We’ve scoped out this year’s 2000 Trees lineup and picked out the 10 acts you can’t miss…

Between the forest stage, the excellent lineup and the mega silent disco, we don’t know what’s got us more excited for 2000 Trees, but they’re all definitely up there. These 10 acts have individually played a pretty large part in our excitement too, so, join us, you’ll definitely thank us later.

Honeyblood

Our fave Scottish duo Honeyblood will be bringing all the fun, Stina Tweeddale and Cat Myers are masters of grunge-pop, following the release of their debut album Babes Never Die last year they’ve been going from strength to strength and we could think of no better place to celebrate that then at 2000 Trees.

Skinny Lister

Skinny Lister have been touring pretty incessantly of late, it’s no surprise either when you’re a band who have such massive live talents as this Greenwich band. Having just announced a joint tour with their label mates Beans on Toast, there is no stopping Skinny Lister; 2000 Trees will be one hell of a party.

Vukovi

A brand new Scottish fave here in experimental rock four piece, Vukovi, they’ve recently released their self-titled debut album and it’s more than blown us away. We predict massive things from these in the next 12 months, so don’t miss this prime opportunity to get on the Vukovi train nice and early.

Sløtface

Ahh, Sløtface, what can we say, we’ve been blowing their metaphorical trumpet for quite some time now. We could not be more excited for their debut album, due out in September, they’ve released a few EP’s so far, each better than the previous. Their live shows are pretty fantastic too, full of energy, melodies and attitude; dancing shoes are a must for this band.

Spring King

Spring King are basically festival must have’s now, right? Their talents live are phenomenal, a controlled, yet free set from start to finish that we defy you to keep still to. Don’t think you’ll be able to get away without a singalong or two, either! We’ll see you at the front for these guys dancing ferociously to ‘Mumma’.

Get Inuit

Get Inuit have fairly recently stolen our hearts, but that doesn’t mean we’re any less besotted with them than any of our long-term loves. From enigmatic frontman Jamie Glass to the individual impressive talents of James, Ollie and Rob, it’s no surprise that they’re gaining attention, and in turn, fans, left right and centre at the moment. Hell, they even faked their own death (kind of). This band is a 100% must see of the whole weekend, trust us.

Fizzy Blood

Their recent release ‘Summer of Luv’ has got us all hoping for a very lovey-dovey 2000 Trees. They’ve said a goodbye to musical stereotypes and their confidently paving a path of their own, with powerful riffs, super infectious melodies and much, much more. You’re not going to want to miss this one.

Peaness

Based in Chester, Peaness are the three-piece indie-pop band that have been taking our breathe away one EP at a time since they formed back in 2014. They’re modestly building their fan base up, but we’re sure that one appearance to the 2000 Trees family will be all it takes for them to win your hearts and ears over for good.

Orchards

They’re headlining our Future Cuts show next Saturday, but first, they’ll be wowing all 2000 Trees goers this weekend with their dreamy, indie pop sounds. Get right down the front for this one, as we’re certain it’s going to be special.

Laoise

Adding some electro pop to sooth our souls this weekend will be Ireland’s own Laoise, her debut EP Halfway is out right now and we definitely suggest giving it a spin before heading down to see her, have a dance and a singalong to her delicious pop melodies.
