[dropcap style=”font-size:100px; color:#992211;”]F[/dropcap]inally Cambridge gets a helping hand.
Finding a UK festival catering to the more discerning rock palate wasn’t tough – one name stood out – but things have been looking lean in July for those whose tastes err towards proper ale and considered solos. With a lineup shaping nicely, Ramblin’ Man Fair offers a chewy feast of classic rock, blues, country and prog.
Because, face it, you end up at the wrong festival this summer and it’ll be wall-to-wall Meghan Trainor. And if you really wanted to spend your time getting shouted at by a Vanessa Feltz karaoke clone you’d just bring a bottle of Advocaat to your aunty Cath’s. (Which we do recommend, just not on Ramblin’ Man weekend).
