Festival season is heating up, with more and more festivals announcing their line-ups for this year over the past couple of weeks.
For award-winning 2000trees Festival, the big names just keep coming! Following on from the first wave of bands announced at the end of January, they’ve just announced another 28 new acts who will be taking up residence in the picturesque Cotswolds when it returns on July 9-11. Some of the top names include The Xcerts, We Were Promised Jetpacks, Cleft, The Twilight Sad, Turbowolf, The Amazing Snakeheads, Feed the Rhino, Jonah Matranga and Tellison.
Headliners Deaf Havana will also be joined by Nai Harvest, Fatherson, Only Rivals, When We Were Wolves, Dead Harts, To The Wall, Ghouls, WOAHNOWS, Samoans, Emperor Yes, These Ghosts, Goan Dogs, Jurassic Pop, George Wilding, New Palace Talkies, Bite the Buffalo, Tim Vantol, Electric River and Human Pyramids.
Add this to the names already announced like Kerbdog, Pulled Apart by Horses, SOLEMN SUN, Arcane Roots, The Computers, Rob Lynch, Big Sixes, Allusondrugs, Nothing But Thieves and &U&I and you’re looking at quite the line-up!
There’s been a definite buzz around the festival on social media sites, something which organiser James Scarlett touches on in their latest press release.
“The reaction to the line-up has been fantastic, especially our latest headliner Deaf Havana, mustering loads of support online and receiving plenty of media attention, which means a lot to a small festival like us…It’s an exciting, energy laden line-up that we’re sure our festival fans will love and is sure to blow away the musical cobwebs come July, so we’re really looking forward to announcing more acts as soon as we can in coming weeks.”
I got my first taste of 2000trees at last year’s festival, and had such a great time. Along with its sister festival ArcTanGent, it’s now likely to become a yearly tradition for me. So what do you think of those names announced? Let us know! Get in touch via our Facebook and Twitter!
