Truck Festival could barely contain their delight as they announced Sunday headliners The Courteeners. The Manchester Indie-Rock band are celebrating the 10th anniversary of hit album St Jude and will be sure to end the festival with a bang. There were some strong additions to the Oxfordshire festival’s bill as the second wave of acts was released. Joining the already announced George Ezra and Friendly Fires are The Editors, Fickle Friends and Drenge.
This will be The Editors second appearance at Truck after their previous appearance thirteen years ago. Festival Organiser Matt Harrap commented: “We’re incredibly excited to finally share our second wave of artists for Truck Festival 2018! I can’t wait for Editors to play the Sunday sunset slot as we’ve been trying to get them to return for years since I witnessed them play my favourite set of 2005 in The Barn.”
Truck seems to have mastered the mix between unknowns, top acts and breakthrough artists. Keep your eyes out for Milk Teeth, Hey Charlie, and Bad Sounds. With The Amazons, Blaenavon, and Rat Boy already announced Truck Festival 2018 is looking to be one hell of a party!
Stage splits were also announced with Bad Sounds joining Peace, and Jaws on the Thursday night. After filling the Market Stage’s tent with crowds trying to get in last year, Jaws will be looking to repeat their electric performance. We spoke to front man Connor Schofield who said “We can’t wait to return to Truck festival, it seems to have an energy like no other, we always feel so welcome so we can’t wait to get back on that stage”.
Truck Festival will take place from 19th – 22nd July at Hill Farm in Steventon, Oxfordshire. Weekend tickets are available at £110, with Thursday add ons at £25. Don’t hang around though as they’re selling pretty quickly!
