Today organisers promised that news of their biggest ever Friday night headliner, another 20 acts and something special that will only occur at this year’s 2000trees will all be announced soon.

Organiser James Scarlett said: “Mystery Jets have proven their mettle as live performers and developed a huge following as a result of being great to watch, we’re sure they will give us a great finale to Saturday night on the main stage.

“Last year they sold out the 5,000 capacity Brixton Academy so are a seriously huge band for a small festival like 2000trees. We are really pleased and hope that everyone enjoys them as much as we are going to.”

2000trees gives 5,000 music fans the chance to discover the very best new and underground British bands on four stages – plus comedy, DJs, quality food and drink and much more – in the picturesque Cotswolds.

According to organiser Andy Rea: “2000trees brings together the very best live performers from a wide range of genres, which makes it a genuinely exciting, eclectic line-up each and every year.

“We still have more than 20 acts to announce – including our Saturday night headliner – so we cannot wait for the summer to start.”
