They're going to be £60 this year.
I actually hope they don't go on sale until next term now, so that I'll be back in Oxford and can be guaranteed getting a ticket
its not gonna happen
i have a bad feeling.
i've heard rumors that Truck 10 was going to be the last Truck anyway, but this lack of activity is concerning me that it's not going to happen at all now :-(
in shops in oxfordshire...
who knows, really?
somewhere in Europe right now? It could explain the lack of activity.
Truck Ten dates
This year’s Truck festival will be the 21-22 July.
Standby for more information!
but thats been up for ages and last year it had sold out by now i think...just a bit odd that there's been no news whatsoever
Sold out by 8th March, it seems. Maybe the local council are holding out on permission or something.
Here's something I learned last year of very little note - you know how Steventon village prides itself on its cleanliness and has a load of 'Best Kept Village In Oxfordshire' plaques up? All that's paid for by Truck, apparently. That's surely an unfair advantage.
because i want to go but cant, as i'll be overseas.
they should skip this year, and wait til next year. i hate missing out.
im just playing btw. hooray for truck.
much earlier than usual last year though.
said they had it from a reliable source that they will probably go on sale on 1st april in oxford, internet sales later
I hope that's right. I can get mine easily then.
is what I heard.
Easter Monday, a Bank Holiday? Doubt it.
...Oxford's Nightshift magazine:
"This year's Truck Festival will take place over the weekend of the 21st and 22nd July at Hill Farm in Steventon.
Local music fans will get a chance to buy tickets ahead of the rest of the country from Tuesday 10th April when 1,000 tickets will go on sale at Fopp shops in Oxford and Reading as well as Dawson's in Abingdon.
More information on how to buy tickets online is available at www.truckfestival.org.
No line-up details have yet been given."
I'll be interested to see the line up now that two of the main bookers are no longer working on the festival.
...the official forum says this:
"Dear all Truck-goers and afficionados,
This is just a quick note to provide a bit of correct information before the serious announcements begin next week.
The reason some things are happening later than usual this year is that with this being the 10th Truck festival, we have taken the opportunity to make some major alterations that will mean that Truck can carry the spirit and excitement of those 2 days in July all the way round the year and into the future.
We also wanted to make sure that the original Truck festival can stay at Hill Farm and keep its well-loved character.
We will tell you how to register to receive priority information on how to buy internet tickets as we want to make sure those who really want to come get tickets.
The festival will be on the weekend of July 21 and 22nd, with tickets priced £55. This covers camping on the Saturday and Sunday nights and means that parking can remain free, as well as covering our increased police bill, meaning that we don't have to make the festival bigger and turn it into just another identi-festival. The line-up will be of its usual strong and varied nature, selected by the same people as usual, and in fact everything will be the same as last year, only better. So, see you there."
how easy will it be to get tickets you think, or how fast will they sell out should i say?
