Ramblin' Man Fair announce first bands for 2018

Halestorm and Blackberry Smoke are among the first names confirmed for next year's Ramblin' Man Fair.

The festival, now in its fourth year, returns to Mote Park in Maidstone, Kent on Saturday 30th June and Sunday 1st July 2018, which is earlier than its usual slot at the end of July. 

Halestorm, Blackberry Smoke and Sons Of Apollo have all been confirmed to be performing on the main stage in the first announcement, with all three appearances being billed as UK festival exclusives.

Speaking about Halestorm's Sunday night special guest slot, Lzzy Hale said: “We are so excited to be performing at the Ramblin Man Fair for the first time! We love playing for our fans in the UK and look forward to making some new friends too. We are ready to melt faces!!"

Blackberry Smoke frontman Charlie Starr enthused: “We can’t wait to bring some Southern music to the Ramblin Man Fair... it’s refreshing to play festivals with such diverse lineups.”

Elsewhere, Steve Earle & The Dukes will headline the Outlaw Country Stage with a UK exclusive 'Copperhead Road plus hits' set.
