On the main stage are Vadoinmessico: a 5 piece band from various countries who are currently residing in London. They describe their music as ‘beautiful, nostalgic psychedelic freak-folk.’ We managed to see them at Dot to Dot this year and they certainly live up to their description!
Dog Is Dead
We’re also extremely excited to be catching Dog Is Dead again, they’re an up and coming 5 piece ‘indie pop’ band from Nottingham. They’re a very lively bunch of lads, meaning they’re full of stage presence and the music just tops it off. Fantastic every time we’ve seen them.
We’re really looking forwards to seeing Mystery Jets headline Truck Festival, they’re a London band who have really caught our attention. We seriously recommend catching them if you want to have the best possible time!
Also on the main stage and headlining Truck Festival this year is Temper Trap a four piece indie rock band from Melbourne, Australia who had chart success with ‘Sweet Disposition’ which managed to get all the way to number 6 in the UK charts. Although we’ve never seen them live we can’t wait!
On the second stage we think you should definitely check out Lucy Rose one of our personal favourites. Lucy Rose an English singer/songwriter from Warwickshire. She gained fame by performing backing vocals for Bombay Bicycle Club, it’s been stated that she’s one of “indie music’s breakout stars for 2012” and she’s definitely one to watch.
Another one to watch on the second stage is Frightened Rabbit, a Scottish 5 piece indie rock band. We haven’t managed to see them live yet, though we are ecstatic to be doing so. They’re a summery band and we think they’ll set a real ambience at the festival.
King Charles are another one we urge your see. We’ve just seen him at Blissfields and he was fantastic, his music is very catchy and he is great with the crowd, we reckon his set will be a massive party… and who’d want to miss that?!
The last band we insist you just have to watch at Truck Festival is Little Comets, an indie rock trio from Newcastle-upon-Tyne who’ve been compared to the likes of Vampire Weekend. These guys are destined for big things so they’re definitely a band to see.
