Suede, Peter Gabriel and other big names in music are reportedly owed thousands of pounds by a Kent music festival that went into liquidation.

According to the Kent on Sunday newspaper, Hop Farm Festival headliner Peter Gabriel is listed as being owed £100,000 and Suede £46,000.

Other acts who were listed as still requiring payment at the time that the event went into administration included Sir Bruce Forsyth - who is owed £9,000 - Damien Rice, Billy Ocean, Primal Scream and Richard Ashcroft.

Last year the festival, which is run by Music Festivals PLC, collapsed owing £4.6 million.

Vince Power, the music promoter behind the festival, has vowed that Hop Farm will return this year. However, the acts have yet to be announced.

Earlier this year, Power said: "It was always my intention to do the Hop Farm, I have the rights to do the Hop Farm and the Hop Farm will take place from July 5 to 7, 2013.

"At the moment, we have sold a small amount of early bird tickets and we are confirming acts. We hope to announce the bill very shortly."
