2000Trees Festival have today announced 36 new bands to the already stellar lineup OF Jimmy Eat World, Knocked Loose, Creeper, Hot Milk & more.
Following on from their recent hugely acclaimed new album ‘The Deadbeat Bang of Heartbreak City’, as well as a European tour with Jawbreaker and US tour with The Goo Goo Dolls, BEACH SLANG return to 2000trees Festival for the first time since 2017. Expect Cheap Trick meets The Replacements style emotional and melodic scuzzy punk rock, as well as one of the most honest and hard working front men in rock in the shape of guitarist/vocalist (and ‘Mr’ Beach Slang), James Alex.
Also announced today are NOVA TWINS. Refusing to conform to any template, the duo fuse bass-heavy, grimey rave sounds, taking inspiration from artists as divergent in style as N.E.R.D., The Prodigy, Missy Elliott, and New York Dolls. As such, the best friends have turned rock on its head, injecting their songs with boundless energy, barely controlled rage and heavy riffs. Nova Twins are capturing a unique moment in time with their genre-bending methods, capturing fans of all demographics with a riotous attitude and boundless resilience.
Californian five-piece punk band SPANISH LOVE SONGS will be making their 2000trees debut this summer. The band recently released their third album ‘Brave Faces Everyone,’ which has received rave reviews across the board and supported The Menzingers on their UK headline tour. You can expect brilliant melodies, soul-bearing lyrics and punk energy from this much adored band.
“The album of the year so far for me is ‘Brave Faces Everyone’ by Spanish Love Songs, and this is closely followed by the brilliant ‘The Deadbeat Bang of Heartbreak City’ by Beach Slang. Absolute bangers both of them and I can’t wait to hear these songs in the sunshine at Upcote Farm!” says booker James Scarlett.

What we got up to in 2019
In 2019 we banned plastic and introduced the GreenGoblet cup scheme. This all contributed to a 6 tonne reduction in waste from the previous year. We also had Frank Water for the first time and over the course of the weekend, Frank Water served just over 6,700 litres of chilled filtered water from our kiosks. This means that around 13,500 single use plastic bottles that haven’t ended up in landfill or our oceans.
2000Trees Festival is partnering with two fantastic charities this year. Stay tuned for how you can get involved in the coming months.
Attitude is Everything (registered charity number 1121975) works in partnership with audiences, artists and the live music industry to improve Deaf and disabled people’s access to live music. “I’m thrilled that 2000Trees are the first music company to announce how they are going to ‘play their part’ in Attitude is Everything’s 20th Anniversary next year. 2000Trees have chosen us as one of their charity partners: fans and guests of the festival will be able to donate to us when purchasing their tickets.” Suzanne Bull MBE, CEO.
TREE AID helps people in the drylands of Africa to lift themselves out of poverty and protect their environment. People here live in some of the toughest conditions on earth and trees are essential to their survival. Trees provide nutrition, generate income and help to create a healthy environment. TREE AID works with local communities to help them protect and grow trees, for themselves and for future generations.
