Unmissable: Truck Festival 2019

Truck festival might have one of the best lineups of the Summer and for anyone lucky enough to have a ticket (yes, that does include us) then this might be the best weekend of 2019!

We have picked 8 bands over the weekend that we think you need to go and see!

Thursday

Lady Bird

Lady Bird are one of the most exciting punk bands emerging right now! Signed to Slaves' own 'Girl Fight' records, they have made a name for themselves over the past year or so. Producing emphatic and energetic live shows, you are never that far away from a mosh pit when seeing them live.

When?

17:30pm on the Truck Stage

Friday

Spector

Spector keep releasing remarkable comeback singles. With year breaks in between releases and no album since 2015, Spector fans are just hoping for the big release announcement. After playing an incredible show at Sebright Arms a few weeks ago, this is definitely a set not to miss.

Feet

FEET

Wonky, jangly rock music, fantastic facial hair and a remarkable live show! FEET are one of our favourite emerging bands of 2019 and with debut album 'What's Inside Is More Than Just Ham' announced for October, FEET are making this year all about them, and for all the right reasons.

17:30 on The Nest Stage

Wolf Alice

If you aren't planning on seeing the Mercury Prize winners on Friday then I'm not really sure why you are going to Truck 2019. With two of the best guitar albums of the 2010s under their name, I cannot believe it has taken until 2019 for them to be regular festival headliners.

21:45 on the Truck Stage

Saturday

Shame

Having released our 'Album of 2018' with 'Songs of Praise', Shame have taken a little break from touring but are not back playing festivals. Their raucous post-punk style has really brought the previously-dormant genre back to life. Being placed on The Market Stage, get down early otherwise you might not get in.

Sports Team

As frontmen go, Alex Rice of Sports Team might just be one of the most exciting, energetic and impressive to grace the stage at Truck 2019. The Cambridge 6-piece have made a name for themselves across the country for their spectacular live shows and with every release being as strong as the last, they are a must-see.

Sunday

Gaffa Tape Sandy

Having played Glastonbury Festival in 2017, been included in NME's 100 Essential Acts of 2018 and supporting IDLES/Peace/Indoor Pets on tour, you can already see how good Gaffa Tape Sandy are. Their latest releases 'So Dry' and 'Headlights' also might be their best two singles to date, so this must be the start of the uprising that will take GTS to main stage slots and maybe even headline sets.

Whenyoung

The dreamy, stunning and catchy singalongs that Whenyoung make have become pretty standard for the Irish rockers. Their debut album 'Reasons To Dream' came out in May and with shows alongside Nick Cave and Patti Smith this Summer, Truck Festival might be the smallest show they play this year.
