After having to postpone 2020’s festival, we’re finally going to be able to enjoy Truck Festival’s line up this summer. All of the bands we’ve been waiting to see live during this past year are finally going on stage and we couldn’t be more excited.
The 2021 festival is officially sold out with headliners like Bombay Bicycle Club, The Kooks, Royal Blood, and support from dozens of artists like Circa Waves, Tom Walker, Idles, Pale Waves, and so many more!
