The Lemonheads have been confirmed to headline this year’s Truck Festival in Steventon, South Oxfordshire in July.

The band’s only UK appearance in 2008, will see them perform their classic 1992 (and recently reissued) album It’s A Shame About Ray in it’s entirety, as well as other hits from their catalogue.

The festival is set to take place on July 19 and 20 and tickets for the small but perfectly formed Truck Festival are nearly sold-out.

Now in its 11th year, Truck has gained a following for being rammed with new bands and its wholesome, independent approach.

As well as The Lemonheads, the likes of Small Faces keyboardist, Ian McLagan and The Bump Band, MAPS, These New Puritans, Lovvers, Noah and the Whale, The Television Personalities, Emmy the Great will play across the event’s six stages, with more to be revealed on arrival at the festival.

According to the Truck website: “We will not be making a full line-up announcement.”

“TRUCK is about discovering your new favourite band, and rediscovering those resident eccentrics on the fringes, whilst chewing a burger from the Rotary Club or an ice cream from the Vicar, before buying a few pints from those cross-dressing bar staff!”

Tickets cost £60 and are available from the Truck website.
