Hop Farm is no more

Hope Farm Festival

Sad news. This year’s Hop Farm festival has been cancelled due to poor sales and poor projected sales.

Due to take place at the beginning of July with headliners My Bloody Valentine, The Horrors, Rodriguez and Jimmy Cliff, the festival had been an essential event for Kent music fans since 2008.

Despite reducing capacity this year, and the number of days it was to be up and running, it failed to attract the punters.

Festival Organiser Vince Power has apologised in an open letter.

He wrote:

“We would thank the fans that have supported us over the past five years and it with great sadness that the decision was made.”

All ticket holders will receive a full refund from their ticket agent.
