This gig just gets better and better. Paul Weller and now Bob Dylan. In Paddock Wood?
In Kent? AMAAAZING. You just cannot get any better.
The line-up at the picturesque Hop Farm screams glam and I hope I am lucky enough to attend this year as last and report back to you lucky guys. In fact, fingers crossed for beautiful weather.
The gem of a line-up consists of:

FRIDAY: Main stage headliner is the legendary van Morrison...who will be joined by none other than Blondie, Los Lobos, Imedla May, Damien Dempsey AND there are more acts yet to come. Blimey, us Kentish bunch are being spoilt this year.
2nd stage: he brilliant Afro Celt Sound System, Richard Thompson, Peter Green & Friends, and Sweet Billy Pilgrim.

SATURDAY: Main Stage CRACKING line-up that includes a UK exclusive from Bob Dylan, Ray Davies, Mumford & Sons, Seasick Steve, Peter Doherty, Laura Marling, The Magic Numbers, Foy Vance will now be joined by Johnny Flynn.
2nd Stage includes performances by Devendra Banhart, Jim Jones Revue, Tunng, Pete Molinari and Jon Allen with more cool acts to come

Organiser for, I believe, the third year Vince Power, said: “It’s fantastic that we continue to see such a positive response from Hop Farm Festival fans. With the latest additions to the bill plus 2nd stage and a 3rd to be announced soon, there’ll be something for everyone. I know it will be a weekend to remember”.

You know, the best thing about this festival is the NO BRANDING, NO SPONSORSHIP message. That's awesome and it makes sense. Massive thumbs up to Vince Power. It has so much to offer ppl who fancy a day out locally and let's face it, more than just music. The food is also amazing, the fun fair is so retro and clearly something to enjoy being you glug down 6 Pear Ciders...although I am sure there will be many who will not heed this advice and get messy...

Comedy, football, boutique camping (tres chic) local food and drink (ale, yummy) suppliers. Brilliant.
Tickets are now on sale with Friday Day tickets at £45 & Saturday Day tickets at £65.A 2 day ticket is also available for £110, with the option of a 2-Night camping ticket for £25.
