This morning 2000Trees announced emo superstars Jimmy Eat World as their first headliner for 2020!
The revered Arizona four-piece recently released their ninth studio album, Surviving , further cementing their place as the one of rock’s most prolific and consistent bands.
It’s clear how excited the festival is to be hosting them, as they couldn’t wait to get the news out this side of Christmas.
“We don’t usually announce Trees bands before Christmas but having Jimmy Eat World as Main Stage headliner just got us too damn excited.” Says booker James Scarlett. “I’m honestly absolutely certain this is going to be our biggest and best line up ever. We have another 50 odd bands ready to go but I’m afraid you’ll have to wait until January for details. My advice is get your tickets now before it sells out!”
2000Trees has secured its place as one of Britian’s leading festivals over recent years, winning ‘Best Medium Sized Music Festival’ in 2018 at the UK Festival Awards. Now ‘trees’ is using its profile to do some good and change the way festivals are perceived.
In 2019 they banned plastic and introduced the GreenGoblet cup scheme; contributing to a 6 tonne reduction in waste from the previous year. Frank Water also attended for the first time and over the course of the weekend, served just over 6,700 litres of chilled filtered water. This means that around 13,500 single use plastic bottles that haven’t ended up in landfill or our oceans.
In 2020, 2000Trees will be working with two charities, with details on how you can get involved coming soon.
Attitude is Everything (registered charity number 1121975) works in partnership with audiences, artists and the live music industry to improve deaf and disabled people’s access to live music. “I’m thrilled that 2000Trees are the first music company to announce how they are going to ‘play their part’ in Attitude is Everything’s 20th Anniversary next year. 2000Trees have chosen us as one of their charity partners: fans and guests of the festival will be able to donate to us when purchasing their tickets.” Suzanne Bull MBE, CEO.
TREE AID helps people in the drylands of Africa to lift themselves out of poverty and protect their environment. People here live in some of the toughest conditions on earth and trees are essential to their survival. Trees provide nutrition, generate income and help to create a healthy environment. TREE AID works with local communities to help them protect and grow trees, for themselves and for future generations.
With such a promising start to next year’s 2000Trees bill after just one band, we cannot wait to see what else they have up their sleeves.
2000Trees takes place on 9th, 10th and 11th July 2020.
