LIMITED WEEKEND TICKETS ON-SALE NOW AT
Truck Festival has ramped up the anticipation for its 25th Anniversary event by announcing a slew of more new names who will all be appearing at the Oxfordshire festival this July. Continuing to break boundaries by fusing heavyweight acts of the modern indie, rock and alternative scenes with new and exciting upstarts, this second line-up announcement is spearheaded by Sea Girls, Jaws, The Murder Capital and Cassia.
Elsewhere on the bill Noisy, Crawlers, The Hara, Folly Group, Courting, Grandmas House, Deep Tan, Sofy and Jacquard Looms will all appear over the weekend of 22nd – 24th July in the Oxfordshire countryside. Cementing the generational rite of passage weekend of hijinks that Truck has become renowned for, festival-goers are encouraged to act fast if they don’t want to miss out with 90% of tickets for the event already snapped up! All of the acts will be joining previously announced headliners Sam Fender, Kasabian, Bombay Bicycle Club and The Kooks, with a special Thursday night headline performance from Blossoms and a whole host more.
Fresh from selling out Brixton Academy on their last UK tour, Sea Girls are seasoned professionals when it comes to cultivating good vibes, and that is exactly what we can expect from the indie four-piece when they play Hill Farm later this year. Returning for what is sure to be a highlight of the weekend for many, the appearance will follow shortly after the release of their second album ‘Homesick’, which promises to overflow with mammoth riffs and momentous sing-a-longs if singles ‘Sick’ and ‘Again Again’ are anything to go by.
Looking forward to their performance at Truck Festival 2022 Sea Girls said:
“We are so happy to be playing The 25th anniversary of Truck Festival. We love it so much and have made some amazing memories there, so we hope it comes around quick!”
No strangers to Truck Festival either, Birmingham’s finest Jaws will once again return to the farm with three albums worth of delicately crafted indie gems to choose from. Their last album ‘The Ceiling’ was released in 2019, so it’s well and truly time for a Truck reunion don’t you think? Riding a wave of magnificent post punk seeping overseas from Dublin, The Murder Capital will also take to Hill Farm in July armed with a stark and tender yet full throttle and powerful live show in their weaponry, as anticipation continues to grow for their awaited second studio album. Bringing a much-needed mellow moment to three days of festival festivities, Cassia will capture the Truck audience in their delicately spun indie web and replicate the feeling of sunshine, even if the unpredictable Great British Summer may not always deliver.
Speaking about their return to the festival, Truck favourites Jaws said:
“We’re so excited to be back, it’s always a highlight of our festival run and we can’t wait to play!”
On Truck 2022 Cassia said:
“We played our first main stage at Truck in 2019 and safe to say we were a bit shaky before. That day Lou lost a dare and had to sing “Good Feeling” by Flo Rida during soundcheck in front of everyone. Can’t wait to get back in that field ✌️🌴”
Synonymous for being a voyage of new music discovery, up and coming talent has always been a mainstay of the Truck Festival ethos, and 2022 is no different with rave culture-inspired trio NOISY, rock fusion outfit from the North West Crawlers, viral genre fluid three-piece The Hara and East London alternative collective Folly Group all joining the bulging line-up.
“We are buzzing to be playing Truck Festival this year. We’ll be bringing the energy and a few new tunes we’ve not played live yet, so cannot wait!”
Other must-see acts newly added to the bill include Courting, who emerge from their hometown of Liverpool’s rich and steeped musical heritage, Bristol-based, thunderous upstarts Grandmas House, gritty post-punk London act Deep Tan, pop purveying singer-songwriter Sofy and indie rap rousers Jacquard Looms.
Speaking about playing Truck Festival 2022, Courting said
“Truck is a festival we’ve always wanted to play, the last time we attended, It was nearly 35 degrees and I got stung by 3 separate wasps. This time, we’ll be safely enclosed inside a tent, playing songs we wish we could’ve been playing then.”
Grandmas House said:
“We are sooo excited to play Truck Festival this year! It’s been a festival we’ve always wanted to play and the line up looks incredible! We are really looking forward to watching our faves Baby Queen and Sigrid!!!”
Back once again for 2022 Truck Festival continue their collaboration with local promoter Switch with the famous Switch Presents Palm City returning to the Market Stage and offering that fix of electronic music to run late into the night! With festival-favourite Wilkinson, Bru-C, Ewan McVicar, Chloe Robinson, Mollie Collins, A Little Sound, Mozet, Kara and Switch DJs all ringing through the night – there’s no other way to keep the party going than with Switch and Palm City.
It concludes another palpable announcement from the UK’s leading new alternative music gathering who stress that music fans must act now if they don’t want to miss out on a slice of the action, with 90% of tickets for the popular event already sold out.
Perfect for all ages, it’s a moment once a year to gather within a like-minded community in love with the experience of being together for one special weekend. To catch your next favourite artist revel in their finest gig to date before jumping into a ridiculous time at the Paint Party. To witness a huge headline moment with your friends before partying into the night. It all comes to life at your favourite artists’ favourite festival. Only at Truck.
Speaking about Truck 2022’s second line-up announcement, and the added excitement these new names bring, Festival Organiser Conor Burns said:
“We’re so happy to share our second wave of artists to our bumper Truck Festival 2022 Line-up! Favourites Sea Girls will help us see into the Friday and we’re over the moon to welcome fan favourites The Murder Capital to the Market Stage. PLUS Switch Oxford are bringing a stacked line up to Palm City this year with Wilkinson, Bru-C and Ewan McVicar taking us into the early hours. 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!”
