The sixth and final 2000trees Festival 2018 have finalised their line-up and it includes some incredible new additions and well as the full Forest Stage (acoustic) line up. The Forest Stage is 2000trees Festival hidden gem, home to some of the most essential sets and performances from years gone by. Nestled inside a forest near the main camping site, its stunning location and small, triangle stage is a ‘must do’ across the festival weekend, really bringing into focus this great event’s ethos of wonderful music played with passion in breathtaking locations.

Confirmed acts include Enter Shikari, My Vitriol, Arcane Roots, The Xcerts, Sean McGowan, Undead Daisies to name but a few and now Mallory Knox, Skinny Lister, Will Varley, Beans On Toast as well as a host of other brilliant acts and talent booked just for the Forest stage. These include the gentleman genius and 2000trees Festival legend Jamie Lenman, the fast rising and dare we say it, essential Louise Distras, the wonderfully smart and witty troubadour Rob Lynch and INME front man Dave McPherson.

On top of all of that, as with every year, the Forest Stage will also be a home for some of the country’s most exciting new and rising student talent, with over fifteen acts from BIMM playing throughout the weekend, as well as students from the University of Gloucestershire.

2000trees Festival organiser James Scarlett said; “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.”

2000trees Festival is located on Upcote Farm near Cheltenham, Gloucestershire GL54 4BL.
