From 2000trees Festival organiser and main man James Scarlett - “Frank Turner headlined the first ever 2000trees in 2007 so it’s amazing to have him headline our main stage this year (as well as playing with Möngöl Hörde the following day). Frank and the Sleeping Souls have kind of become our house band over the years and long may that continue. I really feel that this is shaping up to be the best 2000trees yet!”
