Bruce Forsyth to play Hop Farm Festival
Strictly Come Camping for entertainment legend
Rebecca Laurence - 13 April 2012
There have been some pretty exciting festival announcements this year. But you can take all your Roses,
Sabbath, Refused, ATDI and The Cure news and shove them
to one side. Because this is the line-up addition that blows them all out of the water.
None other than the nation's favourite octogenarian entertainment legend, song and dance man, King of the Catchphrases, and all round National Treasure, (drum roll) the one and only….Sir Bruce Forsyth is set, along with his big band, to play Hop Farm 2012.
The Kent festival organiser, Vince Power said: "I am honoured to have the legend that is Sir Bruce come down and make his debut appearance at the Hop Farm this year. Not only as he never appeared at a festival he’s never been to a festival. He has been in this business for over 70 years and is a true, true legend, he will be the talking point of the festival."
Sir Brucie joins a formidable list of old codgers musical legends at Hop Farm 2012, including Bob Dylan (a UK festival exclusive), Peter Gabriel, Suede and Primal Scream. Also already announced are: Damien Rice, My Morning Jacket, Maximo Park, Patti Smith and Friends, The Stranglers, Joan Armatrading, Billy Ocean, Dr John and the Lower 911 and The Psychedelic Furs.
