From Moose Blood front man, Eddy Brewerton – “I really enjoyed playing an acoustic set each day on warped tour and haven’t done it since, can’t wait to do it again”

From Krokodil guitarist Daniel P Carter – “Stoked to be playing 2000trees Festival, the line up and vibe looks so sick. It’ll be good to bring some crushing riffs to such a beautiful setting…”

From The Xcerts front man, Murray McLeod – “We were fortunate enough to be asked to play the acoustic stage last year before our main stage appearance and in typical XCERTS fashion, myself and Jordan nearly blew it. Our tour manager was busy setting up our gear for the slot later on in the day and he sent myself and Jordan to find the acoustic stage with us assuring him we’d be fine. Of course we weren’t fine. 2 space cadets wandering aimlessly through the forest in search of a stage which we were convinced didn’t actually exist and we had in fact been set up in a conspiracy to get rid of us from sweet Mother Earth does not constitute as ‘fine’. So this year will be stress free and a little less rushed. We may even play a new song…..or we might get mauled by a bear. Hard to say.”

From Jamie Lenman – “I’m very excited to be coming back to 2000 Trees in its anniversary year and to be doing something different than usual. Two sets in one day – the first, on the Forest stage will be a whole set of covers and then later on the Axiom stage playing all originals. It’s a great vibe and I’m looking forward to seeing everyone again”

From Monarks front man, Sam – “We are extremely excited to be playing alongside some of our favourite bands at 2000trees Festival Including Vant, Twin Atlantic and The Xcerts. We’ve been waiting over the last couple of years for a slot at this festival and we feel that this year is the perfect time for us to get up and smash it with some massive bands.”
