220406Neil_Young.jpgHave you heard of Vince Power? Well, Vince is one of the UK’s biggest live music promoters and he’s set to return to the festival game this year with the first major non branded ‘back to basics’ event of its kind.
This festival looks to be pretty good as it’s based at the Hop Farm at the Kentish Oast Village in Paddock Wood, Tonbridge and is basically is devoid of any sponsorship. A Day at the Hop Farm will also be without any VIP areas, with the aim of being a festival for festivalgoers, returning live music to its roots, where you turn up with your ticket and enjoy the same experience as every other ticket holder! So who is on?

Vince Power was instrumental in the success of Reading, Leeds, Glastonbury, Homelands, Creamfields and Tribal Gathering festivals and venues such as the Astoria, The Forum and Jazz Cafe and also responsible for the reunion of the Sex Pistols. Power recently created one of Europe’s newest and most celebrated festivals – Benicassim in Spain, which is extremely popular with thousands of British festivalgoers who travel to Spain for the ‘Glasto del Sol’ experience each year.
The event will be headlined by the legendary Neil Young who will be joined by numerous acts throughout the day to create a day of world-class live music entertainment, less than an hour from the centre of London.
Vince Power says “This is my first festival in the UK in the last three years, and since then I have been enjoying great success with Benicassim in Spain. I am happy to be returning to create a new independent festival in a far more competitive marketplace, which counteracts the current brand saturated music scene – making the festival goers themselves the most important element of the event. My plan is to own and run more festivals across the UK and Europe in the future!”
Tickets are on sale now here.
