The Ramble Festival describes itself as a “vibe-centric” event. Formed by best friends Jason “J” Hubert and Brandon “Brick” Lohr to fill a void for music lovers after the pandemic, the two consider themselves “music-loving” mothers who conceived The Ramble Festival. The fest, held at Camp Ramblewood in Harford County, Md., is a three-day affair that encourages attendees to camp out and experience more than just the music. (Camping passes are included with all weekend tickets.) Come for the music, stay for the rustic morning yoga.
There are three stages of music at the festival with up to 18 artists playing on any given day. Artists scheduled on this year’s lineup include The Del McCoury Band, The Motet, Perpetual Groove, and Magic Beans — bluegrass, indie rock, blues and country music thrive here. Following the headliner, each night of the festival carries into late night jams, where multiple artists gather around a campfire and play together with attendees. There is also a busking competition open to all. The best busker gets a place on the Moon Stage in 2024.
