Arcane Roots on 2000 Trees

2000 Trees has announced the first wave of bands for this year’s festival and it’s an eclectic, yet brilliant mix.

Arcane Roots return to Cheltenham after a blistering mainstage performance last year alongside Pulled Apart By Horses, Solemn Sun and a reunited Kerbdog. The St. Pierre Snake Invasion, Milk Teeth, &U&I and Rob Lynch provide four more reasons to get excited about a weekend in the Cotswolds.

Arcane Roots are currently working on the follow-up to their debut ‘Blood & Chemistry’. I spoke to the band at 2000 Trees last year and this is what they had to say about the festival.

“We love playing festivals, especially 2000 Trees,” starts Andrew Groves. “It’s a really important festival to us. Last time we played here, it was incredible. We’re really excited.”

“I like the ethos, it’s the same with Arctangent (who also announced their first batch of bands today),” he continues. “They care. They genuinely choose bands they’re excited to see. I see them running round trying to see bands. They’re festival goers themselves and they know what people want.”

“The production is better as well,” he reasons. “You go to some of the bigger festivals and the people don’t know what’s going on, they don’t really care and it’s a mess. Here, it’s that great size where there’s a scene to it. There are a lot of people who care about 2000 Trees, it’s got a real legacy to it and everyone that works here, likes being here. It’s the reason it’s always incredible,” he finishes. “There’s a lot of love to it and that translates.”

Tickets for 2000 Trees are available now.
