Mallroy Knox say: “We're really happy to be coming back to play 2000 Trees again this year. It’s always been one of our favourite festivals and it was one of our highlights in last year's calendar. 

“We were really eager to come back and play this great festival when we heard there was an opportunity to do so. This is our third time playing here now but our first as a four piece, and we're excited to play some new songs we've been working alongside older tunes.”

Organisers have also released details of the acoustic Forest Stage, which will see performances from artists including Enter Shikari, My Vitriol, Arcane Roots, Jamie Lenman, Fatherson, The XCERTS, Jonah Matranga, Dave McPherson, Louise Distras, Press To Meco, Grumble Bee and Rob Lynch.
