Well what can we say, we're so very sad to hear the news that Lou Reed
has passed away. He formed one of our greatest line ups in 2011 and was a true gent to work with and have with us that year. You will be missed by so many Mr Reed....R.I.P.
Hello Hop Farmers, well it's been a while, but we have released the following statement today:
Vince Power’s Hop Farm Music Festival is set to return to Kent in 2014, at a new site in Tunbridge Wells. Having used the Hop Farm Family Park to stage 5 Hop Farm Festivals Vince Power has secured a new site in Tunbridge Wells for the 2014 event. Details will be announced in the near future.
Reports suggest that another festival is to be hosted on The Hop Farm Family Park site, called the Hop Farm Music Festival, but this event has no association with the well-established Hop Farm Music Festival. This is an unfamiliar event organised by an entirely different promoter and team. Despite the naming of this event it is not in any way connected with the esteemed Hop Farm Music Festival.
The Hop Farm Music Festival is an established brand having booked some of the world's biggest artists and priding itself on the best line ups seen in recent years. It has hosted unforgettable performances from the likes of Prince, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Mumford and Sons, Florence and the Machine, Eagles, Primal Scream, Patti Smith, Manu Chao and many more.
The Hop Farm Music Festival 2014 will retain its traditional ethos of No Sponsorship and No Branding and will remain a ‘music festival’ in the truest sense of the title.
Vince Power commented – ‘I have been building the Hop Farm for 6 years now, unfortunately due to the economic climate we had to cancel last year, but the festival is not over. We have a strong brand in the festival market, an instantly recognisable festival and you can’t keep a good festival down.’
Dear Hop Farmers,
It’s with great regret that we have to announce the cancellation of the Hop Farm Music Festival 2013.
We have worked very hard to try to make it work but it has proved too much a of mountain to climb and despite fighting hard, circumstances are such that based on poor ticket sales and the forecast selling rate substantial losses would be made.
We would like to thank all the staff, suppliers and contractors that have also worked very hard to try and put the festival on again this year.
We have to thank the artists and agents that have supported us over the years and for this year’s acts to know that it has been a very hard decision to make, and we are very sorry that we are not able to have them play.
We would also thank the fans that have supported us over the past 5 years, it is with great sadness that the decision was made.
Ticket holders will receive a full refund from their ticket agents.
On Tuesday we asked you.... Where was Rodriguez born?
The correct answer was B: Detroit,
Congratulations to everyone who answered the question correctly!
