Oxfordshire’s prestigious Truck Festival has announced its first wave of bands for 2019. Taking place in the picturesque Oxfordshire countryside, the festival has been treating attendees to the UK’s best and brightest bands for 20 years.
This summer will see Slaves appear at Hill Farm once more – this time headlining the main stage on Thursday 25th July. The duo from Kent have been relentlessly touring since the release of their third full-length album, Acts of Fear and Love. Appearing at the 21st Truck Festival is sure to bring a belter of a set from the band.
Joining Slaves at the top of Truck Festival’s bill is Wolf Alice. After winning the Mercury Music Prize for their second album, Visions of a Life, the last 12 months have been hectic for them. They had the pleasure of supporting Liam Gallagher, Foo Fighters, and even Queens of the Stone Age in 2018, cementing their status as one of the UK’s best guitar bands.
The mighty Foals will be returning to Truck this year. They’ll make their first appearance at Hill Farm since 2007 as the headline act on Saturday night. The success of both of their 2018 albums means that all eyes are on them, and we’re sure their performance won’t disappoint.
Closing the main stage of Truck Festival 2019 will be the alt-pop giants, Two Door Cinema Club. They skyrocketed to success with the release of 2012 album Beacon, before seemingly dropping off the face of the earth. However, that’s behind them now and the three have got some new music in the works. Hopefully they’ll treat us to some whilst at Truck!
Appearing elsewhere on the bill are colossal Bristol punks Idles, Louisa Roach’s dreamy psych-pop project She Drew the Gun, and the rising alt rockers Press to MECO. Festival attendees can also see Kate Nash, Shame, Lewis Capaldi, The Futureheads, Palace, Sea Girls, Fontaines D.C., Milk Teeth, Puppy, Heavy Lungs, Devon, Lady Bird and a whole host of other brilliant UK indie bands across the weekend.
Previous line-ups have included huge names including Biffy Clyro, Catfish and the Bottlemen, and The Libertines, and this year’s poster is just as star-studded as others. Taking place between 26th and 28th July (with early-entry tickets available for Thursday 25th) at Hill Farm, Oxfordshire, Truck Festival 2019 is not to be missed. See the full lineup below!
