Over the course of 22 - 24 July, Truck will once again be opening its doors for members of the public to enjoy a whole host of performers that are new and thriving with alternative music genre.

2022’s line-up will feature the headlining acts Sam Fender, Kasabian, Bombay Bicycle Club, The Kooks and Blossoms. 

Speaking about their Special Guest Co-Headline set at Truck Festival 2022, The Kooks said: We’re super excited to be headlining Truck Festival for their 25th Anniversary next year. It’s been a long time coming and we can’t wait. See you on the main stage”

Headlining the Thursday night of Truck Festival 2022, Blossoms added: “It’s been a long time coming, but we’re delighted to be heading back to Truck Festival next summer as headliners! We have great memories of playing at the festival in 2016, and we’re honoured to be sharing the bill with some of our favourite bands and artists.. It’s going to be a special one, and we look forward to seeing everyone there!” 

Festival Organiser Conor Burns said: “It’s been a very long time coming but it feels so good to be back and we’re over the moon to finally announce the first wave of artists for our 25th Edition! To have four of our all-time favourites sharing headliner duties is a real privilege. Sam Fender, Bombay Bicycle Club, The Kooks and Kasabian to close off the Sunday night, Truck Festival 2022 is already proving to be one for the history books. 

“We’re also thrilled to welcome back Blossoms to our Thursday night headliner slot, Sigrid on our sunset slot and, of course, personal favourites Yard Act and Orla Gartland amongst many others. Hill Farm has been a tad quiet and we can’t wait to throw the ultimate birthday bash - see you at the bar?”

Also playing Truck Festival are Sigrid, Kelis, Black Honey and Easy Life. 

A spokesperson for the festival said: “With today’s names just a snapshot of the wider Truck 2022 picture, it marks a welcome return for one of the most beloved UK festivals around. With a leading reputation as the go-to destination for the best in new alternative music, Truck’s larger than life village vibe rings true. 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 open up a mosh-pit in awe of The Oxford Symphony Orchestra after spending the morning getting limbre with Mr Motivator. 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.”
