The golden child of British independent festivals, set on the picturesque farmland of Gloucestershire, 2000 Trees Festival really isn’t like any other festival that you may experience. Bringing together some of the best live acts, hay bails, and nights sat around fires, not to mention an acoustic forrest, it really is a weekend where life long memories are forged. But lets not all forget the main reason we’re here. The music. And whilst this year’s bill brags of some of the best national and international live acts to have appeared over the summer, here’s who WE think need to be on your MUST SEE list for this year!
Having been setting the world of hardcore alight with their timeless, Time & Space, the new kings of modern hardcore are bringing all the groove and funk to this year’s 2000 Trees festival. Get ready to swing limbs and jive all at the same time.
Electrifying hip hop and static punk, this two piece have become revolutionary in their approach to cross over genres and combine both sweaty punk shows and warehouse sized raves. Expect one of the most entertaining sets of the weekend from these two.
One of the most emotionally powerful bands in post hardcore, Touche Amore have become a cult favourite amongst the festival crowds. Having perfected the a beautifully chaotic live show, expect mass sign along choruses, stage dives, and everything you love about punk club shows.
Flying a strong flag for British alternative rock, Marmozets are going to be bringing it home this weekend. Their stadium sized choruses and electrifying anthems will be both wooing and captivating the crowds of 2000 Trees, and you can’t resist it.
With us having first discovered them during the festival season a few years back, it’s been no surprise that these hard indie anthems have been taking the festival crowds by storm. Lashes of epic sized choruses, and huge hooks, Black Foxxes are the ultimate crowd pleaser.
God didn’t save rock n roll, Funeral Shakes did. Putting the punk back into punk rock, Funeral Shakes will have you shimmying throughout the entire weekend as they bring smokin’ sized party anthems to the fields of Gloucestershire.
With a live show comparable, and almost at times rivalling the likes of Deftones and headliners At The Drive In, it won’t be long until Black Peaks are conquering the international festival stages with a melodic yet hard hitting barrage of tech-core.
Fighting the patriarchy with eerie Nine Inch Nails approved vibes, the highly rated experimental artist will have you reaching into even the darkest parts of your mind making it a performance not worth missing this weekend.
A band with the potential to headline the festivals with their folky-indie hits, Fatherson’s music celebrates every aspect of life with one of the most uplifting live performances you’ll ever see. Be ready to bring the tissues, and the beer, and the buds to this one.
Suzanne, we’re gonna watch bands holding cans. Or more specifically Creeper. Be prepared for a heat wave of purple and black punk, because these Southern punks are going to be leaving a mark so big on everyone that no amount of sunscreen will protect you.
Emo is having a revival, and Britain’s Basement are the ones leading it. The only downfall of this performance is that you’ll walk away with no voice left, and confused and in a daze about whether it was best to sway along or crowd surf.
AT THE DRIVE IN
When the festival organiser himself is ecstatic about booking this band, you know that this really is going to be something special. Headline the Friday night, the godfathers of post hardcore will be setting the bar high for not just their genre, but the entire line up this year.
