Truck Festival - Free Download Mixtape. Tomorrow sees the start of the marvellous Truck Festival near Oxford. We went last year and had a brilliant time and are thoroughly looking forward to this year’s event where the line-up includes Gruff Rhys, Graham Coxon, Saint Etienne, John Grant, The Young Knives, Edwyn Collins, Benjamin Francis Leftwich, The Duke & The King, Tunng, Justin Townes Earle, Alessi’s Ark, Sea Of Bees, Pete & The Pirates, Caitlin Rose, Lanterns On The Lake, Cashier No. 9 and (as the cliché goes) many, many more.

There will also be another Truck America this year in New York state in September, featuring none less than The Felice Brothers, Vetiver, Wye Oak, The Hold Steady and the Low Anthem amongst others.

To celebrate the festival we’ve put together a mix-tape of 15 great tracks for you. Also look out for a couple more Truck related posts tomorrow and Saturday.

Tickets and information can still be got here – you won’t be disappointed!

    I went to see Jonquil and thought they were a pretty cool live band. They had some great tunes and the most un-frontman ever (who was brilliant). Plus there Bass player looked like a young Boris Johnson. Sold to me!
