2000trees Festival Announces First Batch Of Bands
For the first time in the festival’s existence, 2000trees will have bands playing the main stage on the Thursday night of their event. At The Drive In are to headline the opening day of the Cheltenham bash.
Also joining the bill are: Hell Is For Heroes, Creeper, Basement, Arcane Roots, Touché Amoré, Turbowolf and Gold Key.
“We’re very excited to announce that 2000trees Festival is now a full 3 day festival and for the first time ever we’ll be opening our main stage on the Thursday,” says festival organiser James Scarlett. “I can’t think of a better way to do this than with our headliners At The Drive In. Let’s not forget that this is a band that released arguably the most important rock album of the last 20 years (with ‘Relationship Of Command’) and influenced literally ALL our favourite bands in the process. That’s before I even mention their live show. The band are absolutely on fire right now, touring with the also brilliant Royal Blood on their recent UK dates together. At 2000trees Festival they’ll be playing a full length headline set and I for one cannot wait!”
