Devin Townsend Project Announced As New Ramblin’ Man 2017 Headliner

June 12, 2017

We are well and truly on the road to Ramblin’ Man 2017 – and the festival has just announced a new headliner. Following a storming set at Download Festival this past weekend, Devin Townsend Project has been officially confirmed as the headliner for the Prog In The Park Stage on Sunday, 30 July.

This latest addition to Ramblin’ Man 2017 joins an illustrious Prog In The Park Sunday line-up that includes Magnum, Focus, and ex-Wishbone Ash bassist and vocalist Martin Turner, and bolsters what looks set to be another landmark Ramblin’ Man event. uDiscover caught up with Townsend at last year’s event and this is what he had to say:


With the likes of Saxon, Extreme, ZZ Top and Glenn Hughes also descending upon Mote Park across 28-30 July, “ramblers” old and new will be treated to the biggest Ramblin’ Man since it launched two years ago. And, like last year, uDiscover will be on hand to cover the event as it happens.

Along with wall-to-wall rock, country, prog and blues across its Planet Rock, Grooverider, Prog In The Park, Outlaw Country, Blues and Rising stages, Ramblin’ Man 2017 also boasts an array of sideshows, including, for the first time ever, a Civil War re-enactment. A real ale tent, marketplace, Wall Of Death, Clayzer shoot and Lagua Motorcycles stand will also help make Ramblin’ Man 2017 a unique experience.
