UK Festival Guide: 2000Trees Festival

Image Source
It's not just the big festivals who are showcasing some of the best music around nowadays. There's a new breed of small, independent festivals cropping up across the country, who are securing some of the best bands for a fraction of the price of some of the better known events. This year is my first time heading to 2000Trees festival, and after checking out previous line ups I feel like a fool for never going before! Kicking off in 2007, it's now the 9th year and has had some of my favourite bands on their stages; including Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster and Alkaline Trio!


UK Festival Guide: 2000Trees Festival 



WHERE: Upcote Farm, Withington, Cheltenham
WHEN: 7th July - 9th July
WHAT: Metal, rock and alternative for a fraction of the price of other festivals.

PROS:
As a smaller, independent festival you can buy your tickets safe in the knowledge that you are directly supporting not only the bands, but also the festival organisers who worked their ass off to deliver such a good line up. There's a selection of local food and drink, which adds to the friendly, intimate atmosphere.

CONS:
Being held on a Thursday, Friday and Saturday does mean that you have to book that one day extra off work! But hey, it's a sacrifice I'm willing to make.


WHO IS PLAYING 2000 TREES 2016:
REFUSED, REFUSED, REFUSED. Who are the main reason I am SO excited to go there this year. Other than that we have We Were Promised Jetpacks, who are one of the best indie bands I've discovered this year to date, and of course, Sikth. Sikth were the soundtrack to my life in 2004 and I haven't seen them live since way back then either, so it'll be good to see if they are bangin' as I remember. We also have The Bronx, The King Blues and Mallory Knox.
