Ones to Watch: Truck ‘23

It's that time of the year again; Truck Festival is fast approaching, the hangover from last year has just about worn off and we're ready to do it all over again.

2023 sees the return of Truck diamonds Two Door Cinema Club and Royal Blood take to stage as your headliners, so we already know we're in for a wild ride. But with a festival filled with so much talent, we thought we'd help narrow it down to just a few acts we think you should catch across the weekend.

  1. Opus Kink

Prepare yourself for some of the biggest sounds coming to Truck this year, seasoned with elements of punk, funk, and jazz in an utterly poetic masterpiece. In an outrageously yet incredibly diverse soundscape, Brighton's Opus Kink will have no trouble conjuring up a sweat fest at The Nest.

Listen: Dust

FFO: Grandmas House, Hotel Lux, Do Nothing

2. Wunderhorse

If you haven't heard the name Wunderhorse being bandied around, then where have you been? Jacob Slaters latest pseudonym has been widely renowned since the release of their debut album 'Cub' - a record that must be played in full on the loudest speaker in the house, a story of life, an exploration of relationships, told through grungey rhythms, wistful melodies, and gritty yet heartfelt lyrics that will have you utterly captivated in the stories of Slater. Catch them at The Market Stage on Friday!

FFO: The Goa Express, Courting, Chappaqua Wrestling

3. Stone

From the very first listen to now, Stone just keep getting better and better. Having toured across the UK over the last few years, Stone have racked up the reviews from their live shows; relentless and downright anarchic performances that prove they're one of the UK's best up and coming acts on the scene at the moment. With straight-up swagger and a catalogue of pure bangers, Stone will for certain have you wanting to bounce, scream, and kick. Catch them on the Sunday at The Market Stage.

FFO: Bilk, The Blinders, RATS

4. Gengahr

Think dreamy rhythms that'll leave you in a summer daze, sunny melodies written for the big screen. Bringing with them their jangly summer anthems made up of blissful and incredibly colourful rhythms that tell stories of the past yet giving us hope for what's to come. Gengahr are a match made in heaven for Truck so grab a fresh cold pint, get ready to dance, and head down to The Market Stage on Sunday.

FFO: The Big Moon, The Magic Gang, JAWS

5. Hunny Buzz

There's a buzz around this new Bristol band recently and we can see why. Hunny Buzzy, with their handful of singles, have captured every sound needed for a summer festival; sparkly indie-pop that will have you bopping all night long. Their most recent track 'Now I Can Get Over You' is a perfect one for those needing a cathartic singalong post-breakup. You can catch Hunny Buzz on the This Feeing stage this Saturday!

FFO: Wet Leg, Beach Bunny, Lauran Hibberd

And if a day of live music isn't enough for you, visit the Switch presents Palm City tent for a night of dance afterwards.

6. Shy FX

King of the dance floors, British house legend Shy FX hits Truck Festival for a night of non-stop anthems as he headlines the Saturday at Palm City. Armed with a holster of mesmerising tunes, diverse soundscapes and off-the-rails shenanigans, catching this set will be the perfect way to end your evening if 11PM is still too early for you!
