Frightened Rabbit will headline the Saturday night of this summer's 2000trees happening from Thursday 10th and run until Saturday 12th July at Upcote Farm, Withington, Cheltenham, in Gloucestershire.
Scott Hutchison, lead singer of Frightened Rabbit, said: "We are so excited to be returning to 2000trees this year. It was such a memorable show for us last time, the crowd was in fine voice and it was clear that everyone was there for the music. We hope for more of the same this summer - it truly is one of the best small festivals in Britain."
2000trees organiser Andy Rea added, "When we ask fans which acts they love, a great many names are suggested, which shows they know and love new and underground music as much as we do - and one of the most popular requests is always for Frightened Rabbit to return to 2000trees, so we're delighted to make that happen.
"The last time they performed the crowd reaction was immense and since then they have gone on to bigger things, so to have them back at 2000trees is a bit of a coup and we can't wait to see them perform live at Upcote Farm."
