Ramblin’ Man Fair is the must see event for discerning festival goers. A quality musical line up with a number of UK exclusive performances. The event will be a unique experience set to become a staple of the UK festival calendar.

The festival will take place in the beautiful Mote Park in Maidstone, Kent – the garden of England. The park is one of the largest in South East England with more than 450 acres of mature parkland and a 30 acre lake. With multiple travel links via train (Ashford International, Maidstone East and Maidstone West in close proximity) and road (with three park and rides available around Maidstone). The festival site is also perfect for European festival goers with easy links to the London airports, the Channel and Ferries to and from mainland Europe.
Ramblin’ Man Fair is now under the ownership of new music event company Spirit of Rock, the first IP acquisition activity by ex Team Rock and Classic Rock/Metal Hammer magazine Managing Director Chris Ingham. Spirit of Rock is a division of RFS Entertainment.
In a statement Spirit Of Rock said, "Now under new management, year two of Ramblin’ Man Fair will be even bigger and better than year one. The festival will concentrate on a core offering of classic rock, prog and Southern rock music showcasing both legends and new talent. Ramblin’ Man Fair will come with a new emphasis on great food, fine bourbons and the colourful world of rock culture.”

Spirit Of Rock Director Chris Ingham adds, “Ramblin’ Man 2016 is my first venture with the Spirit of Rock, the company I formed in partnership with RFS entertainment after twenty years at Classic Rock and Metal Hammer magazines and latterly, with TeamRock. I actually attended the 2015 concert in Mote Park and I was hugely impressed not only by the diversity of the artists but also the great atmosphere and the sheer potential of the brand.
It’s time to create a music festival that appeals as much to the foodie as it does the rock music fan in us all. Let’s have Classic Rock, Southern Rock, Prog, Blues and Country music stages alongside great outdoor BBQ food, fine bourbon whiskies and barrels of real ale in the heart of Maidstone’s beautiful Mote Park. Knowing whom we have booked to play and alongside these new areas Ramblin’ Man 2016 will be a very special weekend indeed, don’t miss out.” – Chris Ingham
