- May 3, 2013
The year’s festival season has suffered a set back as Hop Farm Festival 2013 is abandoned.
The Kent based event has had to withdraw due to poor ticket sales and an even worse sales forecast.
Hop Farm is well know for it’s ‘back to basics’ stance, proudly boasting no sponsors or branding adverts.
This is perhaps one of the reasons why the festival is being scrapped this term, as ticket sales are seemingly not enough.
Vince Power, promoter of the festival, said,
“It is a surprise for us that after 8 weeks of heavy marketing and with such a great bill that we have to cancel, though we are convinced this does not reflect on the artists, it highlights the poor economic climate.”
This year would have been the sixth Hop Farm Festival after previous shows with acts such as Bob Dylan and Damien Rice.
Ticket holders are to receive a full refund from their ticket agents and fans have been thanked for their continuing support.
