Across the penultimate weekend in July Truck Festival will welcome four headliners that span the breadth of the indie, rock and alternative spheres, from effervescent indie pop to primal rock ‘n’ roll with some folk-inflected alt rock thrown in for good measure too.

Alongside stalwarts of the aforementioned genres, the festival have also announced a slew of names that include some of the most celebrated and beloved faces in modern alternative music as well as the cream of the crop when it comes to the grassroots music scene and emerging acts - staying true to Truck’s ethos of supporting upcoming talent to help cultivate a sustainable and diverse festival landscape.

Elsewhere on the line-up, there’s something for everyone as Truck Festival 2023 provides the best in essential new music. That penchant for future superstars rings true, with an array of the most talked-about and celebrated new voices returning to Truck for unmissable moments that’ll have thousands saying ‘I was there’ before anyone else, as Truck Festival continues its reputation as the epicentre of the sounds of the future.

And if all of that musical goodness wasn’t enough, Truck Festival have also shared their side-splitting comedy line-up for the 2023 event including big name acts such as Seann Walsh, Emmanuel Sonubi and Jonathan Pie.
