A STELLAR line-up is building for the rebooted Hop Farm Music Festival in July.
It was already known that Beach Boys legend Brian Wilson was bringing his good vibrations to the three day Paddock Wood festival from July 4 to 6, but now a handful of other sterling acts have been added.
On top of that 17-million album-selling singer and Twitter hero James Blunt is on the bill alongside award-winning chart-toppers The Feeling.
Dutch songstress Caro Emerald, whose second album The Shocking Miss Emerald went to number one last year, will also appear.
Also on the bill is singer songwriter Paul Carrack – known to some not only for his solo work but for his material with Mike and the Mechanics.
Rounding off the roll of recently announced names are south east London’s finest, Squeeze.
After the old Hop Farm Festival died - it ran for four years and featured the likes of Neil Young, Prince, Blondie , Bob Dylan and The Eagles – this year’s incarnation is entirely new and separate.
It promises exceptional food and hospitality which will make it unique and wants to put greater emphasis on a “fuller festival feeling”, having spent half a million pounds on the infrastructure needed to add a touch of glamour.
