2000trees: More Than Just A Music Festival

09 July 2019

How 2000trees became one of the best festivals in the UK.

Since its creation back in 2007, 2000trees Festival has gradually become one of the most impressive festivals the UK has to offer and until recently it seemed like one of the best kept secrets. Located in the luscious green Cotswold hills on Upcote Farm, Trees is a three day festival running in July from Thursday to Saturday with an abundance of great acts on their roster each year, across multiple stages including an intimate Forest Sessions stage in a tranquil woodland setting.

One of the best aspects of the festival is the friendly atmosphere and great sense of community, with tons of incredible musical acts, comedy, delicious food and drink and other activities across the three days, also supporting great organisations such as Samaritans, Safe Gigs For Women, Heads Above The Waves and Love Music Hate Racism. We were lucky enough to attend 2000trees in 2018 and can’t recommend it enough, especially if you’re a first time festival-goer and want to experience an extremely chilled out few days watching some of your favourite bands with like-minded music fans.

It’s no surprise that trees won the Grass Roots Festival Award on three different occasions and Best Medium Sized UK Festival in 2018, with the line up laden rich with talented artists both established and those on the come up, it’s a great place to stumble upon some of your new favourite bands. From a smaller band’s perspective this is a great chance to gain exposure to bigger crowds and share the stage with some of the veterans in the game, and from a fan’s point of view it’s so relaxed you might just bump into one of your idols walking around the site! We hope to see 2000trees thriving for years to come and if you haven’t yet experienced it, we highly recommend giving it a shot as you won’t be disappointed.

2000trees will be running from 11th-13th of July this year with Frank Turner & The Sleeping Souls, Deaf Havana and You Me At Six headlining.
