Creeper, Boston Manor and more set for 2000trees 2020


Creeper, Boston Manor and Knocked Loose are among 42 new bands added to the line-up for 2000trees 2020.

The annual rock festival is returning to Upcote Farm in Cheltenham, England, between July 9 and July 10.

Following the announcement that Jimmy Eat World will headline the Thursday night, a whole host of other bands have been confirmed, including the Southampton punk rock group - who have worked their way up the line-up over the past few years - the Bad Machine' rockers, and US hardcore punk outfit.

Creeper's frontman Will Gould commented: “2000trees is my favourite of all the UK festivals.

“It’s really awkward saying that, because you don’t want to upset the other festivals, but it’s one of the first ones that took a chance on us when we began.

"We played there in 2015 [on the Cave stage], then played the main stage, then came back and headlined the second stage in 2018.

"So we’ve had a long history with that festival.

“They help young, small bands to get a start by offering them a platform, so it’s always been my goal to come back.

"This year, it’s the biggest slot they’ve ever given us, second from top on the main stage. At this stage in our career – with a second album that’s not even out yet – that means a lot.

"I think the festival aligns with the values and ethics of the band, which is really cool.”

The Amazons

The stacked bill also includes the likes of The Amazons, Dinosaur Pile-Up,, The Get Up Kids, Young Guns, Silverstein, Dream State, COUNTERFEIT., Black Futures, ROAM, Hot Milk, VUKOVI, SHVPES.

Booker James Scarlett commented:“We’ve been overwhelmed by the early bird ticket sales for 2020 and we’re definitely on the way to a sell-out year.

"I’m very proud of the line up we’ve put together and I think it shows the usual 2000trees mix of classic bands, new bands breaking big and your-favourite-new-band you are about to discover.

"So check out the Trees Spotify playlist, grab a ticket and we’ll see you at sunny Upcote Farm in July!”
