Ramblin’ Man Fair have announced some more key bands for the festival which runs between the 16th and 18th July 2021.
2021 will see the 6th Ramblin’ Man Fair, which has established itself as a staple of the UK festival calendar. Taking place in the rolling grasslands of Mote Park in Maidstone, the festival promises excellent bands in beautiful surroundings and a really friendly atmosphere.
Bands newly announced for Saturday on the Planet Rock main stage are: Europe (headline), Monster Magnet, Those Damn Crows and Clutch.
Europe will forever be recognised for their 1986 hit The Final Countdown, which reached number one in no less than 25 countries. Following a hiatus through the 1990s the band reformed in 2003 and continue to be a highly exciting live act.
Another classic rock band of long-standing, New Jersey’s Monster Magnet bring their psychedelic heavy sound back to Ramblin’ Man in 2021. The band have been led from the front by Dave Wyndorf for all of their 21 years. They have lost none of their attack as their latest release, the uncompromisingly titled Mindf*cker will attest.
Welsh five piece Those Damn Crows previously played the rising stage for upcoming artists at Ramblin’ Man. The band were selling out venues all over the country before Covid and will deservedly make their debut on the main stage at next year’s festival.
Finally, Clutch, who have a residency across all three days of the festival will play a Saturday main stage acoustic set.
These bands join the following acts already confirmed:
Planet Rock main stage Friday 16th July: Clutch (headliner), Fought, The Quireboys, Massive Wagons, the Steel Woods, the New Roses, Bad Touch, Hands Off Gretal, These Wicked Rivers
Prog In The Park stage Saturday 17th July: Big Big Train (headliner), Curved Air, Pure Reason Revolution, Moon Safari, Lazuli, Blurred Vision
The Blues stage Sunday 18th July: Clutch (headliners), Eric Gales, Samantha Fish, The Inspector Cluzo, Connor Selby, Blindstone
