A bank holiday weekend is just the time to be day dreaming about the forthcoming summer and the ways in which you might wish to spend it. Of course many of you will be taking a trip down to 2000trees and hopefully you will have already bought your tickets. Here is a reminder why you should be spending time there this July.

Favourite bands – but which is yours?

The excitement levels at Upcote Farm are particularly high this weekend at the thought that in a few weeks time (9th- 11th July to be precise) you could be watching the likes of Deaf Havana and Alkaline Trio whilst clutching a Badgers Bottom.

What the guys really want to know though is, out of all the bands that will be gracing the stages, which will be your favourites. To help them out of this quandary why not mooch around these helpful Spotify Playlists to get your eardrums humming and then pop over to their Facebook page to enlighten them.

The playlists have been organised into the various stages, so you don’t have to think too hard on this Friday evening. Click on the links below to take you to band heaven:

Main Stage

The Cave

The Axiom

The Croft

All bands

There is also a handy link on twitter:

And should you be listening to all that and wondering why the hell you haven’t got a ticket, wonder no longer. Do not be like Dan on twitter…

Tickets are still available http://www.twothousandtreesfestival.co.uk/tickets/ 

There is plenty of choice…including the indulgent glamping option!

Yes, if the idea of having to erect your tent yourself at Upcote Farm is too tiring then why not impress your mates/partner/stranger you met on the train or the green shuttlebus on the way over by opting for Glamping.

With ‘luxurious and funky interiors’ SShh Luxury Yurts and Karma Canvas Bell Tents are ready to take the strain for you. Be warned though – if you take a peep here, I can’t guarantee you’ll be able to refuse; they use words such as Egyptian cotton sheets and comfortable mattress.


Fancy dress theme announced

All that space in a yurt will give you plenty of room to get your fancy dress on. This year, as chosen by you the Facebook friends of 2000trees, the theme is “Literal representations of band names”.

The organisers have kindly allowed songs and album names as well, so the world of fancy dress really is your oyster and having seen the line up (I think) they are in for some insane costumes this year. Check out what you might go as by visiting the line up page.

So come on festival lovers this is the place to be. Grab your tickets, your tent (or glamp it up this year) and put a smile into your summer by getting down to Upcote Farm and 2000trees this July.
