Beloved, celebrated and rightfully acclaimed as one of the feel-good festival weekends of the year – Truck Festival is back for 2024. Bringing together an unforgettable bill across the indie, alternative and pop world for a festival bursting with character – Truck Festival stands as Your Favourite Artists’ Favourite Festival; a community celebration of a new rite of passage, and a shining gem of the Summer – with this year’s lineup ready and set to crown a true Summer highlight.

Fizzing with feverish energy, fun and games, Truck combines it all together for a weekend where it’s impossible to leave without a smile on your face. There really is entertainment and something for all ages to enjoy.

Bringing together the best in a modern scene of artists, 2024’s lineup boasts icons, huge headline favourites, thrilling new waves and laugh-out-loud silliness that can only be found at Truck. There’s a reason why it sits as more than just a festival weekend, but the holy ground for guitar-loving fans of all ages.

Leading the charge as one of four unmissable headliners at Truck 2024, is indie’s poet laureate Jamie T. An institution and trailblazing light ever since the release of his generation-defining debut album ‘Panic Prevention’, his whipping hooks have become a hallmark of huge stages and celebratory scenes – with his gritty take on city life becoming singalong anthems for fans across the globe. One of the most requested headliners in Truck Festival history, he finally makes his debut for a headlining set for the ages – with the likes of ‘Sticks N Stones’, ‘Sheila’, ‘Zombie’, ‘If You Got The Money’, ’90s Cars’, ‘Operation’ and more ready to make history.

As an undeniable home for an entire culture of fans, no better festival may be suited for Wet Leg, as they take to the Truck Stage for their very first festival headline slot. Since bursting on the scene with debut single ‘Chaise Longue’, Wet Leg have become THE breakthrough band of the past 5 years. Whether it’s storming to the top of the album charts with their self-titled debut album, soundtracking an entire moment in time, touring the globe with Harry Styles or scooping Grammy nominations galore – Wet Leg have crossed over into a bonafide force. Toasting a stunning rise to the top, Wet Leg headline Truck Festival for a moment that’ll live long in the memory whilst pointing to their exciting next chapter.

Lock down your aerials because at Truck Festival 2024, you’ll be listening to the sounds of The Streets. One of the 21st century’s most influential and genre-leading artists, Mike Skinner over the past two decades has ripped apart the rulebook with call-to-arms hits that paint a picture of modern British life. Earning a reputation as one of the most ferocious and anarchic live acts going, hits such as ‘Fit But You Know It’, ‘Blinded By The Lights’, ‘Don’t Mug Yourself’, ‘Dry Your Eyes’, ‘Let’s Push Things Forward’ and more – all the way up to cuts from latest album ‘The Darker The Shadow, The Brighter The Light’ has cemented The Streets as one of the UK’s most celebrated artists. Closing out Truck Festival 2024 in style, it’s a guaranteed show-stopper when Mike Skinner and The Streets come to town.

Kicking off the weekend headlining Thursday night at Truck 2024, IDLES take their spot at the top of the bill for a visceral adrenaline shot that comes with being one of the best live bands on the planet right now. Led by the unmistakable presence of frontman Joe Talbot, Bristol’s favourite sons have taken the Globe by storm – with their searing take on modern guitar music becoming a trailblazer for an entire generation. Always looking forward (with new album ‘TANGK’ already pointing to their most ambitious record to date), their powerful and vulnerable anthems serve as the perfect release to kick off the Truck weekend.

Across four days and nights, Truck Festival comes alive with a lineup that puts the good times first. Indie icons The Kooks return to Hill Farm, with the sort of arsenal of undeniable summer bangers that feel ready-made for festival memories (‘Naive’, ‘She Moves In Her Own Way’, ‘Ooh La’, ‘Always Where I Need To Be’ to name but a few) whilst Truck royalty Declan McKenna returns for his grandest moment to date – celebrating the release of new album ‘What Happened To The Beach?’ as a modern-day genius takes the next step up for a set that’s sure to be a weekend highlight. Also celebrating their next exciting chapter is Yard Act, whose bold new chapter with second album ‘Where’s My Utopia?’ is bursting with unstoppable energy that sees them rightfully claim their spot as one of the most exciting bands of recent times, whilst Holly Humberstone brings her stunning catalogue of modern pop turns to the Truck stage – for what’s sure to be a true coming together in the heart of a festival where the here and now is born for its greatest memories.
