“I’m very proud of the Trees line up this year and I think the thing getting me most excited at the moment is the number of bands that feel like they are about to break big,” said 2000trees Festival organiser James Scarlett. “If you don’t know all the bands from the following list then get on it now. Culture Abuse, Dune Rats, YONAKA, Free Throw, Drug Church, Gouge Away, ANGEL DU$T, Can’t Swim… I could go on!”
