Preview: Hop Farm Festival

By on Tuesday, 19th May 2009 at 2:00 pm

The FratellisNow in its second year, The Hop Farm Festival has announced another strong lineup. After last year’s scoop of getting Neil Young to headline, I had a feeling it’d be a one time event, however it turns out that this year they’re back bigger and stronger, now a two day event on Saturday July 4th and Sunday July 5th. This year the event is headlined by The Fratellis (pictured right) and Pigeon Detectives on the Saturday night whilst Paul Weller headlines the Sunday.

Billed as the only major UK festival to be sponsorship free and without VIP areas, the event joins the long list of events that attempts to provide a higher quality experience than the usual “big names, small facilities” approach of some festivals, and this year builds upon its successful first year to come back bigger and stronger for 2009.

Joining the headliners are a raft of great bands that are doing the rounds of the festivals this summer – Florence and the Machine, Noah and the Whale, The Joy Formidable, Ladyhawke, Doves and Editors all playing across the weekend.

This year, Hop Farm adds a dance tent to join the ranks of their competitors, featuring Etienne De Crecy on Saturday night. Widely celebrated for his groundbreaking ‘French Touch’ sound, he will be sure to whip the crowd up into a euphoric frenzy to close the night, whilst 2ManyDJs are heading up the Sunday night set, bringing the dance stage to a euphoric finale.

Weekend tickets are £125.00 incl. camping and parking and with day tickets at £65.00, and are available now from Ticketmaster and See Tickets.
