Following a mammoth 25th anniversary celebration in 2022, Truck Festival have unveiled the first names confirmed to appear on the line-up for its 2023 edition. Across the penultimate weekend in July Truck Festival will welcome four headliners that span the breadth of the indie, rock and alternative spheres, from effervescent indie pop to primal rock ‘n’ roll with some folk-inflected alt rock thrown in for good measure too.
Alongside stalwarts of the aforementioned genres, the festival have also announced a slew of names that include some of the most celebrated and beloved faces in modern alternative music as well as the cream of the crop when it comes to the grassroots music scene and emerging acts – staying true to Truck’s ethos of supporting upcoming talent to help cultivate a sustainable and diverse festival landscape.
Making for one of the most anticipated returns of the year, Royal Blood will be marking the occasion with a headline performance at Truck Festival 2023 brimming with palpable and primal anthems such as ‘Figure It Out’, ‘Out Of The Black’ and ‘Little Monster, taken from the breakthrough self-titled debut album that catapulted them to fame almost ten years ago. The duo, who were scheduled to appear at the event in 2021, will also no doubt be ready to unearth some of the new music they’ve been working on to share with the Hill Farm audience.
Talking about what is sure to be a gargantuan Truck Festival headline set, Royal Blood say:
“After being booked to play in 2021, we can’t wait to finally head to Oxfordshire and headline Truck Festival this summer! Expect a party.”
Following on from their tenth anniversary tour of standout debut album ‘An Awesome Wave’, Alt-J will be making their way to Hill Farm this July to headline Truck Festival, armed with a decadent selection of their dazzlingly intricate and folk-leaning alt rock songs. Spanning across four full length albums, the Leeds trio have honed a quintessential sound, making their tracks instantly recognisable from the first chords of ‘Breezeblocks’ and ‘Left Hand Free’ to name but a few.
