From THE WONDER YEARS: "We're incredibly excited to be getting back to England so quickly after our recent headliner to do this wonderful festival."

 

 

From Will Gardner of BLACK PEAKS: "Without a doubt 2000trees has to be one of our favourite UK festivals here at camp BP. We have had the most unbelievable experiences playing there over the years and have worked our way up through the ranks. Now to be asked to come back and play the main stage at trees is not only a privilege but an honour. We have always felt so very at home with 2000trees, be it with the other bands, the incredible audience or the crew working there, we always feel like a gigantic family whenever we are there. We cannot wait to play this gig and i believe we are planning to stick around and party for the whole weekend with everybody this time. Very, very exciting."

From James Alex of BEACH SLANG: "The first thing I was ever told about 2000 Trees was that it was started by some friends putting on a festival because they were tired of overpaying for the thing they love—music. And I thought, "Fuck yeah! I want to play that." Look, there will always be a pack of believers cutting through the muck of art & capitalism, a gang of chargers remembering why all this stuff really matters. 2000 Trees, thanks for being one of them."

From Thom GNARWOLVES: "This year we will be playing 2000 trees for the 3rd time. We love coming back to play because the response is always so great. They put a lot of effort into championing independent UK bands and the atmosphere is awesome! Plus, we're in the big boy font on the poster for the first time, which is very exciting."
