Hop Farm Festival has been given the go ahead to increase the capacity from 30,000 to 53,000 for this year's event.

At an appeal at a magistrates court this week the plans for the new premises licence, to increase the capacity of the festival, were approved. This year as well as an increased capacity the festival organisers are also set to add more stages, and have 20,000 camping available from the Thursday until Monday.

The details of the line-up and the onsite activities is expected to be released shortly. The Hop Farm Festival which is due to run from held at the Hop Farm Country Park, Kent for three days from Friday 3rd until Sunday 5th July is run by Vince Power, who founded Mean Fiddler (now Festival Republic) before selling it to Live Nation and MCD.

The festival was held as a one day festival last year with one stage and headlined by Neil Young. The day before the site was used by The Mighty Boosh Festival, also run by Power.

The Hop Farm Festival was a return to the UK festival scene last year by Power, who has come to the end of his non-compete clause in the UK which began when he sold his part of the Mean Fiddler Group. Power also holds a stake in the Spanish summer festival, Benicassim.
