2000trees, is a well set up independent festival that hosts a wide range of acts primarily from the new and underground British music scene. There is a wide selection of decent acts at the festival including something for every taste - featuring rock, metal and indie to folk, pop, DJs, and the downright strange.
2000trees Festival returns for a 11th year with an early entry night and will open on Thursday 6th and run until Saturday 8h July 2017 at Upcote Farm, Withington, Cheltenham, in Gloucestershire.
Acts confirmed include Slaves, Nothing but Thieves, Lower than Atlantis, Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes, Mallory Knox, The Front Bottoms, The Xcerts, The Wonder Years, The Menzingers, Honeyblood, Beach Slang, Jamie Lenman, Pulled Apart by Horses, Skinny Lister, Young Guns and many more.
For the details so far including day and stage splits please see the line-up page.
More than 100 live acts will entertain thousands of music fans with music on four stages, plus comedy, DJs, headphone discos, quality and value food & drink, children's entertainment and a trader village.
Tickets are on sale, currently priced at £110 for the 3 days including camping. Day tickets (£50) and 2-day tickets (£90) are also available. Campervan tickets £40.
This year's fancy dress theme is "2000trees on the high seas" (So think... surfers, pirates, mermaids, sea-life, rum & anything else from the briny depths).
The main fancy dress day is the Saturday.
The site is expected to open to Early Entry Pass holders from 1pm on Thursday, and opening hours for general admission tickets, will be from 8am onwards on the Friday, and the festival entertainment starts at midday on the Friday. The site will close at 2pm on Sunday.
The festival offers a terrific site wide Silent Disco with multiple DJs on offer and the chance to wander around the site listening to them based at three stages until 3am with much more differentiation in musical styles too.
Plus the usual regulars of crazy games like human size hungry hippos, a straw bale maze and the return of Swing Ball.
The site is well laid out and easy enough to navigate, and it's worth seeking out the late night secret venue. There are good food options and decent ales, ciders, lagers, and the like on offer in the bars. Whilst this festival is not specifically geared at providing much stuff for kids to do, it is still child friendly and kids are unlikely to get lost, although ear defenders are recommended for the little ones as it can get loud at times in the enclosed Cave stage. The festival does not allow campervans.
More information will be here when available.
