Hawkwind (Grooverider Stage, Headliner) – Ramblin’ Man Fair welcome one of the true legends of global rock music for a special 50thAnniversary Show.
Formed in 1969, Hawkwind have undergone a variety of line-ups and straddled multiple genres, and gone on to become one of the most influential British groups of all time. They have inspired bands such as Monster Magnet, Kyuss, My Bloody Valentine, Sex Pistols, Jello Biafra and many more – famously, the band also introduced the music world to Lemmy Kilminster who has gone on to say “In Hawkwind I became a good bass player. It was where I learned I was good at something.”
Iconic records ‘In Search of Space’, ‘Doremi Fasol Latido’, ‘Space Ritual’, ‘In the Hall of the Mountain Grill’, and ‘Strangeness and Charm’ are now timeless pieces of psychedelic heaviosity that have propelled Hawkwind into the charts across the world. Founder member Dave Brock will bring Hawkwind to Ramblin’ Man Fair 2020 for a special 50th Anniversary Show.
Monster Truck (Friday Mainstage, Special Guests) – Monster Truck are one of the best loved new rock acts. The Canadian fourpiece, formed in 2009, have become a highlight of live stages across the years with their perfect blend of riffs and rock n roll. The bands last studio album, “True Rockers”, was released in late 2018 and featured an awesome cameo from Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider on lead single “True Rocker”.
