Organisers of this summer's Ramblin’ Man Fair have announced a further flurry of acts, bringing the line-up to almost 40 acts.
The rock festival, which will be held in Mote Park, Maidstone, on Saturday, June 30 and Sunday, July 1 will see Myles Kennedy, Skinny Molly, No Hot Ashes and Thomas Wynn And The Believers taking to the stages.
Myles Kennedy, who will play the Country Stage, has been the singer/songwriter of Alterbridge and Slash’s band Myles Kennedy And The Conspirators. This year he has released his first solo album, Year Of the Tiger, and the fair marks his first UK festival appearance as a solo artist.
He said of the album: “I’ve always wanted to make a record where I could have the opportunity to explore and document a different element of my musical DNA. I was trying to tap into something a little more subtle, as opposed to a big, bombastic, high gain sonic attack.”
Also announced is Skinny Molly, who were founded in 2004 by guitarist/vocalist Mike Estes, formerly of Lynyrd Skynyrd and Blackfoot, with Dave Hlubek and studio drummer Kurt Pietro.
No Hot Ashes will be playing a varied set list which includes some Status Quo and even Haircut one Hundred on the Main Stage on the Saturday. The original line-up first got together in 1983 with Rolo Gillespie and Davey Irvine.
They join the likes of second headliners Mott the Hoople, originally formed back in 1969 and responsible for the classic All the Young Dudes. Their line-up for the 2018 exclusive festival performance will be Ian Hunter, Ariel Bender, and Morgan Fisher with James Mastro, Mark Bosch, Dennis Dibrizzi, Paul Page and Steve Holley. They play the main stage.
Acts already announced include The Cult, Steel Panther, Blackberry Smoke, GUN, Steve Earle & The Dukes, Fish and stalwarts Chas n' Dave on the Blues Stage.
Organisers are staying tight-lipped, however, about whether there will be further additions to the line-up.
Ramblin’ Man Fair will be in Mote Park, Maidstone on Saturday, June 30 and Sunday, July 1. Tickets cost £256 for VIP Saturday and Sunday, £156 general admission Saturday and Sunday, with camping starting at £49. To book go to ramblinmanfair.com
