Truck Festival is now just a matter of weeks away and it will see some huge acts take to the stage including The Libertines, Franz Ferdinand and The Wombats. We took a look at the lineup and picked some of our favourites to see over the course of the weekend.
Potentially the most exciting indie-pop band around at the moment, Sundara Karma released their debut album back in January and have since done a headline tour, and landed support with the likes of Two Door Cinema Club. The Reading lads take to the Truck Stage on the Saturday of the festival, never failing to put on a crowd moving set; you won’t wanna miss out.
Inevitably, The Wombats are one to fit in to your festival schedule. As the penultimate Truck Stage act of the Saturday, these will sure get you hyped up in time for headliners The Libertines. If you’ve seen them before you’ll know just how good of a show the Scouse trio put on; blasting out indie-anthems such as Let’s Dance to Joy Division, Moving to New York and Tokyo.
Synthpop quartet Jaws are an unmissable part of the Truck Fest lineup. Since forming in 2012 they’ve blessed our ears with two albums filled with dreamy tunes like Stay in, Gold, and 17. As one of the best live acts I’ve seen, these guys are definitely ones to look out for over the weekend.
The Big Moon
The London quartet who formed in 2014, released their debut album earlier this year; filled with numerous feel-good tracks. Anticipation to see their performance will certainly be high.
The Kent quartet will headline The Barn stage on Saturday. Throughout their material there is an energetic theme with the lads describing themselves as ‘surf inspired pop’. Upbeat, breezy tracks like Pro Procrastinator and Teriyaki will give you that summer feeling.
