In pictures: Truck Festival celebrates biggest year

Truck Festival welcomed 6,000 through the gates this weekend.

The festival, which took place this weekend (18-19 July), welcomed 120 performers to the Oxfordshire countryside.

Headline performers The Charlatans and Basement Jaxx helped celebrate Truck’s 17th anniversary.

Early bird tickets and a payment plan options have today (20 July) been released for 2016’s event.

The Charlatans blended a hit-heavy set with newer material, while Clean Bandit’s performance wove original chart-topping tunes into their own re-workings of club classics.

Earlier on the Truck stage, guitar music reigned with Augustines, Don Broco and Honeyblood.

On the Market stage, Mercury Prize-nominee, Ghostpoet, and New Yorkers Darwin Deez delivered sets.

“A huge thanks to everyone involved and everyone who came along. This year’s Truck saw some brilliant sets, it’s a thrill to see our crowd enjoying the music so much,” Truck Festival marketing manager Matt Harrap said.  “Our biggest audience to date is a sure sign that the interest in Truck shows no sign of slowing down. Looking ahead to 2016 we’ll be working hard to ensure that we follow up on this year’s success with another great event for next summer, we hope to see you all there.”
