The festival is also offering the first 10,000 customers even better value with a special weekend ticket price of just £150 which includes a 3 day ticket plus 4 days camping and parking!

Vince Power said: “I am really happy to announce the line-up for Hop Farm 2012. After last years success it’s my opinion that Hop Farm is now well and truly on the UK festival map. Furthermore we have tried to make it the best value festival ticket by having no hidden charges or added extras.”
