virginia natives Kendall Street Company are also on the roster of the May 23-26 event, as are Yarn, State Birds (with Sipe, Seal, Fountain & Lopes) and C2 & The Brothers Reed.
“This is a great start to our lineup, and just a taste of the 50-or-so bands that will perform at the festival this year,” said Rooster Walk organizer Johnny Buck in a statement. “We’ve wanted to host Shovels & Rope for a while now, so it’s very exciting to have them on board. And then there are some major fan-favorites already on the bill, like Mountain Heart and Yarn, that our fans request each year. We’ve got a lot more bands to come, including the top two headliners.”
In addition to the live acts, Rooster Walk 2018 will feature “a wide variety of kids’ activities, craft beer, great food, arts and numerous opportunities to enjoy Virginia’s great outdoors with kayak tours, bike rides, yoga, a disc golf course and beautiful on-site camping.”
Tickets for Rooster Walk 2018 go on sale Wednesday, Nov. 21 at 12 Noon ET.
