Getting more excited each day for this, got Zodiac on top of my ticket again this year, do love just popping in and out of the arena all day

How is Zodiac camping? Doing it for the first time this year, and not sure what to expect

It's pretty decent; camp right next to the arena, never that crowded/loud, proper toilet and some showers (can be a 30 min wait in the morning but by 12 there's barely a queue)

Whats the deal with booze at this festival? Will be my first time at truck. 

Are we allowed to bring in as much as we want, multiple trips back to the car etc? Can we bring it into the arena like Glasto & Trees?

No, they binned off letting people bring it in to the arena about 5-6 years ago.

Watch out too as some bars will sell cans and others pints for roughly the same cost.

That's understandable really, i just hope they'll let me go back to my car so I can grab my booze as i wont be able to bring all my stuff in on one run. 

Thanks for the heads up, will definitely stick to the bars that sell pints! If i want a can i'll go back to camp and skull one!

I'm not 100% sure they allow booze on re-entry nowadays (yes very annoying!), might be best to check with Truck first

It caused a bit of a stink at the time as one of the good things about Truck was you could take a barrel load of booze in with you...however once they got bought by a company from London that all changed.

Obviously the festival hasn't been on for three years so things may have moved around but the bar by the main stage was selling cans last time....there was another bar in the middle of the market stall that was pumping out old 80s and 90s tunes till 2am and that was selling pints...and had mostly older people like me propping up the bar and chatting crap to randoms. 😄

Its a good little festival, I've been to most of them since it started as I only live 2 miles away and seen it grow from 400 people to 20,000!

Yeh I can't recall either tbh.....you might be right however I just checked their alcohol FAQ and can't see it being mentioned.

Safeguarding & Security - Truck Festival

TBH even if that is the case its such a small site you could just bring your tent and booze in on the first run then go back out for everything else afterwards....

That's very true, it's why I find Truck so good, a minimal walk to the car and back!

When I first went in 1999 you could park your car next to your tent!! 😄

I’m due to work Truck, but haven’t received any news or anything, does anyone know what time I can get in on the Wednesday 

I'd wager around brunchtime, but not sure, I will say. Hopefully there's a heads-up soon.

Hi all, 

looking forward to this one and it’s my first time.

what is the festival like once the main music is done for the day?

cheers

The main tent has dance/dnb on till 2am....there is also (well there was in 2019) a bar in the main market area that has DJs on till 2am playing a mix of 90s/00s dance and indie music....

Its not a major all night festival, once 2am hits everything in the arena shuts down.

Sounds perfect. After a heavy glasto I’m content with bed at 2am!
