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…
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!
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
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!
Enough said really…
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!
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
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…
British Sea Power
Benjamin Francis Leftwich
I Am Kloot
Three Blind Wolves
The Ryan O’Reilly Band
And of course….(Sir) Gary Numan
