Truck Festival called off

The Oxfordshire site is waterlogged

Truck Festival in Steventon, Oxfordshire has been called off today (July 20) due to bad weather.

The event was due to kick off tomorrow (July 21) with the likes of Idlewild, The Brakes and Jack Penate due to play.

A statement released by the organisers explains that the nearby Ginge Brook river had burst its banks due to excessive rain, leaving the camping, parking and audience areas flooded.

Many bands have already turned up to the event which 2500 fans attend annually.

The organisers have said they will re-schedule the festival for the weekend of September 22, and that original tickets will be valid for this weekend. Fans unable to make the dates will be entitled to a refund.
