Hop farm music festival is a yearly event which is held on Friday the 1st & Saturday 2nd of July. It is held in Kent. I have chosen to write about this festival because it isn’t well know but it has some very good music this year. There is a fairground, campsite, food stalls, facilities and of course music! Under 12’s get in for free. For the whole weekend adults pay £130 (this does not include camping) or £70 a day. For the whole weekend camping prices are £30 or £25 a day per head. If you are hoping to bring you’re camper-van they are permitted! To bring you’re camper-van it is £35 per day but this is per van not per head. There is a maximum of 4 people per van.
Disabled tickets are also available. They are £35 per day or £65 for the whole weekend. Disabled camping passes are £12.50 per day or £15 for whole weekend. All disabled tickets will accommodate two including carers.
There is also a coach trip running to the festival. It is run by “Big Green Coach” and will be leaving from London Kings cross, London Waterloo road and Brighton. For the whole weekend this is £184 per person or £94 per day. Once you arrive at the festival you have to go and get a wristband. You will not be permitted anywhere without your wristband and if it is damaged or broken you have to buy new tickets so take care of it!
