Bob Dylan, Peter Gabriel and Suede are among the artists who will perform at this year's Hop Farm festival in Kent.

The three acts will not perform at any other UK festival this year, according to organisers.

Other artists announced include Damien Rice, Primal Scream, Patti Smith, The Stranglers and Billy Ocean.

The three-day event, which takes place at Paddock Wood between 29 June and 1 July, will feature four music stages and a comedy stage.

Gabriel will perform with the New Blood Orchestra.

Hop Farm is one of the newest on the circuit, with the first one taking place in 2008. Prince played last year's event, making his first ever UK festival appearance.

Organiser Vince Power said: "After last year's success, it's my opinion that Hop Farm is now well and truly on the UK festival map."

Dylan will also headline this summer's Benicassim festival in Spain, which runs from 12-15 July.

The Benicassim festival line-up also includes British artists including The Stone Roses, Florence and the Machine and Jessie J.
