2000trees announces first wave of bands as early bird tickets sell out


2000 Trees Festival 2014

Gloucestershire’s multi-award-winning 2000trees Festival today announced its first wave of bands, just days after early bird tickets sold out in record time.
 
Ex-Reuben frontman Jamie Lenman will perform at the ‘Grass Roots Festival Award’ winner (UK Festival Awards 2013), held at Upcote Farm, near Cheltenham from July 10-12.
 
Hip hop and electronic beats duo Dan le Sac vs Scroobius Pip will headline the Thursday Early Entry night, with Gnarwolves, Johnny Foreigner, Ben Marwood, The Retrospective Soundtrack Players and Oxygen Thief (with full band) also booked for Thursday, which is when organisers invite back the festival’s favourite acts from previous years.
 
Tickets are now on general sale after early birds snapped up tickets at last year’s prices in just a few hours last week.
 
2000trees organiser James Scarlett said this year’s festival will have the best line-up yet and he was personally looking forward to the arrival of Jamie Lenman.
 
Jamie was described as ‘a proper actual genius’ by Front and his new album is a superb return to form of seemingly bottomless creativity and a gut-wrenchingly heavy array of tunes,” he said.
 
“We have it on good authority that he will be playing Reuben songs, so to say we’re delighted at 2000trees is a massive understatement. Our very own ‘Camp Reuben’, which is made up of super fans who come to 2000trees each year, will be very happy indeed.”
 
The festival will be announcing a further 80 acts in coming weeks and is looking forward to returning for its eighth incarnation this summer.
 
James Scarlett added: “I absolutely love the 2000trees Thursday night. It just somehow feels special, like you are part of a secret club of Trees fans. It’s the hard core. The Superfans! Not only do they get the best camping spots, but the atmosphere in the Cave is always electric – we’re all in it together.
 

“The theory behind Thursday is we get bands from previous years to return. We choose mostly bands that have been popular with the Trees crowd over the years and also the odd band that is a favourite of the organisers.”
