Laura Marling and Everest added to the most anticipated festival of the summer

The final two acts have been announced for Vince Power’s sizzling hot Summer bonanza, The Hop Farm Festival.

Laura Marling whose critically acclaimed debut album ‘Alas I Cannot Swim’ released on Virgin Records received a rapturous response, has exploded onto the scene from her humble Berkshire beginnings. ‘Alas I Cannot Swim’ marks the arrival of a major talent brave enough to swim against the commercial tide’, NME.

Having won over a legion of fans, Laura completed nine tours last year, including three headline tours, opening for Adam Green, Jamie T, Rufus Wainwright and Devendra Banhart and a string of summer festival appearances, Glastonbury included. A breathtaking appearance on ‘Later…’ led even Jools Holland to whisper to Marling that her performance was ‘absolutely amazing’.

Described as ‘A precious, timeless artist’ by The Independent, Hop Farm brings you the opportunity to experience Laura Marling’s charm for yourself this summer.

Popular Los Angeles based indie outfit, Everest, abandon the glam and glitz of Hollywood to trek across the pond showcasing their formidable live set and tunes at this year’s Hop Farm Festival. Already stacking up rave reviews for their debut album, Ghost Notes, the boys from the West Coast look set to bring their unique brand of retro-esque melodies to the UK masses.

The band may be new but these guys have been kicking around the L.A indie scene for years, coming from a diverse array of bands like Sebadoh to Folk Implosion to The Watson Twins. They have finally come together to kick start a brand new era and to resurrect the sounds from the past.
The Hop Farm Festival is Vince Power’s landmark return to the competitive festival marketplace, once again demonstrating his ongoing creativity that earned him the media-given title of ‘Godfather of Gigs’. This festival is set to become the most musically focused event of its kind in the UK this year.

With legendary headline act Neil Young appearing with Primal Scream, Supergrass, My Morning Jacket, Rufus Wainwright and Guillemots. The Hop Farm Festival’s newest acts will further underline the rise and importance of the new prestigious Vince Power Music Group, which devised Europe’s most exciting festival Benicassim in Spain – the continents ‘Glasto del Sol’ experience.

Vince Power says of these latest editions “We are extremely pleased by the quality of this significant line up and are proud and excited to bring this very unique event to our audience.”
