This year, on the 1st of August, there will be a record number of painted and artistically designed heavy-duty trucks from around the world in Tallinn Song Festival Grounds. Over 100 trucks from Europe have already given their permission to come visit the event this year. The main musical performer is the guitar legend from Motörhead – Phil Campbell.
Campbell has been playing 32 years with Motörhead and was its lead quitarist in 1984. After the 2015 death of Motörhead frontman Lemmy, he established a new band Phil Campbell and the Bastard Sons, featuring his three sons and vocalist Neil Starr. In addition to playing their own songs, the band also performs Motörhead’s most famous hits. On the main stage, there will be great Estonian bands and artists such as Anne Veski, Terminaator, Põhja-Tallinn and Ziggy Wild.
Truck Show, which is taking place for the sixth time at Tallinn Song Festival Grounds, brings together a parade of trucks for just one day a year. The event attracts fans of powerful lorries and extreme sports, leaders of heavy machinery, forestry and the car industry. Each lorry in the exhibit is a unique work of art, which took months if not years to complete. Most of them have built a dreamy, comfortable and most definitely enviable home inside.
There will also be an awesome entertainment program – stunt rider Arūnas Gibieža (LT), trial bike star Joachim Hindren (FIN), slackline world champion Jaan Roose (EST) and professional FMX rider Sebastian Westberg (FIN) will perform on August 1st. In addition, you will see adrenaline-rich drift and truck rally shows and an extremely fascinating motorcycle show by Cageriders (FIN).
The goal of the event is to increase awareness about the heavy-duty machine industry and to popularize it in the Baltics. Many transportation and machinery companies will take part. The guests will also have an opportunity to meet with many industry leaders and check out their products and services.
