I'm suprised they haven't announced some kind of increase in capacity. This lineup is amazing value for money I don't get how they can pay for everything with only 10k tickets. I don't mind, trying to speed up my friends at the moment!

No day splits for this yet? Foals, Idles, Shame, Palace, Heavy Lungs, Kagoule on the same day would be amazing.

A large proportion of Global's money probably went into booking acts for truck this year as the line up last year wasn't too well-received. Tramlines, Kendal and Standon all have inferior line ups to this IMO so I reckon Truck would have been given a larger share of the budget this year than the other festivals were to book acts.

I wonder if this will be to the detriment of Victorious

Or the acts Broadwick block booked were available for this and Y Not but not Kendal, Tramlines, Standon. Flip the line ups next year. See The Libertines and Noel Gallagher past 2/3 years.

Well now... this is very much of interest.

But given it sells out very quickly and I've not got commitment from my friends yet, I already get the feeling I might be missing out.

Tier 2 almost gon

the lower-priced tiers are always smaller in number, so it doesn't really mean very much.

With many of the fests i'm listing the first price tier doesn't really exist (just try finding one that's actually available to buy, 1 second after they've gone on sale), it's just a scam to make the tickets look cheaper than they are.

I've emailed and they've said it is available for people to do that. I assume if you don't park early on the Friday you should be fine getting in and out each day.

Definitely. Loads of locals pop in and out as need arises.

also I'm pretty sure other stage headliners don't clash with main stage headliners, at least i think that's how it worked in 2017

Yeah headliners on the main and second stages generally follow each other, although other stages will clash.

You've got some time yet, last year the price went up in rounds of about £5 over 5/6 tiers if I remember correctly. They're advertising tier 3 on the website currently.

Don't know about big names but I'd love if they nabbed Black Honey, Skinny Lister, Arkells and Demob Happy from the Y Not announcement.

Like out of the current announcement do we know who the market stage headliners are?

Reckon anteros could be added too, and possibly the Hunna.

Sundara karma are due a return visit as well.

Does Truck have a official coach partner? We would be coming from Manchester and coach would be the best option.
