Hop Farm 2013 Cancelled

Organisers have cancelled this year’s Hop Farm festival. It is believed that the festival had to be cancelled due to poor ticket sales. Patrons who have already purchased their tickets are set to receive a full refund. Vince Power, the organiser of the festival issued the following statement “We have worked very hard to try to make it work but it has proved too much of a mountain to climb and despite fighting hard, circumstances are such that based on poor ticket sales and the forecast selling rate substantial losses would be made. It is a surprise for us that after 8 weeks of heavy marketing and with such a great bill that we have to cancel, though we are convinced this does not reflect on the artists, it highlights the poor economic climate. We would like to thank all the staff, suppliers and contractors that have also worked very hard to try and put the festival on again this year.”

Jeff Hanneman: 31st January 1963 – 2nd May 2013

Hanneman was in an area hospital when he suffered liver failure. He is survived by his wife Kathy, his sister Kathy and his brothers Michael and Larry, and will be sorely missed.
