The 2000trees festival is an award-winning[1] independent music festival dedicated to bringing together the best new and underground British music for one weekend every July, held at Upcote Farm, Withington, near Cheltenham in Gloucestershire.[2] It offers a diverse selection of more than 80 acts on four stages, plus comedy, trader village,and the very popular outdoor headphone disco. It also won the Grass Roots Festival Award at the UK Festival Awards 2010.[3]

2000trees was started by six friends in 2007, who grew tired of being made to pay too much at other festivals to see the bands they love. They decided to create a value for money alternative, which also raises awareness of environmental concerns.[4] The festival has performances across a number of stages which have evolved over the years, including: Main Stage, The Cave (second stage), The Axiom (formerly The Leaf Lounge), The Croft (formerly The Greenhouse) and Forest Sessions.

The 2018 edition of 2000trees will take place on 12th-14th July 2018.
