The UK’s longest running small festival celebrates its 21st birthday this July with Peace, Friendly Fires, George Ezra and Courteeners all at the top of the bill.
Taking place from 19th-22nd July, Truck prides itself as the “anti-major” festival and welcomes back former Supergrass front man and Oxfordshire’s very own Gaz Coombes as well as Jake Bugg, Editors, Everything Everything and De La Soul.
Festival Organiser Matt Harrap said: “We're extremely excited to announce our first wave of artists for this year’s show! Having artists of the calibre of George Ezra and Friendly Fires coming to headline the event after many years of asking is truly humbling and their sets will no doubt live long in the memory.
Returning heroes Peace will be the perfect way to kick off the festival with our first ever Thursday headliners. Personally I'm really thrilled to have the legend that is Gaz Coombes back at his favourite festival for the first time since 2013.”
The line up also champions emerging artists including XS favourites The Sherlocks, Pale Waves, Marika Hackman and The Amazons amongst many others.
