Ramblin’ Man Fair 2019 will be taking place on 19-21 July in Mote Park, Maidstone, Kent, UK. This event is by now a well-established, family-friendly annual event. It takes place over a weekend at the beautiful Maidstone Park, which is one of the largest in South East England: more than 450 acres of parkland and a 30-acre lake, great connections to London and it’s perfect for close and far festival goers.

Ramblin’ Man Fair is highly accessible 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). European festival goers will find easy links to the London airports, Eurostar via Ashford Int’l and Channel Ferries to and from mainland Europe.

In its first four years Ramblin’ Man Fair has already managed to host names like Scorpions, Dream Theater, Whitesnake, Black Stone Cherry, ZZ Top, Black Star Riders and plenty others. This year the festival will be celebrating its fifth anniversary with headliners like the British rockers The Darkness on Friday night; Black Stone Cherry, which will be promoting their current proclaimed album Family Tree on Saturday night, and on Sunday the headlining duty will go to to non other than English-American rock band Foreigner.

Cheap Trick, Inglorious, FM, Jimmy Barnes, Wayward Sons and Raven Eye have been added to the main stage line-up.

Other artists announced include Kris Barras, The Lazys, Austin Gold (main stage), Vola, Scardust (prog stage), Elles Bailey, Chantel McGregor (blues stage), Wille And The Bandits, Allman Betts Band (outlaw stage), Joyous Wolf (grooverider stage).
