Truck Festival makes triumphant return

United Kingdom United Kingdom | | 24 September 2007

The independent Oxfordshire weekender bathed in sun and revelled in fun, providing one of the few good news stories of a weather-ravaged festival summer.

The site at Hill Farm in Steventon was swamped back in July when its river bank broke, forcing organisers to postpone the event.

A number of bands were unable to reschedule due to touring or recording commitments, but the likes of  I Was a Cub Scout, FoalsBlood Red Shoes and Electric Soft Parade more than made up for a few gaps. 

Alex from Electric Soft Parade told BBC 6Music: "It keeps hitting me every few minutes - this almost shouldn't be happening, it was technically cancelled. It's just amazing that they managed to get it to happen. It's beautiful. And so far the weather's been holding out."
