2000trees Festival have announced the first main stage headliners for 2024, the incredible New Jersey-bred rock band THE GASLIGHT ANTHEM.
Like so many of the most essential rock bands, THE GASLIGHT ANTHEM have a rare gift for finding glory in the inescapable pain of being alive. The four-piece bring their soulful breed of punk, exploring everything from mortality to mental illness to the more precarious dimensions of human connection. In the tradition of their seminal sophomore album The ’59 Sound, The Gaslight Anthem’s sixth, and forthcoming full-length, ‘History Books’ ultimately achieves the tremendous feat of hitting every raw nerve while endlessly inspiring wildly triumphant singing-along.
THE GASLIGHT ANTHEM will headline Thursday 11th July and is a UK Festival Exclusive.
From 2000trees Festival booker, James Scarlett – “We’ve tried to book The Gaslight Anthem pretty much every year for the last 10 years, so we’re super stoked to have them joining us at Upcote Farm – we think they’re a perfect 2000trees headliner. The ’59 Sound in particular was a really important album to me so to finally have the band at 2000trees is going to be something special.”
