Maximo Park have been added to the line-up for The Hop Farm Music Festival 2014.

They join headliner Brian Wilson of The Beach Boys on the bill for the festival, which takes place July 4-6, on The Hop Farm Family Park site in Kent. Tickets for the event are available now. For more information visit thehopfarmmusicfestival.com.

Joining Maximo Park on the latest raft of additions to The Hop Farm Music Festival 2014 are The Family Rain, Bellowhead, Eliza Doolittle, Marc Almond, Full English, Chas n Dave, Scouting For Girls, Slow Club, The Beat and Midlake.

Confusingly, two festivals will be put on under the Hop Farm Music Festival name this summer. Vince Power's festival of the same name will also run, but on a new site in Tunbridge Wells, following an announcement made on the festival's Facebook page.

Last year Power's festival released a statement which read: "Reports suggest that another festival is to be hosted on The Hop Farm Family Park site, called the Hop Farm Music Festival, but this event has no association with the well-established Hop Farm Music Festival. This is an unfamiliar event organised by an entirely different promoter and team. Despite the naming of this event it is not in any way connected with the esteemed Hop Farm Music Festival."

The original Hop Farm Music Festival has not yet announced its 2014 dates. Promoter Vince Power said of the event's return: "I have been building the Hop Farm for six years now, unfortunately due to the economic climate we had to cancel last year, but the festival is not over. We have a strong brand in the festival market, an instantly recognisable festival and you can't keep a good festival down."

2013's Hop Farm Festival was cancelled, with organisers blaming poor ticket sales and the economy. My Bloody Valentine and Rodriguez were due to headline the festival with The Horrors, The Cribs and Dinosaur Jr also set to perform.
