Monster Magnet have been added to the line up for 2019's Ramblin' Man Fair. Joining headliners The Darkness, Black Stone Cherry and Foreigner for the festival which takes place at Mote Park, Maidstone from 19th - 21st July, Dave Wyndorf's crew will headline the Grooverider Stage.
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.
Retro-rock visionaries Monster Magnet have become one of the most successful and influential bands associated with the so-called underground stoner rock scene. And yet, their influences span much further than that scene's foundations in '70s hard rock and metal, delving into space rock, psychedelia, and beyond.
Fusing their metal, punk, space rock, and psychedelic influences, the band developed a sludgy, feedback-heavy hard rock sound that helped them stand out through the decades and continue to this day.
After celebrating their 30th anniversary last year and with a host of critically acclaimed albums under the belt including the most audacious, devil-may-care deep dive into ‘60s acid rock that this is ‘Spine of God’,the greatest space rock album recorded outside of the ‘60s and ‘70s ‘Dopes to Infinity’and the iconic ‘Powertrip’ which encapsulated everything that was great about their retro-rock revival.Monster Magnet are a fantastic addition to this years already stellar Ramblin’ Man Fair line up.
