Festival line-up update: 2000trees, Chagstock, Kendal Calling

By | Published on Tuesday 28 May 2013


Having seemingly not learned their lesson after running a sixteen hour showcase at this year’s Great Escape, the folks from Alcopop! Records have been announced as the latest label to take over the GreenHouse stage for a day at the 2000trees festival in July. Alcopop! will test the ground on the Friday, before Xtra Mile comes in on the Saturday.

Alcopop! boss Jack Clothier told CMU: “We’re massive fans of everything about 2000trees, and it’s lovely that they’ve invited us to get involved with this takeover. Our artists can bring a really beautiful dimension to their sets on occasions like this, and it’s a good place for our friends to come when they have crushing festival hangovers”.

2000trees organiser Andy Rea added: “We’ve brought together the amazing artists from these two great labels to offer something unique to our fans, who have always loved the GreenHouse stage as a place to enjoy acoustic sets in the sunshine – and as Jack says it’s a great way to get over a hangover! We’re thrilled to be spending a fun-filled weekend with everyone and can’t wait for these one-off treats for fans of new and underground British music”.
