Truck Festival makes triumphant return
United Kingdom | |
24 September 2007
Truck festival was finally able to celebrate its tenth anniversary this weekend, more than two months after flooding forced
organisers to postpone the event.
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, Foals, Blood
Red Shoes and Electric Soft Parade more than made up for a few gaps.
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."
