Prince at Hop Farm Music Festival July 3rd

I’ve yet to attend a UK summer music festival, although I’ve heard about many fun ones.   That said, i’ve never before heard mention of Hop Farm in Kent.   It just happened to catch my attention because i noticed that Prince is performing on July 3rd.  If you haven’t ever seen Prince perform live, it is absolutely worth making the trek to Kent.

As for the rest of the concert the Wall Street Journal says “The Vibe: a blast-from-the-past blowout that proudly touts its stand against corporate sponsorship and branding but not against Dad-or even Grandad Rock.  The main stage lineup is nearly geriatric…

But can we at least call it  good geriatric?  The lineup includes: The Eagles, Lou Reed,  Chrissie Hynes and Brian Ferry and for those in my  bookgroup that are interested in seeing her live after reading “Just Kids”, Patti Smith.
