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. The line up for Truck 13, Truck's annual festival taking place on July 24-25 in Steventon, UK, includes performances by Mew, Los Campesinos! and Future of the Left.
