It looks like 2000Trees Festival is set to still go ahead this July, with this year’s headliners today announced as AFI and Thrice, who join previously announced headliners Jimmy Eat World.
For Californian punk rockers AFI, this will be their first UK appearance in three years, while Thrice will be providing a European exclusive, playing Vheissu in full. AFI will headline on Friday 10th July, with Thrice closing the main stage on Saturday 11th July.
Other acts that have been added to the line-up today include The Chats, Against The Current, Anti-Flag, Lonely the Brave, Royal Republic, Black Peaks, Crossfaith, Kneecap, Saint Agnes, Orchards, Chubby & The Gang, Leeched, Beachtape, Gnarlah and Fresh.
A word from James Scarlett, festival organiser:
“Clearly these are difficult times in the World and indeed, the festival industry and it would seem that uncertainty is everyone’s new normal. However as it stands, we’re still super hopeful that 2000trees 2020 can go ahead in July as planned. Obviously we don’t have a crystal ball though, so we are looking into all possible options and should the ban on gatherings continue for the next few months, we may have to look at moving 2000trees to later in the year. But again, as it stands, we sincerely hope this won’t be necessary. As people can probably imagine, you don’t just magic a festival out of thin air the week before, therefore we are continuing to work behind the scenes on 2000trees 2020. This way we can make sure that, when we get the green light, we have everything in place to host an amazing party for everyone. And for an amazing festival, you obviously need headliners!
With that in mind, we’re very excited to let everyone know that when this has all passed, AFI and Thrice will be joining Jimmy Eat World as 2000trees headliners. Not only that, but we also have 16 more bands to get excited about.
For now though, the most important thing we can all do is keep looking after ourselves and in turn others, take advice from the experts and support the most vulnerable in our communities. Big love to everyone.”
