Living in Oxford for university, I was gutted that I wouldn't be there over summer to go to Truck Festival, which always has a great line-up. Highlights this year included Public Service Broadcasting, Lucy Rose and Rae Morris, as well as local band Balloon Ascents who I saw play a couple of times over my first year at uni. For a bunch of young guys they've got their heads on their shoulders and are playing some really cool music and building up a local fanbase, as well as playing shows further afield - particularly at some Sofar Sounds concerts in other countries. Here is a session of the band performing their track Cut Out, which I posted the official video for back in May - the session was for Radio 2's Bob Harris and filmed at the festival. Having seen them play an acoustic in store at Truck Store I can recommend a listen to this session, as the band gel together wonderfully in this stripped back environment.
