Also announced include the recently reformed and much loved Kids In Glass Houses, the brilliant American emo rock band from Michigan, Hot Mulligan, Blackpool rockers Boston Manorand the Ontario two-piece (that make far more noise than two people can possibly make), Cleopatrick.

From Hot Mulligan guitarist Chris Freeman – “I’m really excited to be playing 2000trees. A bunch of our friends have been going over there for years and have nothing but good things to say about the festival. It’s going to be great to see it in person for once instead of living vicariously through videos.”
From Dead Pony guitarist, Blair Crichton – “Our first time at 2000trees was last year and we felt like we had come home. There is no other festival with an atmosphere like trees. They are cultivating a scene that promotes the youth and respects the past. We feel blessed to be invited back and onto bigger stages this year, it’s gonna be massive!!”
