A press release about the festival states: “We believe there’s a Ramblin’ Man – or Ramblin’ Woman – in all of us who wants to wander and listen to great music, drink fine beer, eat great food and have the best of times. Live life to the full and take it as it comes as you join the Ramblin’ Family from 2015

Ramblin’ Man Fair is delighted to announce the first set of acts headlining its Classic Rock and Prog Stages with more stages, including Country and Blues, and acts to be announced.

Scorpions are the one of the biggest selling hard rock bands of all time, with worldwide record sales of over 100 million. Formed in 1965 in Hanover, Germany, the band rose to international stardom in the late 70s and early 80s with a string of classic albums including Lovedrive, Blackout and Love At First Sting. A new Scorpions album is planned for release in 2015 to celebrate the band’s 50th anniversary.

Scorpions are very happy to be headlining Ramblin’ Man Fair. It’s an exciting new festival and our only UK show in 2015. We love playing the UK and can’t wait to deliver a set of Scorpions classics. See you down the front!“ – Scorpions

Gregg Allman is a legendary figure in American music. He was a founding member of The Allman Brothers Band, who defined the soulful sound of southern rock on iconic albums such as At Fillmore East (1971) and Eat A Peach (1972). As a solo artist, he has made a string of acclaimed albums, including 2011’s Low Country Blues, which reached number five on the US Billboard chart. Allman was inducted into The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in 2006, and in November 2014 he is to receive the Living Legend award at the Classic Rock Roll Of Honour event in Los Angeles. Millions of Top Gear fans around the world will recognise The Allman Brothers Song “Jessica” as the programmes theme tune.

Really looking forward to getting back to the UK with my band. I’ve always loved my British fans. Love playing for them. It’s going to be a lot of fun” – Gregg Allman

Camel are among the most revered British progressive rock groups from the golden generation of the early 70s. Formed in London, the band made their name with landmark albums Mirage, The Snow Goose and Moonmadness – described by allmusic.com as “majestic and canonical”. Still led by founding member Andrew Latimer, Camel completed a successful tour in 2014 playing The Snow Goose in its entirety. Among the new generation of rock musicians citing Camel as a key influence are Steven Wilson and Opeth’s Mikael Åkerfeldt.

Marillion are one of the world’s leading progressive rock bands, with a career spanning 35 years and 17 studio albums. With their original singer Fish, the band found huge success in the early 80s with albums such as Script For A Jester’s Tear and Misplaced Childhood – the latter yielding the hit single Kayleigh. And in the 25 years since Steve Hogarth took over from Fish, Marillion’s popularity has continued via a series of brilliant albums and pioneering fan interaction through the internet.

Marillion are proud to be heading-up the Prog Stage at Ramblin’ Man Fair next July. Exciting stuff indeed. On the right side of London for a hop across the channel, and so thoroughly recommended to our European fans as well as the Brits” – Marillion

The festival will take place in the beautiful Mote Park in Maidstone, Kent – the garden of England.

The park is one of the largest in South East England with more than 450 acres of mature parkland and a 30 acre lake. With multiple travel links via train (Ashford International, Maidstone East and Maidstone West in close proximity) and road (with three park and rides available around Maidstone). The festival site is also perfect for European festival goers with easy links to the London airports, the Chunnel and Ferries to and from mainland Europe.”

I started this website in 2011 because I always had a burning passion of sharing music and keeping people informed about what's going on in the metal and rock worlds. If I am not sitting in a dark room in front of a computer, listening to some obscure music (or Whitesnake), then I am usually found at a concert or a festival interviewing bands (or drinking beer).

  1. I wish Ticketmaster would just give a price, not a price + booking fee. It is false advertising. The ticket is not £99 as its impossible to buy a ticket for this price. The price is £108.99. End of.
