“If you love new music as much as we do, then you need to be at 2000trees this July, with 100 exciting acts hand-picked for six different stages, we promise you will find fresh sounds and great experiences to share with your mates!” said organiser Andy Rea.
“Tickets have been flying off the shelves and we are confident we will sell out ahead of time, which is tremendous for a small, independent festival – it shows music fans really believe in what we are doing down on the farm every summer!”
The three-day festival celebrates its ninth year near Cheltenham, on 9-11 July. It features the very best new and underground music on six stages, plus comedy, DJs, a silent disco, quality food and drink and children’s entertainment.
The 2000trees festival was described as “the best festival in the UK” by Soundboard, a “magnificent weekend” by Rock Sound magazine and “one of the best small festivals in the UK” by The Guardian.
