Is this our final 2000Trees lineup announcement? Because honestly, if they add any more bands now, we might just pass out. Not only have a whole host of amazing new bands been added to the bill, but the lovely folks from our favourite Gloucestershire weekender have also let us know who’s playing which day, so now we get to speculate about which day might be the best.
One look at Thursday’s artists and it seems like a shoo-in – Sound of Pen faves like Palm Reader, Press to Meco, and the ethereal Dream State, join metal heavyweights While She Sleeps before a headline set from 2000trees veteran Frank Turner and the Sleeping Souls. Couldn’t get any better, right? Well on Thursday alone, the lineup proves that our favourite festival is as talent-packed and diverse as ever, offering sets from the electrifying LIFE, the incendiary Soeur, and scorching sounds of Turnstile, to name but a few.
Friday’s headliner, the immense You Me At Six, follow a day of bands as brilliant as they’re set to be. Whether you’re into punk, indie rock, metal, post-hardcore – there’s something for everyone at 2000trees, and it comes in the form of Friday’s lineup. New additions we’re particularly excited about include the consistently great Drug Church, who have wowed recently on support slots and headline shows alike, the iconic Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly and the “loud and proud” Heavy Lungs.
So Thursday’s wowed us, Friday’s wowed us – Saturday can’t wow us yet again, surely? Wait! It can! Our headliner has finally been announced and it’s the incredible Deaf Havana. We hope the people of Gloucestershire are fans, because whether they come to the festival or not, they’re definitely going to be hearing DH fans singing back anthem after anthem. Earlier in the day, as well as previously-announced pulling factors Frank Iero, Muncie Girls and Spielbergs, we’ve got the likes of Can’t Swim and Delaire, The Liar, to fill up the last (hopefully) sun-soaked day.
Nope. There’s no way we can possibly pick a best day out of those three, we’ll just have to go down and find out – and so should you!!!
