10cc will play all the hits when they visit the Hop Farm Festival at Paddock Wood this summer 2014

14 May 2014

All the classic 10cc hits from The Things We Do For Love to Donna will be crowd pleasing-singalongs when the popular band perform at the Hop Farm Music Festival this summer.

Songwriter Graham Gouldman, who has recently toured alone, will reunite with Rick Fenn (guitar, bass and vocals), Mick Wilson (vocals, percussion and guitar), Mike Stevens (keyboards guitar, bass and vocals) and Paul Burgess (drums) for the July festival at the Hop Farm, Paddock Wood.

"People will obviously want to hear the old songs," Graham told What's On. "I'm Not In Love always brings a special feeling from the audience. I still love playing the older hits."

Festival-goers will also be treated to newer acts such as Caro Emerald, The Noisettes, Eliza Doolittle, but longstanding people's favourites such as 10cc, Brian Wilson, and Ray Davies are expected to appeal to the diverse crowd of revellers that the Hop Farm draws from all corners of Kent and further afield.
