Oxford event expands again

Young Knives are amongst the latest additions to this year's instalment of Truck Festival.

Held in Oxford, Truck festival began as a family affair. Expanding over the years, the event has never lost that sense of togetherness which adds to its unique atmosphere.

Returning for its fourteenth instalment, Truck is set to welcome along some old friends. Young Knives hail from nearby Ashby De La Zouche, and are well acquainted with Truck having recently played a special Record Store Day event with the organisers.

Fresh from the release of their new album 'Ornaments From The Silver Arcade' the trio are set to play Truck. Returning to the event after a gap of several years, Young Knives will have a few surprises up their sleeves.

Elsewhere, Truck are set to showcase some of the new acts from Oxford. The city's music scene is bustling of late, with the Blessing Force community at the centre of the media whirlwind.

An entire stage is set to be given over to Blessing Force talent, with the likes of Chad Valley and Trophy Wife mixing with lesser knowns such as ODC Drumline and the promising young MC Durrty Goods.

Other new additions include Electric Soft Parade and an appearance from Reading indie favourites Pete & The Pirates. Currently gearing up for the release of their second album, the group are an always entertaining live act and have it all to prove after an extended gap following their second album.

The new additions to the line up include previously announced acts such as Graham Coxon, Saint Etienne, Johnny Flynn, Gruff Rhys and more.

Tickets are on sale now.

Truck takes place between July 22nd - 24th.
