THE team behind Oxfordshire’s best-loved festival of new music, have announced that despite having previously gone into administration, the event has been saved.

Brothers Robin and Joe Bennett, who set up and ran the event at Hill farm, in their home village of Steventon, near Abingdon, have this morning announced that the event will go ahead under new management.

Despite being hailed a huge success, last year’s festival made a loss, forcing Robin and Joe to put the company into administration.

Over the course of its history, Truck has provided a showcase for some of the country's, and, indeed, the world's, best-loved artists, hosting sets by a diverse bunch of acts including Foals, Supergrass, Mercury Rev, Blur's Graham Coxon, Radiohead's Phil Selway, Ash, Bellowhead, The Lemonheads, The Young Knives, the Brian Jonestown Massacre and Seth Lakeman.
