Emo-punk veterans Alkaline Trio have been revealed as the Saturday night mainstage headliner for 2000trees festival.

Also announced today are Future of the Left, Benjamin Booker, VENNART (formerly Oceansize) and Hacktivist.

They join other acts among the 100-strong bill include Idlewild, We Are The Ocean, Young Guns, And So I Watch You From Afar, The Skints, Kerbdog, Pulled Apart By Horses, Arcane Roots, The Xcerts, Bury Tomorrow, The Twilight Sad, We Were Promised Jetpacks, Turbowolf, Feed the Rhino and Defeater.

Organiser Andy Rea said: “To say we’re delighted is a massive understatement, because for many rock fans Alkaline Trio defined a summer with their album ‘From Here To Infirmary and songs like ‘Private Eye’ and ‘Stupid Kid’ are pop-punk anthems known the world over”

“In fact we’re proud of the outright brilliance of all the acts across our line-up and it is undoubtedly the best we’ve ever had in terms of diversity across six stages, from internationally famous names to local heroes.”

Tickets can be purchased from the festival’s website.
