Brutus say: “We are really stoked to be back at 2000 Trees. We didn’t know what to expect when we played the festival for the first time last year, and it was just amazing – such a nice crowd and so many great bands, we are really happy to be back again this year.

“We’re looking forward to that moment when you drive your van out of the hills and you see the festival site! Awesome!”

Queen Kwong adds: “I can’t wait to play 2000 Trees because I’ve wanted to be a part of it for a really long time, now. I know it’s going to go off.”

Frightened Rabbit say they’re delighted to be back at the festival, and add: “It’s always been a favourite of ours and they gave us our first ever UK festival headline slot so it’s a special place for us. Also they have peacocks!”
