2000 Trees Review – The Best Acts I Saw Over The Weekend

2000 Trees started off in a romantic way with the wedding of two fans who had met at the event 5 years ago and got engaged there last year and love was definitely in the air between the crowds and the bands with all bands getting a good reception during their sets.

I’ve taken my pick of the best of the acts I saw over the weekend for a review.

Interview With Hacktivist At 2000 Trees Festival 2015

Combining a wide variety of genres such as Rap, Grime, Metal and Rock, Hacktivist have always been different. Crusading on the goal to create music what they want to hear and not fall into the ‘they sound like this band’ category, it is fair to say they are hellbent on being the individuals.

Fresh off the back of causing carnage at The Cave stage that saw the crowd lap every song of the set I had a chat with Hacktivist and here it is…

Interview With Nothing But Thieves At 2000 Trees Festival 2015

With just two EP’s released, their rise to where they are has been nothing short of amazing. Their talent has seen them touted as “the next big thing” of Alternative Rock and with an album scheduled for an October release, the end of this year could be their breakout.

Straight after their sensational set, Brad grabbed a chat with the guys and here it is!

Interview With Allusondrugs At 2000 Trees Festival 2015

Quite possibly one of the most spectacular upcoming bands in the UK right now. Their concoction of psychedelic vibes and grunge undertones fused with catchy hooks and lyrics make for their songs to be some of the most infectious you’ll ever likely to hear. Possessing a party-like stage presence and renowned for quality performances Allusondrugs will be brilliant…even if they should have gone to Uni.

Straight after their set on the Axiom stage, Brad managed to have a rather hilarious chat with the band.

Interview With Pulled Apart By Horses at 2000 Trees Festival 2015

Brad managed to grab a chat with lead guitarist, James Brown to talk about whats been happening with Pulled Apart By Horses, playing Leeds Festival and the upcoming new album.

Interview With WOAHNOWS at 2000 Trees Festival 2015

Woahnows have had quite some year, Brad had a chat with the band at this years 2000 Trees Festival and here it is in all its glory.
