Wild Rooster Festival
Wild Rooster Festival is back! Get yourself in gear for some roots, rockabilly, bluegrass, uptempo blues and rock 'n' roll, as Wild Rooster Festival invites you to enjoy two days of free music in The Hague.
Mesmerising sounds of American blues
Leave the real world behind with the mesmerising sounds of American bands - from Texas to the Mississippi Delta and beyond. As in the southern states of the USA, the fertile playground of roots music is very much alive in Europe too.
The stages at Grote Markt will be filled with bands possessing imaginative names like Mud Wrestling, Small Time Crooks, Sugarboy and the Sinners, Red Herring, Miss Mary Ann & the Ragtime Wranglers, Dust Bowl Drifters, Larry and his Flask and many more.
Eye-opening roots crossovers
Roots crossovers can really open our eyes to new perspectives in music. At this free music festival, you’ll hear not only traditional blues but also rock ‘n’ roll, rockabilly, hillbilly, Dixieland, ragtime, country, country-blues, old-time, jazz and even a dash of heavy metal and punk.
Get ready for the barbecue on Grote Markt
The wild music will most likely make you hungry, so leave plenty of room for barbecued burgers, chicken and even extra large beef ribs! You'll also find true American barbecued corn-on-the-cob. The Wild Rooster Festival has grown to become a super-size festival, and it wouldn't be complete without feasting on this great food. Utterly irresistible.
