Good morning, Truckers –

This is almost the last time we’ll be writing to you before Truck Festival 2013 actually HAPPENS – only 5 days to go until the gates swing open and we pitch our tents at Hill Farm, Steventon!

We hope you have been enjoying this most un-British summer HEATWAVE, and if forecasts are to be believed, it is set to continue right through next weekend, so it looks like you will need sunscreen and flip-flops rather than wellies and umbrellas (though always best to be prepared for all eventualities).

We love to give you musical presents; last week we gave you a compilation album from Alcopop / Big Scary Monsters, and this week we have a fine 5-track EP for you from our Saloon co-hosts, Clubhouse Records. It features 5 of the best current UK Americana/Roots acts, all of whom will be rocking the Saloon, or to give it its full title, “The Great Western Whisky Saloon and Blues Kitchen” – head here to download your copy (it’s free):

If you haven’t already, “Like” our Facebook page to see regular updates of the Truck site coming together, it is already well on the way and the crew are enjoying the glorious sunny weather at Hill Farm. Here’s a video glimpse of the Saloon being assembled:

There are a few tickets for Truck remaining – though not a great many, they are likely to sell out next week – available from and from Truck Store, Oxford. No tickets will be available on the gate and there are no day tickets.

See you in ONE WEEK, Truckers! 

Love from all at Truck HQ x
