We are welcoming a truck-load of great music to Hill Farm this year; on the main stage we have the likes of Spiritualized, The Horrors, The Subways, Ash, Gaz Coombes, The Joy Formidable, And So I Watch You From Afar, and Frankie and the Heartstrings; the Market Stage hosts Dry The River, Dan Le Sac vs Scroobius Pip, Patrick Wolf and Public Sevice Broadcasting, while the famous (and ever so slightly fragrant) Barn stage features performances from We Are The Ocean, Rolo Tomassi and Tall Ships and the mysterious Copaca-Barna takeover. See the whole line-up and choose which bands you’re going to see using the amazing Line-up Planner app on our website, and share your choices with envious friends.
Truck has always liked to host a bit of a dance party of an evening, so we are glad to welcome back the Kingdom of Jamalot, bringing everything from Reggae to House to Electro-Swing to Jazz-Funk to Dub to Beatboxing to “Home Counties Hip-Hop”… you get the picture! Jamalot are pleased to announce Live and DJ sets from: Spaceface, The Gees, Firelodica featuring King Bracket, Positive Vibes, Simple, SRS, Boogie Bros, Nairobi, Heavy Dexters, Sensible Dancehall, King Lloyd aka Sir Sambo, The Dublings, The Fridge and Bungle, Pieman, Rip/Rhymeskeemz, Mr Shaodow, and the Knights of Jamalot. Yes,Mr Shaodow is back, and we are glad!
Like last year, Progressively Less Elephant and Nellie B Page will be getting the night-time party started in the Market Stage, and keep an eye out for a UFO…!
As mentioned previously, we have a number of new stages, including the Veterans and Virgins tent (the best of Truck past and future) and the Saloon – live Americana and Blues in a custom-built structure which has to be seen to be believed!
Also new this year, we will be hosting our own (slightly silly) Village Fete on our own Village Green, including the World's Largest Tombola and the Bureau of Silly Sports, as well as rustic farm tours and tractor rides. There will be a Birthday Party on each day for anyone whose birthday it happens to be, Cake Decoration, and prizes for the Best Dressed Trucker, complete with rosettes for the winners!
Family activities will include a fully-stocked Children’s Tent, including music from Nick Cope, and theatrical performances from Oxford Playhouse. Remember, children 12 and under go free, and there is a separate Family camping area, making Truck a great family event.
Our food repertoire has been greatly expanded, with a new Food Hall hosting guest stalls from acclaimed local suppliers such as the Old Farmhouse Bakery and Q Gardens Farm Shop, and serving everything from sushi to steaks to salads. Yum. Our bar will host a Beer Festival with a variety of tasty local ales, while it’s rumoured that The Horrors will be mixing cocktails, Tom Cruise-style, in the Beach Bar after their set!
Indeed, whatever your taste, age and persuasion, there is something great going at Truck just for you. Weekend tickets are available now priced £74. These are likely to sell out. No day tickets are or will be available.
Tickets are on sale from our website or in person from Truck Store, Oxford. Ticket link here (you can choose Standard or Family camping areas).
