are the same weekend.
This is really not good.
be getting on with announcing their line up?
Most of the others have announced something and that has to affect ticket sales.
What's the betting on Sigur Ros as headliner?
I would buy a ticket ASAP.
I think they waited until late march last year, and they sold out in the end.
but I've never been to truck - and seeing as it's so close, I'm really quite gutted I'm going to miss it again :(
besides, Bestival, perhaps?!
Looks pretty promising!
55 last year was just about right, but, even then seemed like a bit of a sharp rise...I can still recall when it was 25.
100 would be too much, they can't justify that sort of money without booking big names...and people don't go to Truck for big names in the first place.
£100 is the combined ticket for Truck and Wood. They haven't released a ticket price for Truck yet, but as Wood is £45 on its own it doesn't look like parity.
for truck. its really not worth that much...but then i've only been once...
Bright Eyes, Kris Kristoffersen, Black Mountain
REM, Billy Bragg, Robyn Hitchcock
SFA, Stereolab, Les Savy Fav, Vampire Weekend
Are playing these dates in July:
Locarno City Square (18)
Perugia Parco Giuliana (20)
Latitude would be a bit difficult...
Anyway, Sigur Ros are a lock surely?
you have better things to dream abou than Billy Bragg?
they were a week apart last year. i really want to work at Truck again but i want to go to at least one big festival this year and Latitude is going to win there. sigh. i do so love truck though...
and I'm sure Truck was initially advertised as being the following weekend, but as it is both have moved into the same line of fire as Camp Bestival, Glade and Lovebox. The following week there's no major competition past the more location than bill Secret Garden.
for some reason i had it in my head that truck was always the last weekend in july.
Well, it is traditional.......
