I know – it’s impossible to believe that 2000trees Festival’s line up could get any better. But read this fellow music lovers, American punk rock 
legends, Alkaline Trio are now closing Saturday night’s Main Stage. 

Formed in 1996 and now have with their own label Heart and Skull. In 2010 the band released two albums that saw them return to their punk rock roots. Their 15th Anniversary was celebrated with the release of Damnesia which featured acoustic-based recordings from across their career and re-workings of some of their most popular songs.

Their album My Shame is True is the most recent studio album from 2013 that features the pre-album single, ‘I Wanna Be a Warhol’. It has been two years since the album was released and their 426,798 fans on Facebook are itching for them to release a new one.

An eclectic line-up

If you can’t wait for their next studio album then get down to Cheltenham to hopefully hear their repertoire include songs from all their albums. This band are highly popular not just in Chicago, but world wide. 

The band join the 2000trees line up which includes Deaf Havana, Bury Tomorrow, The Sub Ways, Deafeater and The Skints and will be entered into the festivals hall of fame along side Frank Turner, Dan le Sac v Scroobius Pip, Bombay Bicycle Club, Los Campesinos!, Tribes, Goldheart Assembly and Tall Ships – to name but a few.

As if that wasn’t international enough for you, it’s believed welsh band Mclusky* are set to headline The Cave with further names added to the bill including Future of The Left, Benjamin Booker, Vennart and Hacktivist.

“We’re proud of the outright brilliance of all the acts across our line-up and it is undoubtedly the best we’ve ever had in terms of diversity across six stages, from internationally famous names to local heroes” – Organiser Andy Rea.

Not only have 2000trees announced the above mentioned bands, but in the final line-up they have added Skinny Lister, Boy Jumps Ship, and Oh Boy! to the bill. Oh Boy! are described as a ‘noisy bunch from the Midlands’ who state that they deal in noise, pop and grunge loveliness, which makes them a perfect fit for 2000trees.
