Forsyth will be performing with his big band at the festival, which is taking place from 29 June to 1 July.
Having been in show business for eight decades, Forsyth will join festivals headliners Bob Dylan, Peter Gabriel and the New Blood Orchestra and Suede.
Festival owner and former Mean Fiddler boss, Vince Power, said: "I am honoured to have the legend that is Sir Bruce come down and make his debut appearance at the Hop Farm this year. Not only as he never appeared at a festival he’s never been to a festival. He has been in this business for over 70 years and is a true legend, he will be the talking point of the festival."
The three-day independent festival launched in 2008 and has a no sponsorship, no branding ethos.
