What a clever idea: Get a truck. Get a pa. Get a field. Get some bands. Sell tickets and give some of the profits to Amnesty International and other local charities.
Truck Festival 2002 takes place on Saturday 20th trough Sunday 21st July @ Hill Farm, Steventon, Nr Didcot, Oxfordshire. For all you infotainment nerds, this the fifth year of Truck, it now attracts an audience of over three thousand music junkies from the "incestous" Oxford music scene and people without silly wigs and long gowns from all around the country. The event is put together by the Bennett brothers out of Goldrush who also started Truck Records. And it's going to be good, so go!
