Managed to get to the Ramblin' Man Festival at Maidstone in Kent yesterday and see the chaps play. An excellent afternoon.

The site was excellent - Mote Park is a gently sloping site near the town centre with ample parking, a good surface and plenty of shade (and the loos were fine). The stages were brilliant - the main stage was *huge* and there were no less than 4 others (tho' we never did find the acoustic one). Sound quality was excellent. Being a Sunday and the day after Whitesnake, Europe, Thin Lizzy, Uriah Heap, Family and the Zombies headlined, it wasn't rammed to the rafters - there was plenty of space to mill about.

We cherry picked a few bands out of the line-up: Van Hertzen Bros were good, Headspace excellent, Walter Trout reliably excellent.

The band came on to the second (Prog in the Park) stage at around 6.15 (with Tim guesting) and played a barnstorming set of a mix of old favourites and new rockier tracks, and they went down a storm. Plenty of fans loved it, and lots of new fans discovered the band.

After they finished, there was still Thunder and Black Stone Cherry on the main and Procul Harum on the prog stages. Getting out was easy - no massive rushes, no quagmires of sucking mud. A good event, worth popping along to if you get the chance.
