The award winning 2000 Trees Festival have announced that their first headliner for 2020 is none other than the colossal Jimmy Eat World. The announcement follows the release of the group's excellent tenth full length record, Surviving.

A celebration of contemporary and alternative music as a whole, 2000 Trees has grown massively since it's humble inception in 2007, with the Cotswold festival now being one the major events in the summer festival s...

With ArcTanGent having just celebrated it's massive seventh consecutive year and with 2000 Trees being championed with plaudits and awards on high, it's no surprise that these festivals are the fastest growing events within the UK.

Opening with ‘Ecstacy’, the four-piece from Sweden, Normandie (8), immediately got a pit going. Combining unusual synths with big riffs and catchy choruses, Normandie’s sound made their set really enjoyable. A large majority of their audience knew their lyrics, and Normadie were all bouncing around the stage as they played. Frontman Philip Strand worked the crowd easily, getting them to jump and sing at his command. Since the r...

Bristolian singer/songwriter Gaz Brookfield’s (8.5) vibe fit perfectly with the Forest Stage’s intimate setting. His songs were perfectly crafted stories, capturing the attention of his audience. Technical issues prompted Brookfield to head into the middle of the crowd after one song, resulting in a huge singalong. From the amusing ‘The Diabetes Blues’ to the sombre ‘Tale of Gunner Haines’, Brookfield’s set and chatter between...

Bristol math rock three-piece Sœur’s (7.5) first set of the weekend was colossal. The harmonies of vocalist/guitarists Tina Maynard and Anya Pulver were hauntingly beautiful, a perfect juxtaposition with their meaty riffs. They flew through old favourites including ‘Fight’ and ‘Slow Days’ and treated us to newer material too. Their latest single, ‘Do What I Want’ sounded huge with the audience singing the words back to the band....

Manchester three-piece False Advertising are just gearing up for a busy summer of festivals and fun. After a run of dates with the mighty Jamie Lenman, they played at 2000 Trees festival as part of Jamie Lenman’s Lenmania II. We sat down with them after their set to chat all things recording, inspiration, and what’s next for the three.
