THE REVAMPED Hop Farm Music Festival has announced another raft of top names to ensure its comeback is a success.
With a whole new team behind it, the three-day festival in Paddock Wood from July 4 to 6 has added Mercury-nominated band Maximo Park, platinum selling songwriter Eliza Doolittle, Soft Cell’s Marc Almond, legends Chas n Dave and chart stormers Scouting for Girls.
The new names are on top of a bill that already includes Beach Boy Brian Wilson, James Blunt, Caro Emerald and Squeeze.
Also added are 11-piece folk group Bellowhead, Full English, Slow Club, Family Rain, The Beat and Midlake.
The Hop Farm Festival proved popular in its previous incarnation – with headliners including Prince, The Eagles and Bob Dylan – but was cancelled last year and ceased to exist.
It has been reborn as an all-new festival with a new promoter, production and marketing team and promises great food and hospitality to match its music.
More acts will be announced in the coming weeks and you can check out all of the info at thehopfarmmusicfestival.com
