This year’s Truck Festival sees Wolf Alice, Foals and Two Door Cinema Club headline the festival with the likes of Johnny Marr, Slaves, Sea Girls, She Drew The Gun and more appearing across the weekend.
2019’s Truck Festival is sold out, so if you’re off to the festival this weekend, then here are nine bands you really shouldn’t be missing. If you’re like us and spending the weekend at home/gigging elsewhere, then here are nine bands you should be listening to if you aren’t already!
Also, here’s a handy Spotify playlist with the following and more who are playing at Truck Festival across the weekend.
In brief: Super-catchy, summery tunes from Macclesfield’s finest indie-rock band Cassia. The band will certainly will bring the sunshine to the festival regardless of how the weather pans out.
In brief: Breezy indie-pop soundtracks to the summer which are absolute earworms. There’s not one bad track on Ten Tonnes debut, self-titled album which was released earlier this year either.
In brief: London’s finest purveyors of sparkly indie-pop. We were sold on Latenight Honeymoon’s live performance earlier in the year and the band have recently supported Bloc Party in Brighton.
In brief: Leeds based, harmony filled, hard-edged indie pop with bite. The band recently supported Kaiser Chiefs at their homecoming show at Elland Road.
In brief: Glasgow based indie-rock quartet Lucia combine garage-rock with bubblegum pop creating powerful, memorable tracks.
In brief: DECO bring their feel-good pop tunes to life with their energetic live performance. Forthcoming single ‘Dreamer’ is their catchiest offering yet.
Psychedelic Porn Crumpets
In brief: Perth natives Psychedelic Porn Crumpets combine big riffs with a psych-rock, even hypnotic side. The band’s live performance is known to be crowd-surfing/mosh-pit inducing.
In brief: Feet are an eccentric quintet whose catchy, quirky music won’t fail to get you moving. The band’s latest single ‘Outer Rim’ (out today) which sees the return of their rawer, more garage earlier sound.
In brief: Jangly, nostalgic indie-pop from Liverpool with refreshing, sparkling melodies and just generally charming tunes.
