2000trees Festival 2022 announces new headliners IDLES

2000trees Festival 2022 can today announce that their Saturday night, main stage headliner are the incredible IDLES. They are one of THE bands of the moment, a real ‘generational’ act, and this will be their first ever 2000trees headline slot, having played the festival, on their smallest stage, only 6 years ago – an incredible story. 

From Mark Bowen of IDLES – “2000trees were one of the first festivals to book us way back in 2015 before we even had an album out, they always support new music and bring something fresh to their audiences, giving opportunities for artists to reach their audience. To give us the opportunity to return as headliners, as a bigger, better and more gnarlier beast is an absolute privilege.”

Brutal Assault 25 Bands update

Hey all, there is some new bands update for upcomming Brutal Assault (Aug 10-14th 2021) if things go well.

We can expect thrash metal legend predecessor of Machine Head. Jep, Phil Demmel with the VIO-LENCE. They should also have some new material during the festival. British ONSLAUGHT also introduce their newest stuf. Other announced band is going to be REVOCATION.

Little bit of death metal now. From mighty metal Finland there are going to be shows of INSOMNIUM or MORS PRINCIPIUM EST. USA will deliver us faster BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, RIVERS OF NIHIL or wacky NEKROGOBLIKON with their green imp. UNDERGANG is another legend for the event. Their old school, rotten death metal is the top notch classic. PHLEBOTOMIZED will represent combo of death and doom.

Melancholical side of doom metal will be represented by German AHAB. More experimental approach could be expected from French REGARDE LES HOMMES TOMBER. Britain will be represented by WINTERFYLLETH with their emotinal additives of black and folk melodies.

People who wanna have a little rest from serious stuff might be happy for RED FANG or JOHN GARCIA AND THE BAND OF GOLD.

Brutal Assault is open also for other experiments. DIE KRUPPS are the pioneers of industrial and electro rock. We will witness Norwegian MANES. Local scene cannot miss as well and now with the Czech EBM legend VANESSA.

Unfortunatelly, some bands are also cancelled. These are BIRDS IN ROW, KMFDM, KVERLERTAK, SVARTISDAUDI, VADER, WORMROT.

Brutal Assault will be five day event and consists of 150 interprets. there are confirmation of 2/3 bands right now.
