Ramblin' Man Fair have added more bands to the 2018 bill. This year the festival will move from its traditional end of July slot to 30th June and 1st July 2018.

Already announced are headliners Mott The Hoople and The Cult, plus Chas And Dave, Me And That Man, which is Nergal of Behemoth's side project with John Porter, Steve Earle & The Dukes, Blackberry Smoke and Sons Of Apollo who all play UK exclusive sets, as do Halestorm, who will make their first UK appearance since Lzzy Hale's induction into the Hall Of Heavy Metal History in January.

New acts added to the bill are Tyler Bryant & The Shakedown, The Last Internationale, Therapy?, Laurence Jones, The Adelaide's and Connor Selby with many more acts still to be announced.

Therapy?, who will play the Main Stage are one of the most enduring rock acts of the British rock music scene. Formed in 1989, the band have released twelve studio albums and sold over two million albums worldwide. The band are a fearsome live act and will sure to be a highlight of the main stage in 2018. Late 2017 saw the band release a double live acoustic record 'Communion: Live At The Union Chapel'. You can see what happened at that concert right here.

Tyler Bryant & The Shakedown, one of the biggest emerging young talents on the global rock music scene, also play the Main Stage. Based around the prodigious talents of Texan Tyler Bryant who was personally invited to play a blues festival by Eric Clapton while he was just 16, the band have toured with Jeff Beck, Aerosmith, BB King and AC/DC, as well as playing main support to Guns N' Roses on their 'Not In This Lifetime' tour. Tyler is currently on a headline tour of the USA throughout March, April and May 2018.
