Truck Festival announce line-up additions

Truck Festival tickets for Thursday 22 July – Sunday 25 July




From 22 – 25 July, Truck Festival will finally return to its beloved Hill Farm in Steventon for the 23rd edition of the UK’s longest running and most cherished small festival. For the first time ever Truck Festival has SOLD OUT prior to the release of the line-up, after having to sadly cancel last year’s event.
                                Today the second wave of acts have been revealed, including two-time Mercury Prize nominees Everything Everything and 2021 BRIT Winner Arlo Parks, as well as Palm City x Switch, Rockin Chair and This Feeling line-ups - all joining this year’s headliners Bombay Bicycle ClubThe Kooks and Royal Blood. Last remaining tickets will be available in a resale this Thursday 20th May.
                                Everything Everything return to the Truck Main Stage this July, after releasing their provocative and eclectic Top 5 record RE-ANIMATOR just last year. They have five Top 20 albums to their name, including 2010’s debut Man Alive, the first of their five Ivor Novello nominations. The art rock band from Manchester celebrated starting a new chapter with the release of their latest album and are continuing their new explosion of life with 2021’s single ‘SUPERNORMAL’, and a UK and Ireland tour on the horizon.
                                Singer, songwriter and poet Arlo Parks joins the bill, hot on the heels of her BRIT performance and award win for Best New Artist. Parks released her debut studio album, Collapsed in Sunbeams, earlier this year to critical acclaim, reaching No.3 in the UK charts. She creates expressive, ruminative indie-pop songs that have taken the industry by storm, with over 3 million monthly Spotify listeners and amassing over a hundred million streams across her catalogue – Parks’ first Truck performance is not one to miss.
                                Also announced are indie-rock band Swim Deep, who will perform on Thursday, refreshing post-punk musician Billy Nomates, Birmingham rockers Jaws, indie-pop riser Oscar Lang, underground success The K’s and Reading four-piece Only the Poets.
                                Truck Festival marketing manager, Conor Burns, says: “We’re so happy to share a huge wave of artists and stages to our bumper Truck Festival 2021 line-up! Favourites Everything Everything will help us see into the Saturday and we’re over the moon to welcome the hugely talented (and BRIT Award Winning) Arlo Parks to Hill Farm for the first time. Barrioke with Shaun Williamson in the Rockin Chair is going to once again tear the roof off our Barn, and truly is a sight to behold! As we’ve said, the whole team are truly overwhelmed with the response and still in awe of the demand for tickets this year, July cannot come quick enough.”
                                Line-ups for Palm City x Switch OxfordRockin Chair and This Feeling have been revealed, as well as day/stage splits. Holy GoofHybrid Minds and Skream are heading up the Palm City x Switch Oxford, with familiar names such as Barrioke (featuring Shaun Williamson), Rhythm Of The 90sOld Dirty Brasstards and more performing on the Rockin Chair stage.

                                After receiving amazing support from Truck fans, the festival sold out long before any of the line-up was revealed. Last remaining tickets will go on resale this Thursday 20th May, available for those who signed up to the waiting list.
