The wonderful acoustic stage at 2000trees Festival, The Forest Sessions Stage, can today reveal its full line up for 2019.
From 2000trees Festival organiser and main man James Scarlett –
“The Forest Sessions stage always throws up some of the real Trees highlights that linger long in the memory – for instance who can forget Frank Carter in 2017 or Rou from Enter Shikari last year. This year I’m particularly excited for Mull Historical Society (who will be joined on stage by Suede’s Bernard Butler), the brilliant death-gospel of A.A.Williams and most of all the absolute legend that is Andy Cairns from Therapy? Do not miss these sets!”

Deaf Havana / YONAKA / Holding Absence / Mull Historical Society (featuring Bernard Butler) / Grace Petrie / Cavetown / Murray Macleod (The Xcerts) / Tony Wright (Terrorvision) / Andy Cairns (Therapy?) / The Skints / Sullii / Press to MECO / Johnny Lloyd / Holiday Oscar / Non Canon / Brightr / Watercolours / Chas Palmer-Williams / Gaz Brookfield / B-Sydes / No Violet / Ducking Punches / Rob Lynch / A.A.Williams and Billy The Kid
