Truck 2002

TRUCK 2002 was billed as ‘I am Five’. The dynamic Jetplane Landing, who exemplified the festival’s independent ethos, headlined the main stage, while the festival’s penchant for Americana (perhaps it’s the rustic setting) meant gothic country twosome The Handsome Family appeared on the main stage, and indie heroes Seafood featured in the sweaty confines of the new Trailerpark stage, appearing for their third year in a row, while many bands from Truck Records appeared, including the Four Storeys, Black Nielson (who still faithfully washed out the cowshed each year), and Fonda 500.

That year was also notable for an appearance by Young Knives, very early in their career, and bangin’ drum & bass sets in the barn from Kenny Ken and DJ Zinc!
