The 'Hotel California' band top the bill on Friday July 1 and are supported by Bryan Ferry, Brandon Flowers, Death Cab For Cutie and 10cc. Further musicians and comedians over four stages will be announced shortly.
Organiser Vince Power said: "Really happy to start to announce Hop Farm's line-up, now in its 4th year.
"After last year's success with Bob Dylan and Mumford and Sons to name but a few of the huge acts, it’s my opinion that the Hop Farm is well and truly on the UK festival map and will go from strength to strength as one of the few independent festivals left in the country."
Acts for Saturday, July 2 at the festival, which takes place at Hop Farm, Paddock Wood, Kent, have yet to be announced.
Tickets are available now priced at £120 for the weekend or £70 per day. Camping is priced at £30 for the weekend or £25 per day. Children under 12 are admitted free.
