Truck Headliners Confirmed (For Real This Time)

Dear Truckers,

We thought it was time for the first delivery of bands that are all confirmed to play at TRUCK 12 on 25/26th July. Sorry, no Megadeth! but we are pleased to announce some of our all-time favourite bands will be appearing at Hill Farm, Steventon:

Local heroes SUPERGRASS will headline on the Sunday night, while ASH shine a light and bring the hits to the Truck Stage on the Saturday.

Joined by the best new bands on the back of a truck, including RED LIGHT COMPANY and DETROIT SOCIAL CLUB.

Last year's favourites YACHT will play the Barn Stage in their only UK festival appearance. Sunday is Rock-day in the barn, with AND SO I WATCH YOU FROM AFAR, PULLED APART BY HORSES and CALORIES already confirmed; DATA SELECT PARTY and many more will appear on the Saturday. Over in the Beat Hive ERRORS, HELOISE AND THE SAVOIR FAIRE, CHEW LIPS, SPORTSDAY MEGAPHONE and NERVOUS TESTPILOT are all confirmed.

Inspired by our succesful experiment at WOOD last year, The Market stage will be run on solar power this year. It will feature new 4AD signings BROKEN RECORDS on the Saturday, and on Sunday will be curated by Steventon’s own Bob Harris, presenting GARY LOURIS & MARK OLSON (The Jayhawks), PETE MOLINARI and MIKE HERON and GEORGIA SEDDON (Incredible String Band songwriter performing with his daughter) with more great names to come.

Tickets costing £70 for the whole weekend are on sale now
