TRUCK AMERICA at the Full Moon Resort, Big indian, NY
Full Line Up announced!

The first ever TRUCK AMERICA is thrilled to present a special appearance from upstate NY legends and one of our all-time favourite bands MERCURY REV! The show will feature a career retrospective selection of favourite tracks of ours and theirs, accompanied for the first time by a chamber orchestra lead by TRUCK founders Joe and Robin Bennett (on Violin and Flute respectively).

We are also pleased to deliver a batch of the finest independent and roots artists from both sides of the pond; From Brooklyn the energetic WHITE RABBITS, the doomy majesty of HOPEWELL, eclectic psychedelic pop from HERE WE GO MAGIC, punk-rock from FORGETTERS - the latest from ex-Jawbreaker man Blake Schwarzenbach; top-drawer country-rock from Jayhawk leader GARY LOURIS, Joshua Tree resident TIM EASTON, and Canada's hardest working band THE SADIES; a dose of upstate folk from MIKE & RUTHY, WILLY MASON and IDA; a slab of power rock from Nova Scotia's WINTERSLEEP; and from back home in Blighty THE JOY FORMIDABLE  one of Britains hottest new acts, SAM ISAAC (as heard on NBC's "Chuck" recently) and NEIL HALSTEAD of Slowdive / Mojave 3.

Also joining Robin & Joe's new project DUSTY & THE DREAMING SPIRES at the Full Moon Resort will be the many varied delights of our stateside friends CAT MARTINO, THE SILENT LEAGUE, COMMON PRAYER, OXYGEN PONIES, BRANDON PATTON, ATLANTIC / PACIFIC and THE SHOESTRING BAND and many more acts on 3 stages (The Barn, The Roadhouse and the Main stage, in a large heated tent).

The festival is not just about watching bands: there will be WORKSHOPS, FILMS, KIDS ACTIVITIES and JAM SESSIONS, and a healthy dose of ENGLISH CAMPING for those who don't book a room.

1969, 3 Days of Peace and Music, Woodstock Music & Art Fair. Staged in the stunning Catskill Mountains in upstate New York, what was supposed to be a small gathering of free loving musicians and fans quickly evolved into one of the most pivotal moments in Rock and Roll history. Woodstock was a powerful representation of the sixties and showcased some of the most groundbreaking musicians, many at an early stage in their careers.

The TRUCK festival in Oxfordshire, UK has run for the past 13 years on the same basic principles of independence and ethically minded and cooperative production, with a passion for introducing cutting edge music as well as a reverential nod back to the classics. Full to capacity every year thanks to a loving word of mouth reputation, TRUCK is more than a little inspired by the spirit of Woodstock. Bands like Supergrass, Fanfarlo, The Lemonheads, Regina Spektor, Battles, Okkervil River, The Raveonettes, We Were Promised Jetpacks, Wild Beasts, YACHT and The Big Pink have been part of the TRUCK experience over the years.

Come April 30, 2010, us TRUCKERS are packing our rather large bags and heading to the Full Moon Resort in Big Indian, NY for the inaugural TRUCK America Festival. The three day, intimate gathering will celebrate the art of live music, personal (offline) connections and the environment. Robin Bennett, one of TRUCK's directors says...

"I got the inspiration for the original Truck Festival UK in part from watching the Woodstock movie so it seems fitting to start our US invasion in the Catskills, which is a hotbed of creativity to this day. Thanks to a tip-off from our friend Sean (aka Grasshopper from Mercury Rev), we found the perfect location - the Full Moon Resort - which can be reached easily from New York, Boston and indeed all parts of the North-Eastern US. We think that Truck's approach, building community through music and encouraging environmental awareness, will find a ready home in the US, as it has in the Shire of Oxford. Plus, we love to throw a good party!"

And really...who wouldn't kill to go to a three-day shindig, set deep in the beautiful Catskill Mountains??
