Truck Festival postponed due to weather

United Kingdom United Kingdom | | 20 July 2007

Truck Festival will now be held on 22 September after organisers announced the event would be unsafe to go ahead as planned.

A statement reads:

"It is with great regret that Steventon Festivals and Truck Foundation are forced to announce the postponement of this year's Truck festival.

Much of the site is under several feet of water and the Ginge Brook has completely overflowed its banks, leaving all the camping, parking and audience areas underwater and dangerous. We already have numerous acts on site as well as t-shirts, programmes, CDs and the rest and we are only doing this as an absolute last resort.

We are rescheduling the event at the same location on the weekend of the 22nd September with all tickets remaining valid, and we would like to encourage ticket holders to come to that event rather than seek refunds, as it will make it more likely that we can stay afloat financially.

Those who bought physical tickets who wish for a refund should post their tickets and return address details by registered post to:

TRUCK, The Old Stables East, Church Lane, Steventon, OX136SW clearly marked 'ticket refund'.

This offer is only valid if tickets are received by us by Saturday 28th July 2007.

Those who bought online tickets from should contact them to arrange a refund according to their terms.

We would like to emphasise again that we'd like all of you to come to the rescheduled event if at all possible and we can pretend this biblical flood never happened!

Love from The Truckers"
