WOOD is TRUCK's folkier,cleaner and greener younger brother.
It's a celebration of music and nature in the beautiful surroundings of Braziers Park, Oxfordshire.
The TRUCKERS have grown up a lot since starting TRUCK 12 years ago and have created WOOD festival as a place to take their own young families - and WOOD has proved a hit in its first 2 years with those looking for an intimate family festival with great music.
It's also quite possibly Britain's greenest festival: it's 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!) and a stage made of, you guessed it, WOOD.
This year WOOD will be piloting the Industry Green standard to measure its carbon footprint and other impacts in tandem with the charity Julie's Bicycle.
As ever there is a strong and diverse line-up of (mainly) acoustic acts on 2 stages, with more than 30 acts over the weekend.
There will be opportunities for everyone (from children to grandparents!) to participate, with workshops covering everything from singing, woodcraft, yoga, knitting, story-telling, and thatching to making wallets from orange juice cartons, campfire sing-alongs and the now famous fancy dress parade, and a fantastic kids tent.
There are plenty of opportunities to learn about living a more sustainable lifestyle as well as joining in our lively lunchtime discussions and talks. WOOD even has its own organic caf serving delicious locally-sourced food and it's own pub, THE HIPPY ARMS, selling locally-produced lager, ale and cider.
