It’s with deep regret that we have to announce our withdrawal from this year’s Steelhouse Festival in Wales on July 25th. Unfortunately, the travel restrictions in place for overseas personnel have made it impossible for us to get the band, crew and equipment into the UK for this show. We left it until the last possible minute in case there were any changes to the procedures but sadly nothing has been forthcoming. We will be back up the mountain as soon as we can though and, in the meantime, enjoy this year’s event and the bill the promoters have worked so hard to put together. Again, we are very sorry for this news and to all who were travelling to the festival to see us. Our Friends in will now headline the Sunday night. //Europe

We are very sorry for inform you that this year’s Ramblin’ Man Fair in UK where EUROPE were to headline on July 17th has been cancelled. Here below is the Promoters Press Release. /Europe
With great regret Ramblin’ Man Fair 2021 will not happen.
We thank everyone for their patience while we held our line until the last possible moment to make an informed decision.
The reasons are many but all – unsurprisingly – are linked to the on going Covid related complications that challenge events in the early summer of this year, whether its the lack of government backed insurance scheme, no support from government funds that we applied for, ongoing travel restrictions on major artists, increased costs for crowd safety and potential testing – the list goes on.
Ramblin’ Man would like to thank all the bands who did put themselves forward and we know that they all share our regret and frustration at the situation.
We would also like to thank the Event team at Maidstone council and Mote Park for their patience and understanding through this difficult time. But most of all RMF would like to thank the loyal ticket holders who make the event as special as it is.
Refunds can be accessed via point of purchase on Eventbrite.co.uk and details of potential rollover and dates for 2022 will be released in due course.
