FESTIVAL PREVIEW: TRUCK FESTIVAL 2022

Truck Festival 2022

Hill Farm, Steventon, Oxfordshire, 22-24 July 2022

Words: Amy Butcher

I can’t believe I’m even writing the words, but festival season is properly back this year and so is Truck Festival! If you’re lucky enough to have snagged a ticket to the sold out festivities, you’ll be lucky to see The Big Moon, Shame, Black Honey, Talk Show and many more at Hill Farm this summer. Treating you to some fantastic headliners; Sam Fender, Kasabian and Bombay Bicycle Club, it’s set to be one hell of a weekend. 

With an array of artists and bands to choose from across the weekend, I’ve pulled together our recommendations… 

Ones To Watch

Swim School

Hailing from Edinburgh, the Scottish four-piece Swim School have started to make a name for themselves over the last year. From their first headline show in London towards the end of 2021, and a string of festival slots including every new band’s bucket list, Brighton’s The Great Escape, they’re storming into the music scene. Similar to the likes of Wolf Alice, you can expect dreamy, addictive melodies and groovy indie rock sounds from a Swim School set. This band is so exciting and one to watch at Truck Festival

Inhaler

Just the thought of hearing Ice Cream Sundae live with a cold beverage in hand, makes me ready for festival season! Inhaler are next on my list for Truck Festival, and they need no introduction. The Dublin born quartet will be bringing their serotonin-inducing, euphoric sound to the festivities, and you’d be a fool to miss their set! Their stage presence alone is enough to get the most dance prone crowd member to start two stepping. I know you’re gonna love it!

Gen and the Degenerates

One of our long time favourites, Gen and the Degenerates are gracing Oxfordshire with their delectable sounds. You should all be familiar with them by now, but if you’re not, let us introduce you. This Liverpool band have been making waves in the music scene; from their latest debut EP Only Alive When In Motion released earlier this year to supporting Skunk Anansie in April, the five-piece are only just getting started. So, what can you expect from these rock stars? Gutsy guitar riffs, intoxicating melodies and a kick-ass stage presence. If they weren’t on your radar for Truck Festival, they should be now – head to the This Feeling stage to check them out for yourself. 

The Clause

Want to fly high in the sunshine? If the answer is year, This Feeling’s stage watching The Clause is where you should be. Ever since hearing their infectious track In My Element during the second lockdown, I’ve been obsessed with the Birmingham indie band. If their recent single Electric is anything to go by, this is only the beginning. Mixing bluesy guitar melodies, titillating riffs, catchy drum beats and a nostalgic air in their sound, they’ll be sure to get you hyped and raring for more!

JAWS

I remember first listening to this band back in 2015 when I had first moved to London for university, and ‘Think Too Much, Feel Too Little’ became the anthem for my first year. JAWS have really developed their sound since, and their third album The Ceiling has left me curious to see what they do next. I haven’t seen them live in years, so I don’t know what you can expect from a JAWS live set at Truck Festival. Though with their jangly tunes and feel good vibes, you’re sure to have a fab time grooving along with your mates. 

Sadly, Truck Festival 2022 is now SOLD OUT. You still have a chance to grab a ticket by joining the waiting list here.
