TRUCK America - Full Moon Resort, Big Indian, NY - April 2010

TRUCK America coming April 2010

TRUCK America

1969, 3 Days of Peace and Music, Woodstock Music and Art Fair.

Staged in the stunning Catskill Mountains in upstate New York, what was supposed to be a small gathering of free loving musicians and fans quickly transpired into one of the most pivotal moments in Rock and Roll history.

Woodstock was a powerful representation of the sixties and it showcased some of the most groundbreaking musicians ever, some at the most early stages of their careers.

The TRUCK festival in Oxfordshire, UK has run for the past 13 years on the same basic principles of independence and ethically minded and cooperative production, with a passion for introducing cutting edge music as well as a reverential nod back to the classics.

Full to capacity every year thanks to a loving word of mouth reputation, TRUCK is more than a little inspired by the spirit of Woodstock.

Bands like Supergrass, Fanfarlo, The Lemonheads, Regina Spektor, Battles, Okkervil River, The Raveonettes, We Were Promised Jetpacks, Wild Beasts, YACHT and The Big Pink have been part of the TRUCK experience over the years.

Come April 30, 2010, TRUCK UK are packing their rather large bags and heading to the Full Moon Resort in Big Indian, NY for the inaugural TRUCK America Festival.

The three day, 1000 capacity gathering will celebrate the art of live music, personal (offline) connections and the environment.

Robin Bennett, one of TRUCK's directors says:

"I got the inspiration for the original Truck Festival UK in part from watching the Woodstock movie so it seems fitting to start our US invasion in the Catskills, which is a hotbed of creativity to this day. Thanks to a tip-off from our friend Sean (aka Grasshopper from Mercury Rev), we found the perfect location - the Full Moon Resort - which can be reached easily from New York, Boston and indeed all parts of the North-Eastern US. We think that Truck's approach, building community through music and encouraging environmental awareness, will find a ready home in the US, as it has in the Shire of Oxford. Plus, we love to throw a good party!"

And really...who wouldn't kill to go to a three-day shindig, set deep in the beautiful Catskill Mountains??

Confirmed performers, where tickets can be purchased and many more details coming in January!
