This week’s edition of The Colour of Vinyl on Melksham Town Sound focussed on one of the finest festivals this country has to offer; 2000trees.
Set just outside Cheltenham in the Cotswold Hills, 2000trees is a 5,000 capacity festival doing things the right way – over 80 of the best new and underground rock and indie acts, with a few established names thrown in for good measure. On top of that, the atmosphere is fantastic, and the choice in locally sourced food, ciders and beers is superb for a festival of its size.
Quoted as one of the “top 10 small festivals” by The Guardian and “a festival set up by festival lovers for festival revellers… it might be small but it packs a punch” by Virtual Festival, 2000trees and its organizers are gaining well deserved recognition for the hard work they put in throughout the year to put on an event of the festival’s quality. Last year they won the “Grass Roots Festival” award for the second time (first winning in 2010) and have also been shortlisted for Best Small Festival 4 times, as well as making the final of of Fans’ Favourite Festival list.
With all that in mind, I thought it extremely apt to dedicate a week of The Colour of Vinyl to this fabulous festival, celebrating it’s 2014 line up and hopefully enlightening a few who may not have heard of this event.
You can grab tickets for 2000trees right here, see you in July!
