We’ve just been sent one of those email things from the wonderful people of Truck Festival with a massive list of 49 newly added acts including Kodaline, Jurassic 5 and Mystery Jets. We really didn’t expect quite this many to be announced – it’s practically an entire festival in one single announcement!
Turns out the third and final headliner will be the Irish chart-toppers Kodaline.
Last year saw the release of their second album stunner; Coming Up For Air which hit Number 1 in the Irish Album Charts and an amazing fourth place in the UK.
The lads have some achingly beautiful songs and are sure to leave Truckers spellbound.
Jurassic 5 are a perfect choice for Truck. Laid back summer vibes with so many songs that ooze soul.
With their lyrical genius and funk laden beats J5 first set the bar for hip hop in the Nineties with the release of their self-titled album.
Hats off to whoever’s idea this was!
Mystery Jets make a welcome return to Truck having played the festival back in 2012.
New album Curve Of The Earth was only released a couple of months and you really need to hear the singles Bubblegum and Telomere if you haven’t already.
Singer/Songwriter SOAK (real name Bridie Monds-Watson) is a nineteen year old precocious talent who won the Irish Choice Music Prize and was sortlisted for best album at the Mercury Prize with her 2015 album Before We Forgot How To Dream.
Just think of how you’ll be able to brag that you saw her back when she was really young!
Currently making massive waves around the world are Swim Deep. Drowning in tripped out psychedelic guitars this band is sure to make a real splash at Hill Farm.
Check out this amazing satirical video for Namaste from their recent album Mothers.
