Katie Hopkins listed among Truck Festival’s ‘banned items’

"Due to her vile and horrendous opinions"

Oxfordshire’s Truck Festival has banned the controversial Katie Hopkins from attending this year’s festival.

The festival, who announced their line-up featuring George Ezra and Friendly Fires this week, have listed Hopkins among their ‘prohibited items’ list on their website.

Alongside the usual likes of glass, pyrotechnics and selfie-sticks, Hopkins is also forbidden “due to her vile and horrendous opinions that Truck Festival wholeheartedly disagree with”.

Nominated as ‘Villain Of The Year’ at the 2018 VO5 NME Awards, Hopkins often causes upset among the masses due to her extreme views regarding race, migration, class and illness.

This comes after Manchester’s Parklife Festival banned potato peelers from this year’s event, due to headliner Liam Gallagher’s continued feud with brother Noel.

Truck Festival takes place from July 20-22 at Hill Farm in Oxfordshire, and with the bill topped by Friendly Fires and George Ezra, and another headliner yet to be announced.

Other acts announced include De La Soul, Everything Everything, Circa Waves, Peace, Rat Boy, Pale Waves, Dream Wife, Gaz Coombes, We Are Scientists, The Sherlocks, The Magic Gang, Marika Hackman, The Big Moon and many more.
