Festival Description

2000trees brings together the very best in new and underground British music, it features more than 80 acts on four stages in the picturesque Cotswolds, plus comedy, DJs, headphone disco, quality and value food & drink, and a trader village.

The festival was named Grass Roots Festival at the latest UK Festival Awards – voted for by festival fans. In the Awards’ words: “Often the best small festivals spring from an organic labour of love and a long-time dream which has been shared by thousands more. These festivals should be celebrated, not just for the courage and vision shown by their organisers, but also because they never forget where they’ve come from, supporting their local communities and new music along the way while retaining an independent spirit and resisting commercial saturation.”

2000trees is also ‘A Greener Festival Award’ winner for its dedication to being one of the UK’s greenest festivals, set within the stunning backdrop of Upcote Farm, near Cheltenham.

Festival Dates July 11 - 13, 2013

Festival Story:

Created by a group of friends in 2007, the festival was borne out of frustration with the ever increasing corporate sponsorship and ‘musical merry-go-round’ nature of the larger mainstream British festivals. Disillusioned by extortionate ticket prices and over priced food and drink, this band of festival veterans vowed to take matters into their own hands and in true punk rock style set about developing the perfect antidote.
