Having toured the globe almost non-stop since the release of UK and US top 10 charting album, Life’s Not Out To Get You, back in August 2015, Wrexhams favourite son’s and pop punk royalty NECK DEEP can now be announced on the 2000trees Festival line up. Expect modern day anthems, non stop smiles and the best time ever. “Really looking forward to 2000trees Festival. There are some great bands on the lineup that are sure to make it a fun time. There is something really special about British festivals for us and I can’t wait to get on that stage!” – Fil from NECK DEEP
Fresh off their reunion tour with Enter Shikari and now with critically acclaimed new EP Off With Their Heads just released, THE KING BLUES are well and truly back, and ready to lay waste to 2000trees Festival once again, having played way back in 2008!
LA legends THE BRONX return to 2000trees Festival in 2016 with the tag of being one of the best bands the festival has ever had. It may well be 3 years since the release of their last studio album (as The Bronx, and not Mariachi El Bronx), but through constant touring, festival appearances and support tours, the band have managed to stay the course as one of the most exciting and most in demand punk bands on the planet. Viva la Bronx!!!!
The brilliant LONELY THE BRAVE will be gracing 2000trees Festival this year and are currently readying the release of their brand new, upcoming second album Things Will Matter, coming May 20th on Hassle Records. The band also have huge new single ‘Radar’ out now (already an Annie Mac Radio 1 ‘Hottest Record’) and will be following their winter 2015 UK/European tour with Black Peaks with some April and May headline shows, as well as more live dates coming up throughout the rest of the year.
Following the release of recent, brand new album Promise Everything (which is surely already a contender for album of 2016), BASEMENT head off on a huge US headline tour in the next couple of months with Turnstile and Defeater in tow, before coming back here for the summer and playing festivals across Europe including a very much anticipated debut at 2000trees Festival.
Riding a wave of unbelievably ace reviews (including a 5/5 from Kerrang! Magazine), HECK return to 2000trees Festival with newly released debut album Instructions (released March 11th through NPAG INDUSTRIES) under their belts. “2000trees Festival was one of our best shows of 2014. And now they’re ruddy having us back. Crafty badgers.” Matt Reynolds – Vocals/Guitar
Also joining the line up will be Dutch rock masters JOHN COFFEY, UK goth rockers DEAD!, the brilliant TERRIBLE LOVE, super cool rockers BLACK HONEY, fast rising 3 piece PRESS TO MECO, anthemic wonderment from THE GHOST RIDERS IN THE SKY and BELLEVUE DAYS and the now solo JIM LOCKEY.
