Truck is about discovering your new favourite band and rediscovering those resident eccentrics on the fringes whilst chewing a burger from the Rotary Club or an ice cream from the Vicar before buying a few pints from the cross-dressing bar staff!


Truck Fest was founded by Robin and Joe Bennett on a farm within a welly wang from their family home. Well known for a DIY attitude and for spotting the next big thing first, TRUCK has seen the likes of everyone from Ash to The Lemonheads to Garth Hudson grace its stages. With a strong charitable ethos (the RotaryClub flip burgers and the vicar sellsice-c creams) the event has raised thousands for local and national causes.

Other previous performers include: Mystery Jets, Supergrass, These New Puritans, Camera Obscura, Ian Maclagan (Small Faces) and the Bump Band, Noah & the Whale, Damo Suzuki, Wildbeasts, Biffy Clyro, Emmy the Great, The Coal Porters and The Television Personalities.
