After two years away, 2000trees will be back in Cheltenham between July 6th-9th next year.

2000trees organisers have confirmed the festival’s 2022 return, with new Saturday headliners Idles leading the revamped line-up.

“2000trees were one of the first festivals to book us way back in 2015 before we even had an album out, they always support new music and bring something fresh to their audiences, giving opportunities for artists to reach their audience,” Idles guitarist Mark Bowen says.

“To give us the opportunity to return as headliners, as a bigger, better and more gnarlier beast is an absolute privilege.”

“If anyone wanted proof that 2000trees 2022 is going to be the biggest and best yet then look no further than our Saturday headliners Idles,” booker James Scarlett adds.

“They played on the Neu Stage back in 2016 so it’s pretty mad that a few years later they’ve grown big enough to headline the 2000trees main stage!”
