Preview: Hop Farm Festival 2010

“Paddock Wood is a small town and civil parish in the Borough of Tunbridge Wells and ceremonial county of Kent in England, about 8 miles (13 km) south west of Maidstone.”. Hey, thank you, Wikipedia.

On Saturday, July 3rd, 2010, said Paddock Wood won’t be just any old “small town”, though, oh no! The Kent village will be magically transformed into music fan’s wonderland, as it welcomes the absolute, down right legend that is Bob Dylan, who will be flying in to headline the fantastical festival that is Hop Farm.

The American singer-songwriter will be leading the likes of Mumford and Sons, Seasick Steve, Peter Doherty and Laura Marling on that glorious summers day, when the top of the crop in finger picking descend onto Kent in order to kick start this incredible show. More acts are yet to be announced, so brace yourself for more brilliance in the coming weeks.

Undoubtedly one of the greatest festivals going, musically and morally, Hop Farm says no to sponsors, branding, VIPs – taking the festival experience back it’s good old roots. (So you know, no Pixie get-a-job Geldof’s prancing around backstage being ‘papped’ by The Sun and all).

Tickets for Hop Farm are a mere £65, with an additional £25 for camping, and can be purchased at See.
