Festival Organiser Matt Harrap commented:
 “We’re incredibly excited to finally share our second wave of artists for Truck Festival 2018! Indie cult heroes Courteeners will help close out the weekend which will no doubt result in the most raucous crowd Truck Festival has ever experienced. I can’t wait for Editors to play the Sunday sunset slot as we've been trying to get them to return for years since I witnessed them play my favourite set of 2005 in The Barn.
Drenge will give the crowd everything making as much noise as possible as they make their Truck debut this year, closing the Market Stage on Saturday night. It's a must see for me!
But it’s not all about the main stages, and we are glad to welcome back The Rockin' Chair for the second year! With the likes of live mass karaoke band Massaoke, Rhythm of the 90s and the Oxford Commas, it’s guaranteed to be the heart of the party!
We still have plenty of talent and stages to announce over the next couple of months including Truck staple The Barn! With tickets flying, we really recommend not hanging around!“

The festival, which formed in 1998, will take place from 19th – 22nd July at Hill Farm in Steventon, Oxfordshire. 2018 will be the first time ever that the festival has opened its doors on the Thursday with the festival taking place over four days this year and celebrating its 21st birthday!
