A Nuanced Masterpiece
A weekend spent in superb company with great established rock acts and new bands coming through
“We’re trying to find… capture that feeling. Maybe that’s what makes it seem authentic”
The Clash drummer Topper Headon who described the band as “F****** brilliant!”.
Visually stunning and musically brilliant, Thunder are one of the best rock acts performing live today.
The show delivered a stunning politically charged performance with a set that looked back at Pink Floyd’s back catalogue along with material from Waters’ latest solo album.

Closing the Ramblin’ Man Fair for 2018 were the Cult, who ironically turned out to be the surprise of the day for many.
This evening flew by in a haze of metal, beer and more metal.
