2000 Trees festival has released its released first line up announcement for 2015, and it looks pretty decent.
‘Alt-rock heroes’ Deaf Havana have been revealed as main stage headliners. Lead guitarist Chris Pennels has expressed his enthusiasm for the upcoming event, stating that Trees is ‘a festival we’ve always looked forward to one day playing, due to its solid line-ups of great British rock bands’. Also announced to play are Kerbdog, Pulled Apart By Horses and Arcane Roots. Organiser James Scarlett has said Trees have been ‘determined to hit the ground running with big band news as soon as tickets go on sale’ and is ‘delighted to announce these great acts that we’re sure our festival fans will love.’
Besides the big names on the bill, the other acts so far are The Computers, Rob Lynch, Big Sixes, Allusondrugs, Nothing But Thieves, &U&I, SOLEMN SUN, The Cadbury Sisters and Thrill Collins, Milk Teeth, The St. Pierre Snake Invasion, Bridges, Lonely Tourist and Rozelle.
Over previous years, Trees has hosted a variety of fantastic acts such as Frank Turner, Scroobius Pip, Tribes and The Subways, just to name a few. It’s a small scale affair that was borne out of a group of friends’ frustration with the cost, corporate sponsorship and repetitive lineups of larger mainstream British festivals.
2000 Trees 2015 will be taking place at Upcote Farm near Cheltenham between the 9-11th of July. Tickets are on sale now and at last year’s prices until midnight tomorrow. For tickets and more information, see our 2000trees guide.
