Truck America

The 2011 Truck America Festival, set to take place in the Catskills from Septeber 9-11, has been CANCELLED. The Hold Steady, Okkervil River, Ra Ra Riot, Wye Oak, The Felice Brothers, and many more were set to play what would have been the UK festival's second year in America. Though no official reason has been given, a source says it was not due to ticket sales, but rather related to a not-so-great turnout at the July UK version of the fest.

The result of too many festivals, a lack-luster line-up, and the Catskills.

"The truck is paid for."

One of the biggest lies a cowboy tells.

They can all come down to Raleigh and play the Hopscotch Festival. The line up is already bloated.

Maybe they should have a kickstarter fund pre-fest or have Vans pay for it or Converse by pushing cheap Chinese products on us.

Lame. I was excited for this, would have been my one chance to see the Fruit Bats without having to go all the way to Illinois or Oregon. Very disappointed.
