Superstruct Entertainment-owned Truck festival (cap. 25,000) said its 2022 event raised more than £120,000 as part of its Truck In The Community initiative.

The Oxfordshire festival, which this year hosted artists such as Bombay Bicycle Club, Sam Fender and Kasabian, raised £100,000 from its Feel Good Food Tent to be divided between 10 local charities.

It also raised another £20,000 raised through on-site fundraising for its newly launched Truck Trust. The funds donated to the trust will now be given to 26 Oxfordshire charities.

The festival, which this year celebrated its 25th anniversary, also collaborated with UN Women’s Safer Spaces Now campaign and the Young Women’s Music Project. The latter designed the Truck charity T-shirt alongside artist Iman Mahdy to raise £2,500 for charity.

It also featured programmed workshops in the Signature Brew Taproom, as well as Be Free Young Carers, which participated by filling paint bags ahead of the festival’s annual paint party in exchange for weekend tickets to the event.

Be Free Young Carers CEO Sabiene North said, “Truck Festival has always been a loyal supporter to us and we were delighted to have been supported this year. They have given our young carers, and their families, the opportunity of a lifetime to attend an event that wouldn’t normally be available to them.”

Ahead of the event, more than £60,000 worth of festival tickets to Truck 2022 were donated to the Tickets For Good scheme, where NHS workers were given the opportunity to enter a ballot for free tickets to the event. The festival also worked with a local primary school to offer students the chance to draw portraits of the 2022 lineup, which were then printed onto tea towels and sold at the event to raise £500 for the school.

Its annual Apply To Play scheme allowed for 32 slots across the weekend to be given to new and emerging talent.

Overall, Truck festival has raised more than £500,000 for the local community since 2014.
