Earmon of The Chats said: “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.”
Jamie from Tigercub said: “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”
They will be joining headliners Thrice, Idles and Jimmy Eat World as well as: The Amazons, PUP, Dinosair Pile-up, Knocked Loose, The Get Up Kids, Young Guns, Anti-flag, Royal Republic, Rolo Tomassi, Laura Jane Grace, Lonely the Brave, Crossfaith, Stick To Your Guns, No Devotion, Deez Nuts, The Wytches, Kneecap, Vukovi, Bob Vylan, Chubby & The Gang, Beans on Toast, Will Varley, Hundredth, Lauran Hibberd, False Advertising, Press To MECO, Blood Command, Haggard Cat, Baby Dave, Lizzy Farrall, Lande Hekt and Katie Malco.
Festival booker James Scarlett said: “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!”
