Festival season is officially looking ah-mazing!
2000Trees Festival have announced its first headliner, and it’s none other than Jimmy Eat World. Completing what has been a stellar finish to twenty nine-scene.
The acclaimed Arizona four-piece recently released their new record Surviving, where front man Jim Adkins once again proves himself as one of the most prolific songwriters in rock & roll, adding to their catalogue of nine albums.
“We don’t usually announce Trees bands before Christmas but having Jimmy Eat World as Main Stage headliner just got us too damn excited.” Says booker James Scarlett. “I’m honestly absolutely certain this is going to be our biggest and best line up ever. We have another 50 odd bands ready to go but I’m afraid you’ll have to wait until January for details. My advice is get your tickets now before it sells out!”
In 2019 the festival banned plastic and introduced the GreenGoblet cup scheme. This all contributed to a 6 tonne reduction in waste from the previous year. They also had Frank Water for the first time and over the course of the weekend, Frank Water served just over 6,700 litres of chilled filtered water from the kiosks. This means that around 13,500 single use plastic bottles that haven’t ended up in landfill or our oceans. Go 2000 Trees!
2000Trees Festival is partnering with two fantastic charities this year. Stay tuned for how you can get involved in the coming months.
