You may have noticed, but we’re quite big fans of 2000trees Festival here at On Record. They have an irritating knack of predicting the next big thing in the heavier music world. Don’t believe me? Just look at the year bands like Slaves have had.
So without further ado, let’s look at the artists Radio 1 will have just started playing this time next year:
The latest additions include Young Guns, The Skints, Bury Tomorrow and Defeater.
Alongside the likes of Deaf Havana, Idlewild, We Are The Ocean, The Subways and And So I Watch You From Afar will be Fort Hope, Boston Manor, Sam Russo, The Lion & the Wolf, Alice Phoebe Lou and Hannah Lou Clark.
There will also be special acoustic sets from The Subways, Arcane Roots and The Xcerts on the Forest Sessions stage.
Organiser Andy Rea said:
“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!”
“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 six stages of music, plus comedy, DJs, a silent disco, quality food and drink and children’s entertainment.
