Ramblin’ Man Fair 2021 follows on from 2019 which had Foreigner fill the night with jukebox classics, 2018, which saw The Cult, Steel Panther & Mott The Hoople ramble on, and 2017, which witnessed Extreme, ZZ Top, and Saxon put on a show fit for a king.
The festival will take place on the 16th, 17thand 18thJuly 2021. Ramblin’ Man Fair are delighted to announce the first wave of acts creating an already spectacular bill.
We at Ramblin’ Man Fair are delighted to announce that Clutch will be at 2021 and introduce a new festival residency concept.
Clutch are one of the most exciting new generation of rock acts and fans at Ramblin’ Man Fair 2021 will have the unique opportunity to see the band on three separate days playing three different sets. Starting with a Mainstage headline set on Friday, followed by a Main stage semi acoustic set on Saturday, and closing with a Blues Stage headline jam featuring a host of special guests and special songs on Sunday, you won’t want to miss a moment. The chance to see Clutch in their many guises in 2021 will make Ramblin’ Man Fair a truly unmissable occasion. Ramblin’ Man Fair will be looking to expand the festival residency concept with more incredible acts for 2021.
The three sets over the weekend will be very different:
Friday Night “Who Wants To Rock?”Set - A blistering set of Clutch bangers to kick the weekend off. Full on electric rocking!
Saturday Afternoon “An Afternoon At The Doom Saloon” Set - A slow-burning set of Clutch classics, semi acoustic grooves, and more! The band will start mellow and acoustic and gradually pick up steam….
Sunday Night “Sound Attack!” Set - The rock ‘n roll masters round out the weekend fusing Go-Go, Funk and some Blues… This set, featuring a number of special guests, will be the most experimental in nature and the party set!
Formed in 1991, Clutch have released twelve studio albums packed with modern-day classics, including songs such as “Hot Bottom Feeder”, “The Regulator”, “Electric Worry”, “Spacegrass”, “The Mob Goes Wild”, and “50,000 Unstoppable Watts”. The Maryland group’s last two studio albums – ‘Psychic Warfare’ and ‘Book Of Bad Decisions’ were voted Classic Rock magazine’s Album Of The Year. Clutch’s first headline set continues Ramblin’ Man Fair’s intention to find the headline festival acts of the future - the festival also gave Black Stone Cherry their first UK festival headline.
Clutch are a stunning live act - wooing crowds across the globe with their riff driven blues rock. With their breadth of material and versatility, Clutch are the perfect act to launch Ramblin’ Man Fair’s residency concept. The band’s unique three-day three-set run is sure to be a highlight of Ramblin’ Man Fair 2021 and it will exclusively be the only UK festival you can see Clutch at next year.
"We are very flattered to have been asked to do three sets at Ramblin’ Man 2021. We plan to make each set as distinct as possible. The first set, on Friday, will be the barn burner, Saturday will be more of a semi-acoustic set, and for Sunday we plan to invite many friends to jam out to the end. Then, we will sleep." - Neil Fallon (Clutch)
“Ramblin Man Fair is committed to developing the festival headliners of tomorrow and, wherever we can to, innovate the established format of the rock festival. It’s wonderful then that we can kill two birds with one stone and announce Clutch - the band of the moment in rock terms - and our residency concept together. Three sets in three musical styles on three stages over three days - what better way is there for both Clutch and Ramblin Man Fair to lay out their collective visions?” - Chris Ingham, Spirit Of Rock (Ramblin’ Man Fair organisers)
FOGHAT (Planet Rock Mainstage) – 70’s rock legends Foghat will be making their Ramblin’ Man Fair debut this year and we couldn’t be more excited. With a career spanning nearly five decades Foghat’s live performances show why the band is still around today and why they will be able to keep on rockin’ as long as they want. This band truly is timeless. Constant touring is part of their DNA and the band just loves to play. Their live show is as intense as ever with the incredible energy and musicianship that one would expect and hope for from a seasoned band with such a long musical history.
