The award winning and universally lauded 2000 Trees Festival have confirmed a mammoth 36 artists for 2020 today. As anticipated, it’s an utter stormer of an announcement.
Joining a line-up that’s already composed of heavy hitters such as Jimmy Eat World, Knocked Loose, Creeper and many more are the Californian punk jumpstarts Spanish Love Songs, the template defying powerhouse that is Nova Twins and the ever enigmatic The World Is A Beautiful Place & I’m No Longer Afraid To Die.
Also joining the bill this morning are Beach Slang, Demob Happy, Hundredth, Airways, Hotel Lux, Together Pangea, The Virginmarys, Haggard Cat, Fangclub, ‘68, DITZ, Stake, Static Dress, Erica Freas, Delaire The Lair, S.T. Manville and Chloe Moriondo.
They will also be joined by fellow newcomers Bob Vylan, Bent Knee, Gatherers, Giver, Tom Jenkins, Harry Marshall, InTechnicolour, Grief Ritual, Superlove, Sapphire Blues, Lande Hekt, Katie Malco, Holiday Oscar, Non Canon, and Andrew Cushin. “The album of the year so far for me is Brave Faces Everyone by Spanish Love Songs, and this is closely followed by the brilliant The Deadbeat Bang of Heartbreak City by Beach Slang” Says festival organiser James Scarlett. “Absolute bangers both of them and I can’t wait to hear these songs in the sunshine at Upcote Farm!”
2000 Trees 2020 takes place at it’s usual home of Upcote Farm, Cheltenham, between the dates of July 9th – 11th. There’s still plenty of bands to come, with two headliners yet still to be announced. Despite this, tickets are already flying out. Tickets and joint tickets with it’s sister festival ArcTanGent can be purchased via the festival’s website here.
