Next in this little festival series is that other biggest little festie – so gargantuan its 2 days packs in enough music to fill almost twice that – it is Oxfordshire’s Truck. This one I was lucky enough to review twice, 2012 review >>here<< & >>here<< and 2013 review >>here<<. Truck is yet another so grand it sells out and I’ve seen reports that this year ticket sales are up considerably on this time last year so with just a matter of weeks to go you really NEED to be jumping all over it and getting your tickets.

The second time I attended the stage areas swelled up to 5. Yes, that’s correct 5 and with such a wide range of genres covered it is perfect for EVERYONE. The addition of The Saloon run by Clubhouse Records was a big hit and I recall each and every time I tried to stop by it was quite literally rammed to bursting point. I fondly remember the large comfy sofas adorning the outside of one of the small bars near the smaller second main stage which were perfect to rest off the slight hangover I was having after a brilliant first night before. Everything is so close too, including the campsite it’s like you can just hop, skip and jump and cover the entire grounds. And yet even so, it never feels at all claustrophobic. Except for maybe in that there Saloon bar but in there that’s part of the fun in the hot summer heat as smooth Americana plays live right into your mind. 

As mentioned, its genres mix marvellously bringing you some superb local talent, impressive and sometimes brilliantly obscure international artists as well as some of the most sensational pop/rock acts, to boot. And no one can neglect that pungent Barn stage which does its very best to rock the roof right off and away! Each year it packs in more and more so all said and done, I highly recommend you try out this tantalizing Truck Festival. But as with the others I’ve covered so far in the series you really MUST HURRY before tickets sell out! 

So, let’s take a quick look at who will be gracing those Truck stages this year.
