With just days to go until 2000trees 2018 kicks off at the (hopefully) sunny Upcote Farm in Cheltenham, the festival have given us a round-up of what we can expect at this year’s extravaganza!
Of course we have the dozens of incredible artists on show, including headliners Enter Shikari, At The Drive In and Twin Atlantic being joined by the likes of Creeper, Jamie Lenman, Arcane Roots, Marmozets, Moose Blood, Black Peaks and dozens more!
Festival organiser James Scarlett says; “There is a lot happening at 2000trees Festival this year. Not only do you get 130 of the best rock bands on the planet, but we also spend a huge amount of time curating a festival that truly is the best party you’ve ever been to, in the most relaxing and beautiful location. Late night activities include our ever popular silent disco plus an exciting new addition this year… Noisey Karaoke. And if chilling is your thing then maybe try some sunset yoga, or go and relax at our stunning Forest Stage watching sets from the likes of Enter Shikari and Jamie Lenman. And if in doubt, just have a wander around our incredible range of hand-picked food vendors. I’m 100% convinced this is going to be the best 2000trees Festival yet!”
To help you out with planning your weekend, 2000trees have been nice to us and provided a clash finder!
There will also be a special ‘Camp Frabbit’ set up at the festival in tribute to Scott Hutchinson. The frontman of Frightened Rabbit and Mastersystem tragically passed away earlier this year. Both bands are long time friends of the festival and were due to perform across the weekend. Another special tribute will come at 14:25 on the Friday in the Forest where there will be special guest performances to celebrate Scott’s legacy.
The fan created busking stages in the campsites will have their own little acoustic section of the village this year, where all the ‘busk boxes’ will be nearby, where there may be special performances from the artists and also gives fans a chance for a sing-along. You’ll find us for some sing-a-longs at one/all of the Camp Turner, Camp Rueben, Camp Marwood and Camp Frabbit over the course of the weekend!
2000trees has gone 100% cashless this year! This means that everything you can purchase, will be purchased using the RFID wristband system!
After the music has finished, there will be silent disco’s on both the Cave stage and Main stage on the Friday and Saturday while Noisey Rock Karaoke takes place on the Neu Stage!
There are a whole host of family-friendly activities including the Forest School’s return and activities including breakfast-ercise, Babel Babies, Rocking the Ukulele sessions and Flea’s yurt of fun! There will also be yoga and crazy golf, poetry and quizzes and games! This year’s fancy dress theme is ‘bees’ so get your thinking caps on!
