Truck Festival is no stranger to a stellar line-up and they’ve produced the goods once again today as they announce their line up for 2020.

Last year organisers mailed fans potatoes with band’s names written on them as an ingenious way to release their line-up. This time, organisers teased fans with slips printed inside fortune cookies.

Six headliners make up this year’s line up; Bombay Bicycle Club (pictured above), The Kooks, Blossoms, The Hives, DMAs and Catfish and The Bottlemen as the festival returns to Hill Farm in Oxfordshire.

Blossoms, whose third album Foolish Loving Spaces is released tomorrow, will round off the festival’s opening day, accompanied by other artists including Pale Waves, Swim Deep and Sundara Karma.

The Kooks are set to headline the Saturday night with classic tracks such as She Moves in Her Own Way, Bad Habit and Naïve. They’re also set to play Kendal Calling that same weekend.

Speaking to DORK about the event, organiser Matt Harrap said: “We’re extremely excited to announce our first wave of artists for this year’s show.

“Having artists of the calibre of The Kooks and the forever-requested Bombay Bicycle Club coming to headline the event after many years of asking is truly humbling. Their sets will no doubt live long in the memory.”

Also on the bill are Leicester-bred Easy Life, who comedically Tweeted a photo of a truck ten minutes before the line-up was officially released. Tracks from recent EP, Junk Food will certainly feature in their set.

Closing the event on Sunday will be DMAs and Catfish and The Bottlemen, two bands guaranteed to round off the event in true Truck style.

In 2019, 25,000 people attended the independent music festival.

Truck Festival takes place from July 31st – August 2nd, 2020, with tickets on sale now.
