Peter Gabriel, Suede, Damien Rice and Primal Scream also announced
This year's Hop Farm festival has again attracted huge acts to the fifth annual no branding, no sponsorship festival running from June 29th to July 1st.
Folk legend Bob Dylan will be returning to the Kent countryside based festival for the first time since 2010 and he is joined by Genesis icon Peter Gabriel, playing with the New Blood Orchestra.
Alt rock band Suede, Damien Rice and Primal Scream are among a stellar line-up for the fans come first event produced by Festival Republic founder Vince Power.
The festival now in it's fifth year was started with the sole aim of making the fans once again the number one part of the festival going experience, something organisers feel behemoths such as Glastonbury and T in the Park have forgotten.
This refreshing approach to the event has helped attract huge names to perform including last years headliners Prince, Morrissey and The Eagles.
Festival goers are promised no corporate sponsorship, no surprise ticket costs and no booking fee as the festival aims to become a mainstay of the UK festival scene.
Tickets go on sale tomorrow (Wed 28 Mar) at 9am and can only be purchased from eventim.co.uk. Full weekend tickets are priced at £150 for the three-day, four-night event.
