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
“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
“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
