The first acts have been announced for Ramblin' Man Fair returning for a 3rd year to Mote Park in Maidstone, Kent on Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th July 2017.
ZZ Top are an exclusive and will headline the Main Stage, while also on the bill are Monster Truck, Jared James Nichols, Kansas (Prog in the Park Stage Headliner), Magnum, Joanne Shaw Taylor (Blues Stage Headliner), The Quireboys (performing an exclusive Blues set), Big Boy Bloater and Dan Baird and Homemade Sin (Outlaw Country Stage).
Festival Director Chris Ingham says, "Last year’s Ramblin Man Fair was a huge success in all areas. We were overwhelmed by the great spirit and general bonhomie of the crowd as the sun shone brightly, the ale poured freely and the bands played on. We welcome all the past ramblers back to Mote Park for 2017 as much as we look forward to welcoming the new friends who have heard just how much fun our special little festival has become. We promised that we would up the ante for 2017 and the team at RMF HQ can guarantee that the bill that has been assembled will hit every lifelong rock fan’s sweet spot! This is but the first round of announcements - stay tuned for more transmissions."
Tickets are priced at £150 for the weekend (camping £59 extra), with under 12's free. To see all of the ticket options please use the tickets link just above.
The festival will concentrate 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.
