the brilliant 2000trees Festival can announce a whole more bands, acts and artists for their 2023 event. This announcement comes at the end of the now annual 7 Days Of Trees week, with a new band being announced every day for 7 days on a different platform each day.
Heading up this announcement are the stunning US emo rock band American Football who are taking time away from supporting The 1975 to play our wonderful festival.
Also announced are Californian rock band Eagles Of Death Metal, Sacremento punk band Destroy Boys, the wonderful Belgians Brutus, Detroit ‘high voltage’ rock band par excellence Electric Six and one of the very best British bands around at the moment, with a string of incredible new singles recently released, Brighton band Black Honey.
We also have, fresh from supporting the mighty Gojira, one of the UKs best heavy bands Employed To Serve, Welsh alternative band The Joy Formidable, Dutch rockers De Staat (whose ‘Witch Doctor’ single lives rent free in my head 24/7),the exceptional Brighton act Tigercub, fast rising Brit metal band Heriot, powermetal meets hip hop meets soul meets everything excellent band from LA Zulu, LA hardcore band Militarie Gun and even more more more.
From James Scarlett, 2000trees Festival organiser and booker – “For us, seeing fans just as excited about the bands lower down the line up as they are about the bigger artists is what 2000trees is all about, and this announcement is no different. Heriot and Kneecap were big personal highlights from 2000trees 2022, so to be able to have Heriot return to smash the Main Stage and Kneecap bringing the carnage to the Forest Stage is going to be something special! And there’s still two headliners to come sooner than you might think…”
