The third 2000trees Festival 2018 announcement is here, and as ever it selects some of the finest new bands, welcomes back some of the events very favourites and says howdy to some incredible festival newbies, both up and coming and established.

From BLACK PEAKS – 2000trees Festival has always been a very special festival to our band – it’s a proper music festival for proper music fans, the atmosphere is unlike anywhere else, and once again the lineup is amazing. We’ve played with and met some awesome people at this festival. We can’t wait to be back, and to bring some new tunes with us!”

From The XCERTS –  “We are wildly psyched to be returning to 
2000trees Festival this year. We hold the festival very dear to our hearts and this will be our 2nd time gracing the main stage. You better believe it’s going to be holy!”

From DREAM STATE: “Since starting this band, one thing we’ve always wanted to do was play 2000trees Festival! We go every year as fans of both the festival itself and the bands they book, so it was a pretty incredible moment for us to hear that we had been asked to play! To say that we cannot wait to perform is an understatement!”

From festival organiser James Scarlett – “We’ve gone big this year with our headliners, but the thing I’m the most proud of is the less well known, up-and-coming bands on the line up. 2000trees Festival is the place to discover your new favourite band so everyone needs to go and check out our Spotify playlist now.
