Hop Farm Festival cancelled

Hop Farm Festival has been cancelled.

The festival was due to take place over the weekend of July 5 - 6 at Paddock Wood, Tonbridge, Kent.

“Thank you for your support this year, it has been a very hard decision.”

Among the bands who had been scheduled to play this year were Bloody Valentine, Rodriguez, The Horrors, Jimmy Cliff, The Cribs and Dinosaur Jr.
