WOOD is a new festival
The organizers behind TRUCK, the UK’s coolest small-but-perfectly-formed summer festival, are creating a new kind of music event, powered by bicycles, wood-burning stoves and the sun. The aim of the festival is to celebrate music and nature, so naturally it’s called… WOOD!
We should say ‘here’s the first purpose-designed green–eco-sustainable festival’ but we’d sound like ‘Dave’ Cameron - we prefer to keep things simple, natural and… woody. Things made of WOOD include the composting toilets, the showers, the campfire, the guitars, the yurts (yes, you can hire one) and, of course, the stage. The food will be cooked (by our friends from Oxford’s famous Vaults & Garden Café) in a wood-fired oven, and we’re making all the performers do a song by our patron saint Woody Guthrie.
The festival will be held at Braziers Park, Oxfordshire (a country house previously owned by 007 author Ian Fleming and once the love-nest of Mick Jagger and Marianne Faithful) on May 16th, 17th & 18th 2008.
