Our friends at TRUCK and WOOD festival are keen to thank you all for the hard work you do, and the commitment you have shown to community action of all types. A few months ago they extended the offer of discounted tickets to WOOD Festival - and this offer is still open to you (and your families) to get cheaper tickets by following www.gigantic.com/thankyou
WOOD is Britain's greenest festival powered completely on renewable energy, harnessing the power of the sun, the wind and even the people who attend the event (through a cycle-powered cinema and disco), there are composting toilets (no portaloos. Whoop!) and a stage made of, you guessed it, WOOD. It was created after the floods of 2007 - and is piloting a new green festival standard in conjunction with Julies Bicycle.
With great music from award winning, mercury nominated and critically lauded band THE UNTHANKS busker punk FRANK TURNER, experimental folks TUNNG, the ever popular Irish troubadour FIONN REGAN, 2008 winner of Radio2 Folk Award MARTIN SIMPSON, friends of the festival DANNY AND THE CHAMPIONS OF THE WORLD and all the way from the USA FRONTIER RUCKUS. Also confirmed are ORA COOGAN, TREVOR MOSS & HANNAH LOU, and DUSTY AND THE DREAMING SPIRES, PEGGY SUE,
