it's the fans that make or break bands

Hop-farm Festival bounces back from administration to announce 2013 line-up.


The festival which has previously hosted such names as The Eagles, Prince and Bob Dylan has had to announce cuts, reducing the capacity that had been previously been as high as 50,000 to 10,000 ,after going into administration. The festival struggled last year due to the London Olympics and poor weather alongside the continuing economic crisis.

Despite a rumoured 4.8 million loss the festival has returned with a cracking, albeit slimmed down, line-up with this year’s event being headlined by American folk legend Rodríguez and Alt-Rock veterans My Bloody Valentine (playing an exclusive festival slot for the UK).

The festival which pioneered a ‘branding and sponsorship free’ ethos also announced a genre/age spanning line-up that includes: The Cribs, The Horrors , Dinosaur Jr, Jimmy Cliff, Dry the River, The Staves and Toy to name but a few- across 3 main stages over 2 days through the weekend of the  5th and 6th of July.

Set in the lovely Kent countryside, roughly an hour from the centre of London, the festival will also showcase ‘The Shindig stage’ in the Campsite alongside the ‘Buskers Boulevard’ with new features The Campsite Choir, Marching Bands, Fun Fair and a Childrens’ Area all being added to the event.
