Festival organiser James Scarlett says; “We had a phenomenal 10th anniversary last year. The atmosphere was so special and the feedback was just incredible, so it was always going to be a tough task to top that, but ALL our efforts have gone into doing just that and we are unbelievably excited for 2017. As a 100% independent festival, we have always sought to maintain the intimate, friendly and fun vibe that sets smaller events apart and we are growing organically with amazing ideas in the pipeline to help
2000trees Festival to really flourish as one of the best small festivals in the UK”
2000 Trees takes place at Upcote Farm, Cheltenham on July 6-8 2017.
