Live Gig Video: Keston Cobblers’ Club cover Blink-182’s ‘I Miss You’ at Wilderness Festival

By on Friday, 23rd August 2013 at 4:00 pm

If you came of age in the late ’90s, you either loved or hated the cheeky humour of California punk poppers Blink-182. After their appearance at Wilderness Festival in Oxfordshire earlier this month, London folkies Keston Cobblers’ Club recorded this version of Blink-182’s ‘I Miss You’, part of their ongoing ‘shoes off’ series, and it’s a surprising performance. Watch it below.

Preview: Truck Festival 2010

By on Monday, 19th April 2010 at 12:00 pm

If you’re an Oxfordshire native, or if you just can’t handle the massive crowds at the larger festivals, then from July 23rd to 25th, I’d recommend heading down to Hill Farm, Steventon, for the 13th Annual Truck Festival. Drawing around 5,000 punters each year, the festival gets its name from the flat-bed trailer they use as the main stage, and has a total of six stages, offering everything from Americana to post-rock to electronica. The Barn Stage hosts buzz bands during the day and on Saturday night hosts the Cow-shed Rave. You’ll find acoustic and country artists at the Market Stage, and for those who want to get their groove on, there’s The Beat Hive, a 20m diameter geodesic dome. If you’re looking for the next big thing, then check out the Village Pub, where BBC Oxford Introducing will be showcasing some of the best unsigned bands around. And if you need a break from all those stages have to offer, then you can head over to Boxford Tune Diversity and listen to “DJ sets at peak times and laid back electronica and deep sub dub when your head and feet need a rest.”

The festival is small and independent and raises a lot of money for charity (over £50,000 last year alone). Organizers Robin and Joe Bennett pride themselves on having “a genuinely DIY attitude and a talent for spotting the next big thing.” Bands are still being announced, but the lineup looks good so far, with bands like Los Campesinos!, Mew, Good Shoes, Future of the Left and Stornoway making appearances.

Truck Thirteen tickets are on sale now, both online and through local outlets. See their tickets page for more details.??Ticket Prices are as follows: Adult (18+) – £80, Teen (13-17) – £60, Minors (0-12) – Free. Children ages 14 and under must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Parking costs an additional £8 for cars (£15 on the day), and camper vans cost £20. Weekend tickets include access to the festival from 9am Saturday, and include 2 nights camping (Saturday & Sunday). Friday night tickets (£15 adv/£20 on the day) give you access to the festival from 4pm Friday.
