Celebrating its 5th birthday this summer, 2000trees has established itself as one of the leading small festivals in the British summer calendar, winning the Grass Roots Festival Award in the UK Festival Awards 2010 – voted for by festival fans. In the Awards’ words:
“Often the best small festivals spring from an organic labour of love and a long-time dream which has been shared by thousands more. These festivals should be celebrated, not just for the courage and vision shown by their organisers, but also because they never forget where they’ve come from, supporting their local communities and new music along the way while retaining an independent spirit and resisting commercial saturation.”
2000trees is also ‘A Greener Festival Award’ winner for its dedication to being one of the UK’s greenest festivals, set within the stunning backdrop of Upcote Farm, near Cheltenham.
Created by a group of friends in 2007, the festival was borne out of frustration with the ever increasing corporate sponsorship and ‘musical merry-go-round’ nature of the larger mainstream British festivals. Disillusioned by extortionate ticket prices and over priced food and drink, this band of festival veterans vowed to take matters into their own hands and in true punk rock style set about developing the perfect antidote.
Tickets cost just £59 for an adult weekend camping pass. Children under 10 go free but children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. Early Entry tickets for Thursday, July 14th are £12.
