2000trees Festival 2014

Thursday 10th to Saturday 12th July 2014
Upcote Farm, Withington, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, GL54 4BL, England MAP
Daily capacity: 4,000

Dave McPherson, The Blackout, Cerebral Ballzy, Three Trapped Tigers, Darlia, Loom, and Dancing Years have been added to the line-up for the 2000trees happening from Thursday 10th and run until Saturday 12th July at Upcote Farm, Withington, Cheltenham, in Gloucestershire.

INME frontman Dave McPherson will be performing a solo set and said, “2000trees is more than a festival to me. Very fond personal memories aside, InMe & myself have always had the craziest fun shows there. I love the location, the interesting varied line-ups, the local produce (especially the ale) and most of all, the people that run it.

“It’s so obvious this is an extreme labour of love yet while being consummate professionals they're also a bunch of absolute welcoming sweethearts. I've played/attended most years since the debut, it is a 10/10 every time. Long live Trees!”

Festival headliners are yet to be revealed and organisers say excitement is building among fans, with ticket sales up on last year. 

Already announced are: Dan le Sac vs Scroobius Pip, Public Service Broadcasting, Jamie Lenman, Tall Ships, Wolf Alice, Canterbury, Arcane Roots, Itch, Blitz Kids, Hawk Eyes, Gnarwolves, Johnny Foreigner, Lonely the Brave, Natives, Dad Rocks!, &U&I, Slaves, The Virginmary’s, Ben Marwood, The Retrospective Soundtrack Players, Oxygen Thief, Radstewart, Winter Villains, VerseChorusVerse. 

More than 100 live acts will entertain thousands of music fans for two days of music on four stages, plus comedy, DJs, headphone discos, quality and value food & drink, and a trader village.

Organiser Andy Rea believes a shared passion for new and underground music is proving popular with fans, saying, "We promise to bring a depth and variety of acts together that is better than ever before, giving people the chance to discover their new favourite bands in a fun, affordable and friendly environment.

Early ticket sales reflect our commitment so everything is shaping up to be the best year yet, especially with the likes of Dave McPherson on board again, we love him!
