Deaf Havana drummer Tom Ogden says: “Personally I’m so excited to headline 2000 Trees. Last time Deaf Havana headlined my daughter was born, so I didn’t make it! It’s the only show I’ve ever missed, so I’m so thankful that we’ve been asked back.”

Festival organiser James Scarlett adds: “I may be bigging myself up a bit here, but it’s definitely the best lineup we’ve ever had at Trees in terms of strength in depth. 

“There is so much amazing music! My picks from this announcement are A.A. Williams, Angel Du$t, Sœur and the utterly bonkers PENGSHUi. Check them all out!”
