We’re all tired of hearing our favorite festivals being cancelled by COVID, and at this point it comes as no surprise. 2000trees, the indie music festival annually held at Upcote Farm in the UK, will now be transformed into a virtual livestream.
The festival, appropriately renamed ‘2000screens’ will take place on July 9-11. According to NME, “live performances, podcasts, and archival performances…will be streamed via the festival’s Facebook and Instagram pages”.
Jimmy Eat World, Thrice, Milk Teeth, Enter Shikari, Jamie Lenman, and more are included in the lineup.
Festival organizer James Scarlett stated, “Obviously we’re gutted that there won’t be a 2000trees this summer, but I can promise you that this is the next best thing.”
Looking for hints into 2021’s lineup? You’ll have to tune into the festival and be on the lookout for an interview between Sappenin podcast and some of the organizers.
This will be the first summer in 13 years without the 2000trees festival as we know it, but the live shows are set to make a return July 8th – 11th, 2021.
