Passed

This event has been and gone.

Cheltenham's multi-award winning 2000trees Festival is hosting it's 10th Year Extravaganza in 2016!

2000trees is all about New and Underground British Music. There are no genre distinctions (although most of the bands do tend to hold guitars), just guaranteed great music in the beautiful Cotswolds. In no particular order, you'll also get an amazingly friendly atmosphere, the highest quality food traders possible and locally handcrafted ales, lagers and ciders.

As tickets are strictly limited to 5,000, 2000trees is an intimate festival and sells out every year!

See www.twothousandtreesfestival.co.uk/ for further information and tickets.

IDLES

IDLES appearing at this event

IDLES are a heavy post-punk band from Bristol. They want to entertain and hurt in equal measure. They believe that art and violence work. Their spirit colour is coral pink. One of them loves queuing, one struggles counting, one has been arrested 8 times, one doesn't like music and one puts sausage rolls on his pizza! 'IDLES are hard to capture, because they're not Fat White Family, they're not Sleaford Mods, they are very much their own incarnation of uncompromising rhythmical punk rock. Lyrically, a mixture of dry obsessional humour and poetic slogans. But, best of all, they really get the adrenaline pumping' - Steve Lamacq, BBC6 Music.

The Bronx

The Bronx appearing at this event

Southern Californian heavy punk group. After a mere twelve live shows they were signed to a major label in 2002 and have since developed a cult following on the American punk scene. Fusing eighties hardcore along the lines of bands such as Black Flag, Fear and Jane's Addiction, with a more modern day rock style, their sound is blistering, unashamed and completely unmistakable. Their original goal was to bring passionate, blood-and-sweat punk rock into the 21st Century.

While She Sleeps

While She Sleeps appearing at this event

While She Sleeps are a post-hardcore five-piece from Sheffield. Since the release of their mini-album, ‘The North Stands For Nothing’, in the summer of 2010, While She Sleeps have been on a trailblazing path that has seen them become one of the fastest rising bands on the UK hard rock and metal circuits for some years. From a sold out headline tour, their tent-swelling set at Sonisphere festival, venues on the prestigious Kerrang! tour having queues of people snaked around the block so that fans could get in to see Sleeps open the bill, to critical acclaim across the pages of Kerrang! Metal Hammer and Rock Sound and regular plays on Radio 1, Scuzz and Kerrang! TV, the Sheffield natives have rapidly and justifiably become one of the highest regarded rock bands in Britain.
