2000trees have announced one of the hottest acts in the UK at the moment, You Me at Six as the Friday night headliner. After a trio of sell out London gigs in 2018 the Weybridge rock band are sure to pull in a big crowd for the three day festival in July at Upcote Farm near Cheltenham.
You Me at Six told us “We’re really looking forward to headlining 2000trees Festival this summer. We’ve heard many amazing things about the festival, in particular it’s unrivalled atmosphere and location. The lineup is always superb, so it’s going to be a pleasure to be a part of things this year. It’s going to be a special show.”
Festival favourite Jamie Lenman will be creating havoc in the Axiom with a Lenmania takeover. Opening, closing and curating the mini festival on the first day of 2000trees.
An enthusiastic Jamie Lenman said “I’m super excited to be bringing back Lenmania with a new twist and 2000trees is the perfect place to do it – a festival within a festival! The lineup of bands we’ve put together is completely awesome, from old buddies to new discoveries and everything in between, and it’s been great to get Trees’ input so we can assemble the best bill possible. It’s going to be immense!”
Amongst 33 acts in the first wave announcement were heavyweights Every Time I Die, While She Sleeps, and Therapy?. Plenty of room was left for great up and coming acts such as Estrons, Milk Teeth, Gouge Away, Phoxjaw, and Indoor Pets. Imperial Leisure will also be returning for another fun filled set. My Chemical Romance’s Frank Iero will also be making an appearance with his newly announced band, Frank Iero And The Future Violents.
2000trees Festival organiser James Scarlett said – “With 33 bands announced today there is a lot I’m excited about and I’d definitely like to point people in the direction of my new favourite band Gouge Away – they are absolutely incredible. Also a shout out is definitely needed for Every Time I Die who are playing their Hot Damn! album in full for the first time. And last but not least, Jamie Lenman has agreed to bring Lenmania to 2000trees and will be taking over the Axiom Stage all day on the Thursday with a selection of his favourite acts. In fact, he’ll be the very first act of the entire festival playing a special acoustic set and will also headline the stage with his full rock show. I can’t wait!”
This is already looking to be a cracker, building on a successful 2018 festival.
The multi-award winning festival takes place on Thursday 11th July, Friday 12th July and Saturday 13th July 2019, at Upcote Farm near Cheltenham in Gloucestershire.
