Under new management, this year Spirit of Rock will present Ramblin’ Man Fair returning for a 2nd year to Mote Park in Maidstone, Kent on Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th July 2016.

The first acts confirmed are led by Whitesnake, with a supporting cast including Europe, Ginger (The Wildhearts), Procol Harum, Hawkwind, Hayseed Dixie, Walter Trout, Uriah Heep, King King, and Lifesigns.

David Coverdale, Whitesnake's lead singer said, "We are truly excited & looking forward to playing at the Ramblin' Man Fair in 2016 on what will be our 'Greatest Hits World Tour' & most likely my personal 'Farewell to Arena Rock' after over 40 years of writing & performing rock music. As I write this we are finishing our incredibly successful touring cycle of 2015...CO Headlining a monster UK tour with Def Leppard, releasing our tribute to Deep Purple Mark 3 & 4, Whitesnake 'The Purple Album' & touring this incredible world, I look back on an amazing, memorable journey of 4 decades of fun performing for millions of people. Whitesnake is singularly honoured to headline The Ramblin' Man Fair, looking forward to some British Fun in the sun... See You In 2016!!!"

Organisers state, "Ramblin' Man Fair's second year is set to be even bigger and better than last year. Concentrating on a core offering of classic and southern rock music showcasing both legends and new talent. Ramblin' Man Fair will come with a new emphasis on great food, fine bourbons and the colourful world of rock culture."
