Due to the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic, the 2020 iteration of the 2000 Trees Festival was inevitably cancelled.
Nevertheless, plans are in place for the festival to return in 2021, with the announcement of the first headliner: Jimmy Eat World!
The band were set to headline this year but now the band will be headlining the main stage on the Thursday night of the festival.
James Scarlett, the 2000 Trees organiser has said:
“We’re mega excited to announce that Jimmy Eat World will be at 2000trees 2021 as our Main Stage Thursday headliner. They were the first band we announced for 2020 so it felt like the right thing to let people know now.
“I also really can’t wait to shout about the rest of the 2021 line up – a little bit of inside info is that it will feature loads of the 2020 bands with some very special cherries on top. Watch this space!”
2000 Trees has also launched a crowd funder for people to help support the festival. The perks from this offer a range of things from t-shirts to que jumping at the toilets.
James has said:
“Today we’ve launched a 2000trees crowd funder with some amazing rewards for our fans and supporters.
“As people are already aware, due to the COVID-19 pandemic 2000trees has been postponed until 2021. This means that, as an independent business with no corporate backers this crowd funder will secure the long term survival of 2000trees and help to support thousands of others that depend on 2000trees each year.
“If people are able to help out then they will be a hero not just to the six of us who work all year round on the festival, but our whole team and everyone else that loves 2000trees.”
The crowd funder can be found via this link.
The 2021 iteration of 2000 Trees will take place 8th – 10th July 2021 at Upcote Farm, Cheltenham.
