Festivals: TFFT’s Hop Farm Festival Recommendations

Hop Farm Festival kicks off tomorrow down in Kent, and as part of our TFFT Festival Recommendations, we’ve put together a short, but well thought-over list of our favourite and most recommended acts of the weekend…

Bob Dylan

He may be old, croaky, and pretty awful live, but he is the king of all things brilliant. And more importantly, nobody knows exactly when he might just drop down dead…so best get to see him one last time before he calls it a day!

The Levellers

Their recent release and 10th album to date, Static On The Airwaves, is one of their finest yet. Moreover, you never have a dull moment with these folk-punk masters

My Morning Jacket

Yim Yames and co. never fail to give a wonderful performance. Not a fan of Suede? Then this lot are a safe bet to bring the Festival to a hearty close on the Sunday night

Frightened Rabbit

They’ve been away for a while, but with a new record and live dates on the horizon, any excuse to see Frightened Rabbit is a good one…unless you’re a fan of Suede…

The Tallest Man On Earth

So his new album might be average to say the least, but Kristian Matsson is an amazing talent and always gives an outstanding performance…as long as he keeps it light and fun, unlike the album, then you’re onto a winner!

Patti Smith

Enough said really…

Indigo Earth

TFFT favourites Indigo Earth are playing the Powers Bar Stage…we’re not sure which day yet, but if we advise you find out asap and make sure you’re there…a band for the future…and our November TFFT Live Night!

Like Spinning

Another act set to grace our TFFT Live stage with their presence, Like Spinning are sure to fill you with warmth, alongside those 4 or 5 ciders, as they perform their Norwegian-influenced dark folk

Lianne La Havas, Rae Morris, Lucy Rose

3 top-quality songstresses, all good mates, all ridiculously talented…each play their separate sets across the 3 days

Bellowhead

You’re always guaranteed a bloody good time with the Bellowhead…you might get cramp from dancing too much, but a couple of drinks will see that off in no time!

And The Rest…

Dan Croll
Damien Rice
British Sea Power
Ray Davies
Marcus Foster
Benjamin Francis Leftwich
Jose Gonzales
Treetop Flyers
Slow Club
