Truck On
The first batch of bands have been confirmed for the Truck Festival this weekend. For those of you that don't know, Truck is quite simply the best festival on the calendar. Small enough to feel homely, lots of space to move around, plus it still attracts a good quality of acts and one of the main stages is actually in a barn! Also the catering stand is run by the local rotary club and is next to a huge Field Of Dreams-like corn field. Rock and roll!

The lineup so far is:

Biffy Clyro * Black Nielson * Chip Taylor and Carrie Rodriguez * Editors * Fonda 500 * Goldrush * Hondo Maclean * Jetplane Landing * Jim Moray * Neil Halstead * Patrick Wolf * Piney Gir * The Schla La Las * The Magic Numbers * Towers Of London * Trademark * yourcodenameis: milo

The festival includes over 100 acts appearing across 5 stages. It takes place at Hill Farm, Steventon near Oxford on July 23 / 24 - tickets are just £25 if you buy before June 1st. Or you could just blag yourself a press pass by making a donation to charity.....
