Legendary British rockers UFO will make their Ramblin’ Man Fair debut this summer after the iconic band was added to this summer’s main stage line-up. UFO will be joined by Toseland, Scorpion Child, Stone Broken and Caitlin Koch as an increasingly eclectic bill takes shape.
UFO will appear as the special guests of ZZ Top on Sunday July 30. Formed in London in 1969, the band influenced many of the biggest names in rock and metal including Metallica and Iron Maiden.
UFO’s 22nd album, A Conspiracy Of Stars, was released in February 2015, to critical acclaim and looks set to feature alongside a raft of classics spanning six decades.
Toseland – fronted by former superbikes star James Toseland – released their debut album Renegade in 2014 and have supported Status Quo, Reef and The Darkness as well as playing storming sets at Download and Hard Rock Calling.
2016 saw the band release follow-up Cradle The Rage – produced by Toby Jepson (Little Angels) and mixed by Mike Fraser (AC/DC).
Scorpion Child look to bands like Led Zeppelin, Uriah Heep, Rainbow and Black Sabbath as inspiration for their heavy blues rock sound. The hard-hitting Austin, Texas-based quintet mix classic rock, old school heavy metal and Southwest-kissed psych-rock.
UK rising stars Stone Broken and Nashville-based Caitlin Koch join previously announced acts including Extreme, Rival Sons, Saxon and more.
