Foals, Wolf Alice, and Two Door Cinema Club to headline Truck Festival 2019

A stellar lineup

Truck Festival has announced its first wave of acts with Foals, Wolf Alice, and Two Door Cinema Club heading up the Oxfordshire festival this summer.

It will be the Foals’ first homecoming show in over five years, and marks 12 years since the Oxford band’s triumphant set at the festival’s Barn Stage.

Wolf Alice make another step into the world of festival headlining. The London quartet also top the bill at this year’s Standon Calling.

Slaves, IDLES, You Me At Six, Shame, Lewis Capaldi, Kate Nash, The Futureheads, Fontaines D.C., and many more acts will play at the festival at Steventon’s Hill Farm between July 26 and 28. Last year’s headliners included Friendly Fires and George Ezra.

Ahead of today’s (February 4) official announcement, the festival had teased punters over the weekend with….potatoes. Yes, Truck had written a variety of artist names on spuds and posted them to fans and ticket-buyers of the festival. Recipients posted their discoveries using the hashtag #truckpotato

The likes of FoalsWolf Alice, You Me At Six, Nothing But Thieves and Slaves were some of the acts written across the potatoes. You can see the tweets below.


Elsewhere, Truck Festival posters were plastered around Oxford on Saturday (February 2) with the truck monster logo and the slogan ‘they’re coming home’. It’s now apparent that this referred to Foals.
