2000trees Festival 2022 have announced a raft of additions to their 2022 festival line up including their Saturday night headliner.
That main stage Saturday headliner will be the Idles, who last played the festival, on their smallest stage, only 6 years ago.
A further twenty bands for the event, including the wonderful Canadian punks Pup, reformed UK rock royalty Young Guns, US shoe gazers Hundreth. A UK festival exclusive in the form of Rolo Tomassi, politically-minded duo Bob Vylan and the superb Japanese metalcore masters Crossfaith. There is more too including Royal Republic, Kneecap, The Wytches, Haggard Cat, Vukovi, Beans on Toast and the impressive Press to Meco.
Mark Bowen of Idles “2000trees were one of the first festivals to book us way back in 2015 before we even had an album out, they always support new music and bring something fresh to their audiences, giving opportunities for artists to reach their audience. To give us the opportunity to return as headliners, as a bigger, better and more gnarlier beast is an absolute privilege.”
2000trees festival booker James Scarlett adds “If anyone wanted proof that 2000trees 2022 is going to be the biggest and best yet then look no further than our Saturday headliners Idles. They played on the Neu Stage back in 2016 so it’s pretty mad that a few years later they’ve grown big enough to headline the 2000trees main stage! It makes me very happy to see such a success story from an independent UK band. Also a quick word to the wise… more so than ever before, 2000trees is VERY likely to sell out VERY quickly this year. So if you want to come and party like it’s 2019 I’d suggest getting your ticket ASAP today! See you all in a field soon.”
So, Idles will be joining already announced main stage headliners Jimmy Eats World and Thrice. Plus there is still over 100+ more bands still to announce as well as all performers for The Forest Stage. James Scarlett is not wrong 2000Trees 2022 is going to be one hot ticket.
