July events: Truck Festival
See big names in rock and dance music perform at an intimate festival on a farm near Oxford.
Supported by locals and friendly to families, Truck Festival has become Oxford’s premier independent music festival but has remained small in size, due to the size restrictions of Hill Farm. Belying its small stature, it features several unique settings for gigs.
Three flatbed trucks make up the main stage (though this isn’t the origin of the festival’s name), and another of the six stages is a cowshed with a distinct farmyard vibe. All of the venues take on double lives as they switch between rock and folk acts during the day to electronic music later into the evening.
Feeling peckish? Stop by The Food Hall (run by local volunteers) to feast on a variety of street food options, including gluten-free and vegan bites.
Truck Festival 2022 takes place between 22 and 24 July.
