With this being the first night just one of the two stages was open, allowing the ever growing crowd to stay warm and cosy inside enjoying the music and the beer.
The Ramblin’ Man Fair was the definitive highlight of my musical year in 2015 and with this year’s event seeing the addition of an extra stage, meaning even more excellent bands on the bill
What a difference a day makes. So sang Renee Olstead in the classic song from yesteryear. The day before the inaugural Ramblin Man Fair, the heavens opened and it looked like it could all be a washout. Then, it’s rumoured, Klaus Meine steps forward, has a word with the powers that be, pointing out that Scorpions “don’t do rain” and the day they headline is an absolute dream. Hot sunny weather, the middle of a beautiful country park in the heart of Kent (The Garden of England), real ale on draught (Iron Maiden’s Trooper Ale), a real ale tent and 3 stages containing the best that Classic Rock, Progressive Rock and Outlaw Country music have to offer.
