Truck Festival in Steventon near Abingdon has been stopped for the second year running by the coronavirus pandemic, which has disappointed music fans from across Oxfordshire.

Now music fans are asking if other Oxfordshire major music festivals - Wilderness, the Big Feastival, Cropredy - will also suffer the same fate for the second year running.

Truck was set to attract more than 18,000 people to Hill Farm, for the weekend July 22-25.

It was to be headlined by indie and rock acts Bombay Bicycle Club, The Kooks and Royal Blood. Also due to play were Arlo Parks and Everything Everything.

However, organisers pulled the plug, insisting it would be "too risky".

The government put back lifting coronavirus restrictions until July 19.

In a statement to ticket holders, organisers said earlier: "We are absolutely devastated to confirm that Truck Festival will not be able to take place again this year.

"We’ve explored every possible avenue to make Truck happen this year. However, with the delay to the roadmap and without the necessary assurances and guidance from the Government, it’s become too risky for us to put the event on and deliver it to the high standard that you know, love and greatly deserve.

"It’s the news that many expected but few wanted."

The rescheduled festival will take place at the same place from July 22-24, next year.

The organisers added: "We are all craving those three days in a field, with great music surrounded by friends old and new.

"Two years has been a long time to wait, but we can wholeheartedly promise to deliver a 25th birthday party Hill Farm has never seen before, with a line-up to match."

They added: "The good news is we’re happy to confirm that tickets, upgrades and glamping for this year’s festival will automatically be rolled over to 2022. So next year’s festival is secured and no further action is required.

"If unfortunately you’re not able to join us in 2022, you’ll be able to claim a face value refund on all tickets, upgrades and glamping packages. We’re working closely with our ticketing partners and they will be in touch with instructions on the next steps within seven days."

Nationally, Glastonbury, which would have taken place in Pilton, Somerset, this week has been the biggest casualty of this year's wave of cancellations.

Still planning to go ahead are: Wilderness, near Charlbury from August 5-8; Fairport's Cropredy Convention, near Banbury from August 12-14; The Big Feastival at Kingham near Chipping Norton from August 27-29.

Reading Festival and its sister event in Leeds are also planning to proceed from August 27- 29.

Boom Town, due to have been held near Winchester in August, has been scrapped, while the organisers of the Womad (World of Music and Dance) festival due to be held near Malmesbury, Wiltshire, from July 22-25, are proceeding cautiously.
