Ramblin' Man Fair has added Cheap Trick, FM, Jimmy Barnes, Inglorious, Wayward Sons and more to it's growing 2019 line-up. The latest additions join headliners The Darkness, Black Stone Cherry and Foreigner for the festival which takes place at Mote Park, Maidstone from 19th - 21st July.
2019's Ramblin' Man follows on from the 2018 event, which saw The Cult, Steel Panther & Mott The Hoople ramble on, and 2017, which saw Extreme, ZZ Top, and Saxon put on a show fit for a king.
Rock N’ Roll Hall of Famers Cheap Trick join as Saturday Planet Rock Main Stage Special Guest. Fresh from a special guest slot with Def Leppard at the end of 2018, Cheap Trick make their debut at RMF. Since the 70’s the band have been blending elements of pop, punk and even metal in a way that is instantly catchy and recognizable. With timeless classics, such as 'I Want You to Want Me', 'Surrender', and the late 80’s favorite 'The Flame' they’ve sold over 20 million records and are a musical institution.
Returning following a slot in 2016, Inglorious are added to the Sunday Planet Rock Main Stage. The five piece are the rising stars of today’s British music landscape. With three studio albums, multiple headline and support tours, critical acclaim across the media and a loyal and fanatical fan base, the band is one of the most exciting and vital UK rock acts to emerge in years. Inglorious recently changed line up welcoming three excellent players: Danny Dela Cruz, Dan Stevens and Vinnie Colla joined the charismatic front man Nathan James and the relentless drummer Phil Beaver.
