After having to sadly cancel this year’s festivities due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, 2000TREES have been making it up to their fans by announcing the first headliner for 2021!
The organisers have announced that Jimmy Eat World will be the first headline act for 2000Trees 2021. Announcing the big news, they said: “We’re mega excited to announce that Jimmy Eat World will be at 2000trees 2021 as our Main Stage Thursday headliner. They were the first band we announced for 2020 so it felt like the right thing to let people know now. I also really can’t wait to shout about the rest of the 2021 line up – a little bit of inside info is that it will feature loads of the 2020 bands with some very special cherries on top. Watch this space!”
Keep an eye out for more updates and announcements – things are gonna be exciting!
Along with the first headliner for next year, 2000Trees have also announced they’ve started a crowd-funder. As an independent festival, 2000Trees doesn’t get as great of funding as many other UK festivals; and this is why it’s more important now than ever to support the organisers and keep it going for many years to come.
Those who support the crowd-funder do get some fantastic prizes and have control on how they decide to support and sponsor the festival. The organisers have said: “Today we’ve launched a 2000trees crowd funder with some amazing rewards for our fans and supporters. As people are already aware, due to the COVID-19 pandemic 2000trees has been postponed until 2021. This means that, as an independent business with no corporate backers this crowd funder will secure the long term survival of 2000trees and help to support thousands of others that depend on 2000trees each year. If people are able to help out then they will be a hero not just to the six of us who work all year round on the festival, but our whole team and everyone else that loves 2000trees.”
