A brand new festival launches: Ramblin' Man Fair in pictures

In a summer calendar filled with festivals, Ramblin’ Man Fair is an addition close to our hearts. Organised by the Rock Collective, the main stage carries the Classic Rock logo, while our sister magazines Prog and The Blues have their own stages. The event featured the Scorpions’ only UK appearance of the year, plus exclusive shows from the likes of Gregg Allman, Camel and Marillion.

Early bird tickets for next year’s event are on sale now.
