Artist News Festival Line-Up Update Gigs & Festivals

Hop Farm Music Festival

So, the big-name festival shoving all other festivals aside in the FLUU stakes today is Vince Power’s back-from-the-brink Hop Farm extravaganza, whose initial billing features My Bloody Valentine, ‘Sugar Man’ Rodriguez, The Horrors, Martha Wainwright, The Cribs, First Aid Kit and many, many others besides.

Trailing in its wake, but only slightly, is this year’s Download and another late addition to its artist cache. Black Stone Cherry, Satyricon, CTHONIC And The Oriental Orchestra and Rival Sons join headlining titans Slipknot, Iron Maiden and Rammstein.

And with that, it’s straight on to extra add-ons at the above festivals, and the following:
