From Mallroy Knox – “We’re really happy to be coming back to play 2000 Trees again this year. 2000 Trees has always been one of our favourite festivals and it was one of our highlights in last year’s calendar. We were really eager to come back and play this great festival when we heard there was an opportunity to do so. This is our third time playing here now but our first as a four piece, and we’re excited to play some new songs we’ve been working alongside older tunes.”

From Skinny Lister –  “We’re excited to be back at the amazing 2000trees Festival. You can expect the usual shanty punk antics, the flagon of rum & we’ll be road testing a few new tracks from our forthcoming album! Can’t wait!”

From Vodun – “We are excited to be playing 2000trees Festival this year and can’t wait for the rapture! Unleashing new songs from our new album ‘ASCEND’ to the masses. We are honoured.”

From 2000trees Festival organiser James Scarlett –  “The Forest Sessions is one of my favourite things about the festival, so I can’t wait to see what the artists can pull out of the bag this year – particularly Enter Shikari who I know have something special planned! It’s a chance to see artists play stripped back sets out of their usual comfort zone and often produces the highlight of the festival. The Jamie Lenman covers set from 2016 is probably the best thing I’ve ever seen at Trees and Frank Carter & Hundred Reasons last year were incredible.”
