Latest Festival Flyer update from Ramblin’ Man Fair
Next up playing Ramblin’ Man 2018 and for ‘Prog In The Park’ we have…
Headlining Prog In The Park: He’s Scottish, he’s very tall, he was the front man of one of the most successful prog artists of the 80’s before launching he’s own rather successful solo career, none other than Fish! And to top it all he will be performing tracks from the critically acclaimed ‘Clutching At Straws’
After their mind blowin’ first performance at Ramblin’ Man in 2016 we just had to have them back. All the way from Finland, bringing their hedonistic mix of progressive rock to the Fair, they are the ferociously talented Von Hertzen Brothers!
It’s a Ramblin’ Man debut, bringing their soaring ballads, anthemic epics and led by the charismatic voice of Olivia Sparnenn-Josh, a must see band that ticks every progressive box, the mesmerising Mostly Autumn
More announcements soon….

As a 111 call handler, so not frontline like others, but still working hard to make sure everyone is safe, thank you. It is nice to know that organisers of events like RMF take time to think about us at times like this
Makes me cry I’m lucky to work with some of the frontline hero’s, they know the danger but still they care 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
Back to it tomorrow 😷🦠🤞

I’ll skip it thanks. The first time I want to hear them play this is at RMF this July. 🤘😎🤘
Mid July. Rmf. Mote Park. Massive Wagons. Immense!!
Well this has kicked away the isolation boredom 🎸🎤🎶😎🍻🤘
Fernando Didonato wouldn’t mind seeing these
The song that got me singing yesterday was Southern by TC3
Awesome, that got the energy up at the end of a long day indoors 🤜
Love it 🤘

You will of course have seen that both Glastonbury and now Download festivals have had no option but to cancel their events in June. Perhaps now you are wondering what intentions we at RMF HQ may have toward our own show. So here it is: as the situation currently stands, we are still very much intending to go ahead with Ramblin Man Fair 2020 over the weekend of July 17-19.
If the obvious needed to be stated: there are significant differences between the vast scale of both Glastonbury and Download and that of RMF. Both Glasto and DL require significant Police and Emergency Services support, not least to help shut down motorway exits. Clearly RMF does not draw upon such state resources at our level of attendance. Moreover, Glasto is so big that it actually starts the perimeter fence build in March - and due to the current lockdown that process couldn’t be started, and as such was one of the main logistical reasons for them opting to take a fallow year and let the farming ground recover.
The way we see it is if the ban on mass gatherings has lapsed by mid June - and we are all rather hoping that it will, aren’t we? - then RMF will go ahead as planned. If it hasn’t or if it categorically looks like a lift on the ban won’t happen in June by an obvious point earlier than that (like a govt edict for all summer events stating so) then of course we will be looking at taking different decisions.
In the past couple of weeks the RMF team have been in constant contact with the artists booked to play this year’s festival. Over 90% of them have stated that they still intend to come and play this summer - including those from America.
But let us be realistic for a moment, Those same US artists stating now, in late March, that they feel that they will be prepared to travel in July to play in the UK could well be making a different decision as a rapidly developing Covid-19 picture unfolds around them and more lockdowns are issued. As such, we at RMF are drawing up a list of bands based in the UK who have found that conversely, they too aren’t now able to tour the US this summer either. So, even if those US artists do change their minds about RMF then there is an intention to still go ahead. But hey, when you listen to Trump, the US will have Covid-19 licked by Easter, so who are we to worry?
Looking forward to our second year at RM Stay safe Rob & Leon X
Well said, as long as we all do our bit for the now, together we can make sure our events get back on track. As one member of Bad Touch, we are beyond honoured to be on the main stage this year and we sincerely hope it can go ahead. So everyone stay inside, stay safe and let’s make this year the year that we all pulled together to beat this thing ✌️
thanx for the update Ramblin Man team ....hope you and all the Ramblin Man ramblers out there are all keeping yourselves safe....the worrying thing is that scientist are saying that this virus could return with a second wave later in the year ...fingers crossed that it doesn't tho ...hugs to you all and keep on rockin' :}Xxx😈😈😈
Good luck and hope so much it does go ahead as ever since the first year it has been the highlight of my year. Thank you for the update and wish you all well. Ultimately the final outcome may be out of your hands but fingers crossed
Thank you for the update RMF. We're all in the same boat. Hopefully we'll be Rambling in July ! Keep it safe.
well done RMF. Gonna be a hell of a cheer when the 1st band takes the stage!
Thanks for the honesty. If we all do the isolation thing now maybe it will work.
Keeping everything crossed. Your planning is excellent. Let’s hope the current bill stands, its excellent, but I’m sure we’d all support the “substitutes” too 🤘🏼
Fingers crossed for you guys and thanks for the update I and the family will be there if it goes ahead it’s going to be the best damn party ever 🤘🤘🤘
Fingers crossed it will go ahead & that the line up stays the same! 🤞🤞
Thanks for a detailed update. Here's to hoping it all goes ahead. Great job team RMF! ❤️🤞🤘
Once again RMF explain how and why things work, so as customers we know where we stand. Thanks guys, and let’s hope those Metal Gods are smiling on us this summer
Spot on with the messaging thanks guys! Who knows, by then they might have discovered that Kent ale is the cure for Corvid-19 🍻😄
It's great to have a ray of light. Cross everything...even the street to avoid other people.
Thanks for the update, good to know that most hotel chains have relaxed their cancellation policies too should you have booked a non flexible rate as RMF was the one definite fixture in your calendar. Great line up this year and outstanding representation from USA. Let's stay safe and hope for the best. Seen a lot of the lineup separately over the years but all in one place would be awesome.
Great statement and totally understand. Hope it goes ahead with whatever line up you can manage
Excellent post to inform and reassure everyone. I sincerely hope it still goes ahead as it’s the weekend I look forward to every year and I’ve attended them all. Anyway Jaime Jiménez Fleitas of Red Beard and I intend to have many beers together. Cheers, stay safe, for now stay home and keep smiling, Ramble on (at home!)🍺🤘🏻🎸🍺🍺😷
here we come
Fingers crossed it will go ahead but better to be safe than sorry.
Many thanks RMF for the update and your continued planning . It gives us a hope that we will all be together again come July and what a party it will be if it goes ahead 🤘🤘
Best news this week. And thank you for your detailed info. If your looking at more British acts. Please give calls to Big Boy Bloater and Nine Below Zero. Just to name a couple. 🤞all goes with the best scenario. We all need something positive to look forward to and RMF is the best 🎸🎼🍺
Great news hope everyone stays safe and we can have a massive celebration in July. I'm sure this year (if it goes ahead) will be massive and we can all pay our respects to those affected during these past few months. Ramblin man we salute you 🤘🍺🤘
Since my download plans have been foiled, if you guys are still on I'll probably book up a ticket closer to the time
I think it’s a sensible balanced approach given the unfolding situation . Whatever happens I know you will take the appropriate decision and I’m sure we will all applaud you for it . Keep safe
I am praying to Odin that this goes ahead. The one event if cancelled could break me. This will be the tonic for months of gig withdrawals
