Following on from its recent win in December 2018 as the Best Medium Sized Festival in the UK at the UK Festival Awards, 2000trees Festival returns. The three day music festival will take place on Thursday 11th July, Friday 12th July and Saturday 13th July at Upcote Farm near Cheltenham, and the first band announcement is here!
We have 33 bands to shout about and t
o start it all off, headlining the main stage on the Friday 12th July, on their first ever time playing, are the mighty You Me At Six.
Since forming as teenagers in Weybridge, Surrey, You Me At Six have notched up a list of considerable achievements. Four UK Gold Records, five Top Ten albums in the UK including Number One album ‘Cavalier Youth’, sold out UK headline arena tours, and an unparalleled 15 consecutive A-List singles on BBC Radio One. Not to mention also multiple sold-out US headline tours, a Number One rock song in the UK & Australia and Top Five Rock Radio track in North America in ‘Room To Breathe’. Having sold over 65,000 tickets in the UK this year in support of new album ‘VI’ and the 10th anniversary of debut album ‘Take Off Your Colours’, You Me At Six are undoubted heavyweights in the live arena. Their recent headline tour was met with phenomenal demand, selling out four months in advance, and in just twenty minutes. As well as gracing the headliner slot at 2000trees Festival, 2019 will see the band take their live show to both Europe and North America.
From You Me At Six – “We’re really looking forward to headlining 2000trees Festival this summer. We’ve heard many amazing things about the festival, in particular it’s unrivalled atmosphere and location. The lineup is always superb, so it’s going to be a pleasure to be a part of things this year. It’s going to be a special show.”

The Metalitalia.com Festival team and all their patrons are looking forward to a very special CANDLEMASS set!
CANDLEMASS have reunited with singer Johan Langquist, who performed on the band’s 1986 debut album “Epicus Doomicus Metallicus”. Johan is back after a 32 year hiatus replacing Mats Levén who’s been with the band since 2012.
The band stated: “We wanted to find our way back to the roots of Candlemass, back to the soul and essence of the band. Johan Langquist is back and we hope this will give us some new energy and kickstart the heart of doom again. We don’t know if it will last 10 more years or even 5, but if it will give us just another year of having fun and playing the music that we love so much, it will be a blast! The circle is closed, Johan is back!”.
