“To welcome long-awaited headliners like Jamie T and The Streets to Hill Farm is a true honour, whilst having Wet Leg headline their very first festival with us is going to make for a very special weekend. Whether it’s discovering new favourites, diving straight into mosh-pits thanks to those legends The Oxford Symphony Orchestra, singing along to your favourite songs or checking out the amazing comedy/family entertainment on offer – Truck 2024 is a landmark year for us and we can’t wait to see everyone there! We’ll get our requests for Barrioke in now.”
Last year The Streets – aka Mike Skinner – released a new album, The Darker The Shadow, The Brighter The Light. The album came paired with a feature length film of the same name, described as a “tripped out noir murder mystery based in Londons’ clubland.”
Mike Skinner spoke about the album and film: “It has been seven long years working on this film and album. It’s something I’ve always wanted to do and after dipping my toe in with some shorts and music videos, I felt I was ready. I tried to go the traditional route for a bit, but it’s always served me better to follow my instincts and just get on with it myself, so I’ve directed it, acted in it, edited, sound mixed, funded, produced it all as well as written it. The album doesn’t exist without it.”
