Stornoway
The line-up will also include Adebisi Shank, Stealing Sheep, Nine Black Alps, Fight Like Apes, HildaMay, Childhood, Beans on Toast, Cold Crows Dead, Brontide, Sky Larkin, Park Bench Society, Bovine, Wot Gorilla?, The Family Rain, Emperor Yes, Portasound, The Physics House Band, and Her Name is Calla.

Further acts confirmed today are John J Presley , Bats, Hot Feet, Gnarwolves, The Retrospective Soundtrack Players, Empress, Black Moth, Crash Of Rhinos, Landscapes, Grappler, Bear Cavalry, and Woahnows.

Organiser James Scarlett said, "This year could be the best line-up we've ever had. It has the usual mix of indie and folk plus every genre of rock you could imagine. Some old favourites who have played previously will return and more importantly there will be lots of fresh new blood - so 2000trees is definitely the place to discover your favourite new band."

And it seems the bands themselves are equally excited. InMe frontman Dave McPherson said: "We're over the moon to join this year's 2000trees Festival! I personally have incredibly fond memories playing there both with InMe and solo. The Trees team is fun and friendly, yet also do a fantastic job and are passionate about doing things properly. I always love the wonderfully diverse line-ups, the local produce and the beautifully scenic site itself. We're only playing a few shows this year so for 2000trees to be one of them is a no brainer for us! Come party with us on and off stage!"

And So I Watch You From Afar's Chris Wee continued this theme: "We're honestly thrilled to be playing 2000trees for the third time. It has to be one of the best atmospheres we've encountered. We love coming back to play as we are always treated so well and the fans are incredible - they almost blew the roof off the tent in 2011 so hopefully it's the same this year!"

The first acts confirmed for this year are Future of the Left, The Xcerts, Gallops, Max Raptor, Freeze the Atlantic, and Empire, who will all appear on early entry Thursday. No other acts have been announced yet. More than 80 live acts will entertain thousands of music fans for two days of music on four stages, plus comedy, DJs, headphone disco, quality and value food & drink, and a trader village.

The festival has sold out for the last three years. According to organiser Andy Rea tickets are selling like hotcakes: "Tickets for our Thursday Early Entry Evening are almost sold out and standard weekend tickets are flying too, it's all pretty exciting here right now. Plus we have booked some pretty special headliners for the main stage which we're keeping under our hats until later on, to give our hard core 2000trees fans the chance to buy tickets first."

A weekend ticket is priced at £72. Children aged 0 to 10 years old can go free but require a ticket and children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. An early entry ticket is priced at £15, and a joint ticket with ATG is priced at £115 - sold out, or £136 with Y-Not.
