Last week saw 2000trees announce 20 new acts for the 2018 festival, scheduled to take place at Upcote Farm in mid-July. Among the many additions are Scottish alt-rockers Frightened Rabbit, who have played the festival a number of times, and offered the below statement;

“We’re so pleased to be back at 2000trees Festival,” Frightened Rabbit say. “It’s always been a favourite of ours and they gave us our first ever UKfestival headline slot so it’s a special place for us. Also they have peacocks!”

Other new acts who were announced last week include Blood Red Shoes, And So I Watch You From Afar, My Vitriol, Black Honey, Queen Kwong, Vukovi, Blood Command, Brutus, Funeral Shakes, Nova Twins, Bloody Knees, Muskets, P D Liddle, No Violet, Phoxjaw, Warshy and Soeur

These acts join Enter Shikari, At The Drive In, Hell is for Heroes, Creeper, Basement, Arcane Roots, The Xcerts, Ben Marwood and a whole host of acts across four stages.

The festival announced over the Easter weekend that they had a unique way in which they would introduce the next few line-up announcements – one new act would be announced at 9am every day this week.

Today saw the announcement of Turnstile, who will play the Axiom stage on Thursday. A five-piece hardcore punk act from Baltimore, Turnstile released their second album, ‘Time and Space’ in February.

Stay tuned for the next 4 days as GIGsoup cover the next four line-up announcements, ahead of our general coverage of 2000 Trees 2018.
