Ramblin' Man Fair has added three more acts to its' bulging 2019 bill. Joining headliners The Darkness, Black Stone Cherry and Foreigner for the festival which takes place at Mote Park, Maidstone from 19th - 21st July, are The Temperance Movement, Ugly Kid Joe, and Everlast.
RMF 2019 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.
The Temperance Movement released their critically acclaimed third album last year entering the UK album chart in the Top 10. 'A Deeper Cut' showed the world The Temperance Movement are back with their defining sound, which blends lyrical intensity and flawless music performance into a continuum of exciting rock. The band has also been conquering stages across the UK and Europe, winning over legion of fans with their enticing live performances.
Formed in 1987, Ugly Kid Joe burst onto the scene in 1991 with their multi-platinum debut EP ‘As Ugly As They Want Be’ - which shattered all records at that time becoming the biggest selling EP of all time. They followed this up with critically acclaimed records 'Americas Least Wanted', 'Menace to Sobriety' and 'Motel California' through the 1990s, which spawned an array of hit singles including anthem 'Everything About You'. After a hiatus of over a decade the band returned with EP 'Stairway to Hell' and then 2015’s critically acclaimed album 'Uglier Than They Used To Be'.
Says lead singer Whitfield Crane: “UKJ is excited to play Ramblin’ Man Fair this year! We’ve be keeping an eye on it the past couple years and it’s grown into a monster! We are excited to feed the monster!”
Once best known for his tenure in the rap unit House of Pain, Everlast successfully reinvented himself in 1998 with the best-selling Whitney Ford Sings the Blues. The critically acclaimed platinum selling record spurred a whole new career for Everlast which has gone from strength to strength most recently with last years release and his 8th solo studio album ‘Whitney Ford’s House of Pain’. This year Everlast will bring his unique blend of blues to Ramblin’ Man Fair when he performs on the Blues Stage on Sunday 21st.
