From 2000trees Festival organiser James Scarlett – ““I always get super excited when May finally roles around because it really feels like summer is coming. It’s only two months until 2000trees Festival and we’ve put together what I think is our biggest and best line up yet. We all know about the headliners but I really would urge people to investigate the other end of the line up where they can hopefully find their new favourite band. Some of my tips for this year are GroundCulture, Chapter and Verse, Bitch Falcon, Black Futures and Fangclub. All of them are amazing! And definitely check out mastersystem which is the new band from Scott and Grant of Frightened Rabbit plus members of Editors, Yourcodenameis:milo and Minor Victories. See you in July!”
