The mighty 2000trees Festival have announced even more bands and artists for the 2022 event. This announcement has a host of brilliant, established bands and 2000trees favourites, as well as 20+ wonderful new acts all about to play their first ever 2000trees Festival.
Leading the established charge are Australian cool as ice lads The Chats, The Wildhearts legend frontman Ginger, Brighton 3-piece (and creators of thes years wonderful As Blue As Indigo album) Tigercub, Welsh mega-anthem peddlers Dream State, as well as Blood Command, Delair The Liar, False Advertising, Fangclub, God Damn, Orchards, Phoxjaw and Roam.
From Earmon of The Chats – “After being stuck in Australia for nearly 2 years, I have never been more excited than to get out to the Cotswolds to drink some warm beer and play at what we’ve been told is the best festival in the UK.”
From Jamie of Tigercub- “2000trees Festival have been OG supporters of Tigercub. I remember the first time we played, I saw so many people wearing t-shirts of smaller alternative bands that I liked.. It seemed like this really was the place that people come to support upcoming music, I was proved right when I walked on stage later that afternoon as there was a full tent of people raging out of their minds to our set. This time around TC are stepping up to the mainstage and we couldn’t be more proud”
As a festival, 2000trees is dedicated to new music and promoting new and emerging talent, especially homegrown UK artists. The wonderful Idles played their first 2000trees back in 2016 on the festivals smallest stage, and will next year be the final (Saturday) main stage headliner. Something to aspire and be inspired by for all this years debut performers.
2022 British debutants include the incendiary, captivating and fast rising ZAND, Hastings (new) finest Kid Kapichi, Ithaca who are newly signed to Hassle Records and working on what will surely be one of 2022’s most exciting albums, Creeper guitarist and now solo artist in his own right Ian Miles and Witch Fever who are quite possibly one of ‘the’ most exciting new bands in the country right now. Joining them will be Bleak Soul, CHERYM, CLT DRP, Ditz, Dream Nails, Fresh, Gnarlah, Heriot, Hotel Lux, Leeched, Never Not Nothing, New Pagans, S.T. Manville, Superlove, Swim School, The Hara, The Luka State and Tokky Horror.
From 2000trees Festival booker James Scarlett – “The best thing about my job is booking up-and-coming bands that go on to be massive. We’ve had the likes of Idles, Slaves, Creeper and Nothing But Thieves when they were very new bands and it makes me excited to think about who the next wave of headliners might be in five years’ time… I’m going for Phoxjaw, Witch Fever and ZAND!”
They will all be joining already announced main stage headliners IDLES, JIMMY EAT WORLD and THRICE, as well as a host of already announced bands.
With even more bands still to announce, along with all of the Forest Stage, 2000trees Festival 2022 is already shaping up to be the hottest festival ticket of next summer.
