It’s an exciting year for us and this will be a real highlight.” 2000trees organiser James Scarlett said: “We book exciting and interesting bands who bring something new to the music industry and Band of Skulls are exactly that. We are delighted they will be headlining our festival and today’s announcement shows the greatest ever strength in depth of our line-up, there really is a lot of talent and we’ve still got much more to announce in coming weeks.” 5,000 music fans will get the chance to discover the very best new and underground bands on six stages, plus comedy, DJs, quality food and drink and much more, in a picturesque Cotswolds setting. 2000trees Festival scooped the Grass Roots Award at the UK Festival Awards last year. The three-day event takes place at Upcote Farm, near Cheltenham on July 10-12.
