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.

In a statement promoter Vince Power said: “After reviewing the ticket sales on Hop Farm and the predicted final figures the festival would suffer unsustainable losses so therefore, as from today, it is with great sadness I am announcing the cancelation of the festival.

“I would like to say that this has no reflection on the artists but with around 2,000 ticket sold it is highlighting the poor state of the economy. At the selling rate the prediction today would be 4,500 sold.

“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.
