Jimmy Eat World and Thrice confirmed as headliners for 2000 Trees festival in 2021

A third headliner will be announced in the coming weeks

Jimmy Eat World and Thrice have been confirmed to appear as headliners at next year’s 2000 Trees festival.

Both acts were set to appear at the 2020 event along with AFI before it was postponed in April due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“We’ve tried for as long as possible to stay optimistic and keep the dream alive, but unfortunately we’ve been forced to take the incredibly tough decision to postpone 2000trees until July 8-11, 2021,” a statement from organisers read at the time. “After 13 years, we really can’t comprehend a summer without 2000trees, and we’re truly gutted.”
